Current Manchester United team 'strongest' in post-Ferguson era


"The solutions are not many", Mourinho told a news conference on Tuesday (September 26). Martial, cutting in from the left hand-side, whipped the ball in to the back post for the predatory Lukaku, who effortlessly brushed off his marker and nodded in the opener.

The trio of Marouane Fellaini, Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera are close to finalizing contract extensions with Manchester United, according to reports from Team Talk.

A day before, Mourinho had praised the current CSKA team as the best he'd seen from the Russian club, but the home side failed to live up to that billing. "They are all missing for this match".

Admittedly, United are yet to face any of the big boys, but you can't fail to be impressed by their results and manner of their performances.

However, Goncharenko does not expect Mourinho's men to be thrown off kilter by the absences. Atletico Madrid and Chelsea, vying for top spot in the group, will be keen to a void defeat and thus nearly certainly cancel each other out.

It will be a tough task for CSKA to deal with United while they're playing in this kind of form. Indeed, tonight was certainly a step forward for the defender who looked far more composed and assured than he did in his last outing for United against Basel.

Mourinho's side may prove hard to beat on Wednesday, though.

I do not speak about opposition players because if I speak well about them, I motivate them. Under 2.5 goals is [1.82] and Over 2.5 goals is [2.18].

Martial had slotted home a penalty in between Lukaku's goals and Henrikh Mkhitaryan added a fourth in the second half to give United a maximum six points from their opening two matches. Ashley Young has started three of the last four games and could be rested.

The Armenia global 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.
