Henrikh Mkhitaryan Vows To Bring Consistency To Manchester United

Jose Mourinho

United, unbeaten this season and level on points with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, started their Champions League campaign with a 3-0 win over Basel at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils travel to Russian Federation without several key members, especially in midfield, but the English Premier League side will still start as the favorite to pick up all three points on Match Day 2. They played their last game against the Saints on Saturday and kept it tight to win it 1-0.

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.

Golvin's presence was clearly sorely missed in the derby with the majority of CSKA's attack's subsequently very slow and unthreatening throughout the game.

Here's a look at three key battles which will shape the game's outcome.

The game was not a classic by any means for CSKA. But sadly, Mario Fernandes sustained a concussion during the match and won't available for Wednesday's game against ManU. CSKA has to give everything they can to stop United and to let them take all three crucial points.

Having opened up Group A with a comfortable 3-0 victory against Basel, Jose Mourinho's men have made the long journey east to face another side looking to build on a winning start.

The second half was a different story, however, and the Saints got more involved in the game, applying pressure and creating good openings. In the early stages of the game he got down well to his right to push away a low-driven shot from Dzagoev which had set a course for the bottom left-hand corner.

After initially struggling to get a game following his £30 million move to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund a year ago, Mkhitaryan has started the season as a regular in Mourinho's team. But I don't expect Fellaini to be out for a long time.

The Betfair Layers are favouring the under in this market and I have to agree with them.

"It's quite hard to argue because Alex Ferguson has created so many versions of strong Manchester United [teams]". He was so calm, so much in control.

Carrick is also injured, while defender Phil Jones can play after a European suspension - but will not feature.
