Manchester United Walloped CSKA Moscow
Published on December 5, 2017
Manchester United recorded a dramatic win over CSKA Moscow thereby making the red devils the leader of the table with 15 points.
Two goals in two second-half minutes from Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford were enough to seal the three points for United, overturning Alan Dzagoev’s opener on the stroke of half-time for the visitors.
United started the game strongly and were on the front foot from the off, with Rashford latching onto a Lukaku ball and racing clear of the CSKA defence after just four minutes, only to see his low effort cannon back off the post.
The Reds’ best chance of the opening half came after 20 minutes, with Luke Shaw’s low volley stinging the palms of Russia international goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev, and an outstretching Lukaku unable to get enough on the rebound to convert from close range.
