PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEP! 

CSKA MOSCOW 1 - 4 MANCHESTER UNITED 

Well, that was as authoritarian a display as you'd ever see.... CSKA have their skipper, Igor Akinfeev, to thank for keeping this to 4 (it could well have been a cricket score were it not for the veteran. 

Mourinho won't be happy with the goal they conceded, but he will be supremely pleased with just how easily they controlled the game (besides CSKA's valiant, loud, supporters deserved atleast that much.)

That's all from me tonight, Anirudh Menon signing out. 

Toodle-ooo!
...
90' OOOH! Another Kuchaev run creates a flutter of panic in the United box; but it's just a corner... from which a hard Shennikov shot stings De Gea's palms but doesn't cause undue harm
...
Lovely, lovely goal from the 19-year-old CSKA academy product who skinned Smalling on the outside and smashed it hard and low past De Gea.
...
89' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! KONSTANTIN KUCHAEV!
...
88' Golovin smashes one at goal that almost turns into the perfect pass for Timur. Just beyond him, though. 

...
86' Lingard tries to jink his way into the CSKA box but he overruns the ball... United win back possession soon enough, though.... till Matic misplaces a pass (a rare, rare occurrence tonight)  and a promising move breaks down at the edge of the CSKA box.
...
85' Rashford tees up a freekick from thirty-five yards out in the Cristiano Ronaldo style. He sends it into orbit in the Cristiano Ronaldo style
...
84' Vitinho off for Kuchaev - as Goncharenko figures he might as well give his youngsters a run-out. 
...
83' OH HO! Herrera almoooost slips in Lukaku but the ball rolls a bit too ahead of the Belgian. At the other end, Vitinho smashes a more than decent effort straight at De Gea.
...
80' OH! AKINFEEV! HE IS THE REASON CSKA HAVEN'T CONCEDED IN DOUBLE FIGURES! Matic slips in a superb ball to Darmian who runs free into the box and smashes it at goal - only for the Russian custodian to work his magic. Poor, Poor, Igor!
...
79' In the other game of the match, Basel are schooling Benfica 5-0. I wouldn't want to be in Rui Vitoria's shoes when they have to host, and immediately after visit, this Manchester United side.
...
78' Oh Vitinho! The striker tries to dance his way past Smalling, but nothing doing there. Lukaku - tracking back in a manner that would only make his manager love him even more - and wins a foul off Fernandes
...
76' Pass... pass... pass... go United as they sentence CSKA to death by a thousand passes. None of these passes are useless backward ones though; Lingards' final one of the move wins a corner... from which Rashford whips in a lovely little ball that Berezutsky does ever so well to head away
...
74' OUCH! Clash of heads as Wernbloom heads Lingard in the back of his skull. THAT MUST HAVE HURT!
...
73' CSKA threaten... I use that in the loosest meaning of the word... down the right but Smalling can quite simply see off Timur and guide him out of play
...
71' The utterly magnificent Anthony Martial is taken off to give young Marcus Rashford twenty minutes against this creaking CSKA defence. The home side take off Dzagoev and bring on Milanov. 
...
70' Lukaku quite literally bullies Berezutsky off the ball, turns, charges into the box - but the giant is eventually crowded out by THREE other CSKA men.
...
69' Manchester United play the ball with quiet confidence and Lingard tries to find Lukaku with the freedom of the Kremlin in the box; but Berezutsky gets his bulky frame in the way. Finally. Nothing comes off the subsequent corner. 
...
67' Matteo Darmian comes on for Ashley Young while CSKA withdraw Chalov for Zhamaletdinov... whom I shall address as Timur from now on. I didn't make that name up, it's his first name... and I AM NOT TYPING OUT Z-H-A-M-A-L-E-T-D-I-N-O-V for the remaining twenty odd minutes, thank you very much
...
66' A CSKA SHOT AT GOAL! THIS IS NEWS! CAPITALISABLE NEWS! It's a horrible shank from Vitinho, though. 
...
64' A loose ball, the 1956th of the night for CSKA, and Martial tries to slip in Lukaku - but the ball is woefully underhit. Vitinho tries to catch Matic asleep at the other end, but this is not the home side's night, and the ball trickles into De Gea's gloves. 
...
63' United are passing the ball about in front of the CSKA box before Martial tries to twirl, seriously, TWIRL, his way past two CSKA men but Berezutsky is having none of that. 
...
61' Lukaku has the ball in the net.... but the whistle had long since gone for offside on the man who crossed it into the box - Eric Bailly. 
...
60' OH LINGARD! OH LINGARD! The Englishman's first touch is to parrry a magnificent Martial pass straight at Akinfeev from five yards. Yet another great save from the Russian veteran, but that should have been 5.
...
59' Vitinho backs into Bailly, Brazilian arm smashing into Ivorian jaw and that's a yellow for the CSKA man. Meanwhile, Mourinho gives Lingard a runout and takes off Mkhitaryan
