United supporters warned over Moscow behaviour

CSKA opened their campaign with an impressive 2-1 win away to Benfica and having come up against the Moscow giants several times in his managerial career, Mourinho feels this is the strongest they have ever been.

CSKA Moscow takes on Manchester United in a 2017/18 UEFA Champions League, Group Stage clash today. 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.

Unlike the last season, United is looking ruthless and plays an attacking game until the end of a match. Phil Jones and Eric Bailly are available after completing one and three-game suspensions respectively.

Mourinho described it as the best CSKA side he had faced while Goncharenko said it was the strongest United team since Sir Alex Ferguson had retired.

Mourinho was joined in his press duties by United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, whom the manager said he had brought on account of the Armenian speaking fluent Russian, which makes "life easier for the Russian press". He was so calm, so much in control.

Southampton's Shane Long raked his studs down the back of Fellaini's left ankle during United's 1-0 win at the St Mary's Stadium on Saturday.

A North Korea nuclear test over the Pacific? Logical, terrifying
Saturday's quake follows an escalation of the combative rhetoric between the North Korean and United States leaders this week. North Korea's weakest nuclear test, the first one conducted in 2006, generated a magnitude 4.3 quake.

Expect a low-scoring slog in Moscow on Wednesday, albeit one that tells us a lot about United's progress over the summer; they can not challenge for honours consistently unless they learn to win matches such as these. "We don't have Fellaini, we don't have Pogba and we don't have Carrick, all three midfield players we lose for this match, so there are not many solutions", said Mourinho.

Manchester Utd have won only one of their last 10 Champions League away games (D4 L5), it was against Bayer Leverkusen in November 2013 (5-0).

"He didn't say exactly names, but everyone thinks that they've done something bad or done some mistakes".

Mkhitaryan believes CSKA Moscow's experienced team can cause United problems at the VEB Arena.

Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Dimitar Berbatov, Anderson, Nani and Fabio were among United's starters that evening, while as many as five of the CSKA XI still remain with the club and are likely to be in the team on Wednesday, despite the passage of eight years. I'm not saying Mkhitaryan starts the match tomorrow.
