Under-19s: CSKA Moscow 1 United 2

Manchester United have arrived in Russian Federation for their UEFA Champions League Group A match versus CSKA Moscow on Wednesday and manager Jose Mourinho has heaped praise on his side's opponents. "But it's not the first time I'm going to play in Champions League, I know how to deal with it, and I'm going to try to do my best to perform well as well", the Armenian added.

"It's a long trip with two hours of time difference that will demand a quick adjustment".

But the impressive Fellaini is a blow for the Portuguese, after the big Belgian showed he can be a big part of Mourinho's plans with a strong start to the season for United. "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.

The trio of Paul Pogba, Michael Carrick and Maroune Fellaini will be absent in the game against CSKA due to injury.

"Let me make it clear that normally we bring players here that are starting the match the next day", the boss said.

CSKA Moscow will be hosting the Premier League giants #Manchester United in the Champions League match on September 27 at CSKA's home turf, the VEB Arena in Moscow, Russia.

"After Crystal Palace there is the global break and Belgium was the first team to qualify (for the World Cup), so (they are) not even under pressure for a special big match".

Manchester United are unbeaten in all competitions so far during their 2017/18 campaign, having scored 17 goals in six Premier League games, and winning their Champions League opener against Swiss side Basel by a 3-0 scoreline.

Goncharenko is hopeful right-back Mario Fernandes will be fit to play after he was forced off with concussion in Saturday's 0-0 draw at Dynamo Moscow.

Jose Mourinho's men eased to a comfortable 3-0 victory over FC Basel in their opening fixture, with CSKA Moscow also winners, seeing off Benfica 2-1 in Portugal.

"I can say last season I started not good as I had lots of injuries and I didn't feel good playing games", Mkhitaryan said.

With that in mind, here are three players who must start against CSKA on Wednesday night.

"With regards to the Champions League, I'm available".

The Armenia global made something of a slow start to life as a Manchester United player following his transfer to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund last summer.
