United top Group A on goal difference from CSKA after beating Basel 3-0 in their opening game.

It's also worth noting that according to Opta, Manchester United's five away games against Russian clubs in all competitions have produced only five goals (3 for, 2 against).

But the 23-year-old has now returned from suspension and is set to start against CSKA Moscow on Wednesday, with regular centre-back partner Phil Jones absent.

Jose Mourinho takes his team Manchester United by coach to Russian Federation against CSKA Moscow.

United have gone the extra yard for the CSKA clash, even paying the £118 cost for visas, in acknowledgement of the loyalty being shown by those fans still determined to make the trip. This season is good and the connection between me and other players is very good and we understand each other very well and hopefully we can score lots more.

CSKA Moscow 1-2 Man Utd: United have been hugely impressive so far this season and they'll be confident of scoring against a CSKA side that haven't kept a clean sheet in their last 29 Champions League games.

Fellaini, who holds particular importance for Mourinho, was the victim of a harsh challenge from Southampton's Shane Long at the weekend. "We try to focus on the globality [team as a whole] and we are going to have a team with quality, with balance, to try to win the match which is our objective".

"Since Sir Alex Ferguson left [in 2013], this current version of Manchester United is without any doubt, their strongest team", Goncharenko said. Midfielder Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Marcos Rojo remain sidelined as they are recovering from long-term injuries. CSKA won its first #Champions League Game against Benfica, but this time, a team from the toughest league is coming to face them. "We are a massive club and we will do everything we can to get to the final".

The Spaniard hasn't been required for large parts of the season, but you sense his presence in Moscow will be vital for United to maintain their control of proceedings against a CSKA side with nothing to lose. "Opponents-wise, I think it's the best CSKA side that I will have faced".

"We try to play well and in some moments of the match, if the opponent has moments of superiority, we have to be humble - like we were against Southampton - and cope with the hard moments of the game".
