Manchester United Under-19s maintained a winning start in Europe on Wednesday afternoon, overcoming a less-than-perfect pitch to beat CSKA Moscow 2-1 and make it two victories from two games in the UEFA Youth League. However, besides them, there is someone to play in midfield of the mankunians.

If United start slowly, CSKA can easily come out with at least a point from the game with the side they have.

PSG continued to show why they are many people's favourites for Champions League glory, beating fellow major contenders Bayern Munich 3-0 in Paris, courtesy of goals from Dani Alves, Edinson Cavani and Neymar, with the two former players appearing to get over their mini spat.for now anyway!

The Red Devils warmed up for the game with a hard fought 1-0 win at Southampton on Saturday to ensure they remain joint top of the Premier League table with Manchester City so Jose Mourinho's side are in great form. I expect Fellaini not to be out for a long time.

Jose Mourinho's went unchanged into this game and it seemed to work in the first half as they really took control before scoring in the 20th minute.

As Manchester United fans revel in the rumours surrounding Antoine Griezmann, Steve Nicol argues those stories could unsettle the players.

United brushed Switzerland champions Basel aside in their first group game a week ago and take on CSKA Moscow on Wednesday night in Russian Federation.

Mourinho said CSKA will provide his side with a stern test on Wednesday (19:45 BST kick-off) but believes they can return with three points.

While you'd like to say Manchester United has the advantage here, continuing without Pogba could be bad news.

It has been confirmed that Fellaini, Carrick and Jones haven't traveled to Russian Federation with the team.

With a quarter of the match gone, United looked very comfortable, knocking the ball around easily and orchestrating chances, one of which they should have buried, with Mkhitaryan hitting Daley Blind's low ball straight at the feet of goalkeeper Akineev from eight yards. In all, it was another storming European night which continues to bode well for Mourinho's men.

The hosts are on a streak of seven home Champions League matches to finish with two goals or fewer and eight of their last nine in all competitions, home and away, have also gone under.
