Man Utd boss Mourinho explains Rojo absence for CSKA Moscow win

Mourinho suggested Guardiola was being less than truthful by expressing doubts about the fitness of David Silva and hinted Wenger had done the same regarding Alexandre Lacazette prior to United's 3-1 win at Arsenal on Saturday.

The Russians needed to win and see Basel slip, but Lukaku and Rashford struck in the 65th and 66th minutes to end their chance of progress. His pace and ability to play all over the attacking third were on full display once again. He came off with 15 minutes left.

Yet two months ago, Lingard couldn't get in the team.

HT: Cuneyt Cakir blows his whistle for half-time and Bayern go in 2-0 up.

Many fans thought that the Russian international was in an offside position as Daley Blind was off the pitch...

Englishman Rashford has gotten on an even longer barren spell, going nine without netting, and also was annoyed by the Moscow goalkeeper, having a low shot and thumping drive pressed away.

United progressed as winners from Group A thanks to two goals in a minute from Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford, turning the tie with the Russians who led in the first half.

Incidentally, in both games he kept Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan - two natural No. 10s worth a combined £70 million - on the sidelines. Hit a lovely volley in the first-half that should've warranted a goal.

"It is a new rule", he told BT Sport.

"But I think it doesn't matter which team we get in the draw - I don't think that team will be jumping with happiness to play against us".

It is tight at the top of Group E, meaning Liverpool must gain at least a point at Spartak Moscow to be sure of qualifying or win to make top spot secure.

On first look, Dzagoev appears to be massively offside, which confused a fair few people who couldn't understand why the goal had been allowed to stand. Especially considering the Derby against Manchester City will be in only a few more days.

The presence of Shaw in the starting XI was the biggest surprise in this game, but the former Southampton left-back was up to the task. However, the big Belgian was his usual powerful and threatening self and finished smartly after latching onto Paul Pogba's through-ball.

Robert Lewandowski got Bayern Munich off to a flying start and Corentin Tolisso doubled the German club's lead before the break. This time, though, it should not be a surprise.
