Manchester United will look to take six points from two games while the Russian side will hope to do the same after they grabbed a shock win at the Estádio da Luz against Portuguese Champions Benfica.

Fans of Russia's Spartak and CSKA football clubs will conduct a Gentlefan welcoming event for their United Kingdom counterparts who come to Moscow to watch UEFA Champions league group stage matches, according to the Russian Football Union website.

Both games in Russian Federation have ended in draws but at Old Trafford United have ran out winners with the most recent meeting in the 2015/16 ending in a 1-0 win for United with Wayne Rooney scoring the victor.

"The game of my life was last season's Europa League final", he said. Phil Jones and Antonio Valencia are also set to miss the trip against CSKA though they are not injured.

For Manchester United, this is a massive fixture - where a win could mean a huge step towards progression to the knockout rounds, which as Mourinho described, is the "bare minimum" this campaign, in Europe's Premier competition. He was calm and so much in control, he had a great performance.

"There are three midfielders that we lose for this match, so the solutions are not many".

Fellaini has a damaged ankle after a Shane Long challenge in last Saturday's Premier League victory at Southampton. "We are going to have a team with quality, with balance and to try to win the match which is our objective".

"After Alex Ferguson's legacy, this current version of Manchester United is without any doubt the strongest team", he said ahead of the clash in the Russian capital.

For this United side, they'll once again be without star Paul Pogba. "After Crystal Palace there is an global break and Belgium, having already qualified for the World Cup, he's not under pressure for a special big match for them, so hopefully he'll be back for us".

United are unbeaten in four past encounters against CSKA with two wins and two draws.

If United start slowly, CSKA can easily come out with at least a point from the game with the side they have. "I have started very well and will do my best to carry on".

Lukaku headed in the opening goal off Anthony Martial's cross after just four minutes to continue his free-scoring start to life at United, while Martial got his name on the scoresheet with a penalty kick.
