Stoke City v Manchester United - Premier League
Jose Mourinho will have a number of headaches

Manchester United started the 2017/18 season with a flying start. After their loss to Real Madrid in their Super Cup tie, United have won 6 games and drawn just one. However, their UEFA Champions League fixture tonight isn’t going to be an easy outing at the Russian capital against CSKA Moscow.

CSKA Moscow won a morale-boosting away tie against Benfica in the UEFA Champions League in the last group-stage fixture. Also, they are sitting at 4th place in the Russian Premier League.

Manchester United always had their difficulties in their away games at Russia.

Jose Mourinho will have to choose the playing 11 carefully, considering the fact that they have a Premier League game within just 3 days after the Champions League tie.
