The Red Devils welcomed their Russian opponents to Old Trafford this evening, knowing that a point would guarantee them top spot in the Group A table.

There is no doubt Jose Mourinho's side will go into Saturdays game brimming with confidence after two impressive away wins in a week against Watford and Arsenal, although the loss of their creative spark in midfield Paul Pogba is a major blow. He plays tomorrow. Of course he's a bit tired because it was a huge match in the last weekend and just two days to recover for CSKA.

"Pogba's loss is bigger", he said on Sky Sports show The Debate. And the same for Marcus Rashford. But Eric Bailly, who last featured for the Reds against Chelsea on 5 November, remains sidelined, while captain Michael Carrick has also been ruled out. It's the truth, eh?

The England international was praised by Mourinho for his attacking intent, and for having the fitness to last the full game.

In his post-match press conference, Mourinho expanded on United's current injury problems and specifically referenced Lacazette and Silva's respective situations.

"Really dangerous, creating a lot, great intensity in his game". A position on the bench came the following week, but Lindelof was again overlooked completely for the next five Premier League fixtures.

United fell behind late in the first half when Vitinho's shot from Mario Fernandes's cut-back struck teammate Alan Dzagoev on its way into the net.

And the Metro thinks Shaw will be replaced by Tottenham defender Danny Rose with the paper claiming that Mourinho is "confident that a £50m deal can be struck in January".

"We didn't qualify yet, we didn't finish first in the group yet".

Manchester United faces CSKA Moscow on Tuesday at home to secure qualification to the Champions League's second round.

"We picked up some good experience from this Champions League campaign, especially for the young players".
