Lukaku's scoring run continues as Man United beats CSKA

Adjust Comment Print

United have great memories of Moscow after they won their third Champions League title here in 2008 against Chelsea in a penalty shootout. The speedy attacking midfielder was born in Yerevan in January 1989 and speaks fluent, accent-free Russian. Both United and CSKA won their opening Champions League games in Group A. Famously, the former Borussia Dortmund man also netted the final goal of the memorable 2-0 win over AFC Ajax in the competition's showpiece final in Stockholm, Sweden.

Throughout last season's successful UEFA Europa League campaign, Micki scored in four troublesome away ties at Zorya Luhansk in Ukraine, Saint-Etienne in France, FC Rostov in Russian Federation and Anderlecht in Belgium.

Carrick is also injured, while defender Phil Jones can play after a European suspension - but will not feature.

"Of course everyone knows that Jose Mourinho is very demanding and what he said, he's right", the Armenian told United's pre-match press conference at CSKA's VEB Arena on Tuesday.

Those who feel that a United victory is inevitable given the form that they are in can back it to make £6.90 for every tenner staked.

Manchester United have traveled to Russian Federation for their Champions League game against CSKA Moscow without Marouane Fellaini, while 29-year old Nemanja Matic has made it to the squad that flew out on Monday.

Security agencies were convinced that these killings and attacks are the handiwork of Qayoom and his associate Imtiyaz Kundoo. A specialist in carrying out attacks, preparing and planting of IEDs, Najar was known as the very close aide of Salahudin.

Paul Pogba's absence will be sorely felt.

"I won't have Fellaini, I won't have Pogba, we won't have Carrick, so all three midfield players that we lose for this match". "Paris have certainly given out a few more euros than us, but money doesn't score goals, quality on the pitch scores goals, good teams score goals", said Robben.

It would be interesting to see, however, if CSKA Moscow could overcome a strong Manchester United firing on all cylinders.

However, Mourinho's men do have a few injury concerns and face a tricky test against a CSKA Moscow side that has already beaten Benfica in Lisbon.

"We can not guarantee this line of success, but the way to keep it is to do what we are doing", the United manager said.

Belgium worldwide Fellaini was added to the absentee list after a Shane Long tackle in Saturday's win over Southampton injured his ankle and, with Carrick also missing, Ander Herrera is set to start.
