Manchester United midfielder Anderson hopes to see action tonight at Champions League opponents Benfica.

Anderson joined United after spending time with Porto.

"It will be special," said the Brazil international. "I do not know if I'll play, but I hope at least to come on during the game. I have a soft spot for Portuguese football.

"Benfica are very strong, they've only lost Fabio Coentrao and Ramires - and kept their coach, which is important."
