Manchester United and CSKA Moscow facing off on Match Day 2 of the Champions League group stage is quite intriguing.

In Premier League, United have so far kept a near ideal win record with 5 wins and 1 draw in their last league games. Michael Carrick has also been ruled out with a minor injury. The manager was sympathetic towards the Swede's lack of game time leading up to the game and iterated that the defender will be given more playing time as the season progresses.

CSKA are now on a seesaw run in the Russian Premier League with 20 points, they are placed 4th on the table.

Henirkh Mkhitaryan, with his customary Euro away goal, completed the rout as United ran up their biggest Champions League win since they trounced Bayer Leverkusen 5-0 in Germany during David Moyes spell in charge four years ago. Thus far, Fernandes has created two chances and played two key passes in the opening night's victory against Portuguese champions Benfica. Both teams will be looking to come through the game with extra knocks. Each team has to play six matches.

Mourinho has already made it clear that he will go all out in every tournament that they are competing in.

The Armenia worldwide has started eight of United's nine games this season - only being rested for the Carabao Cup victory over Burton Albion - and has already racked up five assists and a goal in the Premier League.

United striker, Romelu Lukaku has had a significant impact on the squad since his arrival at Old Trafford.

In a statement on the club's website on Monday, United said: "All supporters must use the official bus service provided, and we ask that you ensure your behaviour is impeccable at all times".

United boast an unbeaten record against CSKA, having won two of the four meetings, with the other two matches ending all square. CSKA has to give everything they can to stop United and to let them take all three crucial points. Jose Mourinho should field Anthony Martial to ensure United have enough width in this one, largely because it is via crosses into the box that the visitors will earn corners, from which Marouane Fellaini will be a major threat. There were some speculations that the Belgium International (Fellaini) was limping after the Southampton match.
