Romelu Lukaku

That was all rather easy for United in the end. Two wins from two, seven goals scored and just the one conceded in the Champions League. That will keep Jose happy.

Full-time scores:

CSKA Moscow 1-4 Manchester United
Basel 5-0 Benfica
Anderlecht 0-3 Celtic
Paris Saint-Germain 3-0 Bayern Munich
Juventus 2-0 Olympiakos
Sporting 0-1 Barcelona

Scott Sinclair seals a superb night in Brussels for Celtic! Another mix up at the back for Anderlecht frees the winger down the inside left channel and he sweeps the ball over the goalkeeper to score his 10th goal of the season.

Goal! Anderlecht 0-3 Celtic (Scott Sinclair, 89)

Full-time: CSKA Moscow 1-4 Manchester United

Oooh, Mourinho won't like that. Nor will David de Gea. CSKA have a deserved consolation with teenager Konstantin Kuchayev latching onto a fine ball from Golovkin to hammer past De Gea.

Goal! CSKA Moscow 1-4 Manchester United (Konstantin Kuchayev, 89)

Just a few minutes left across Europe now and things are effectively wrapped up everywhere but in Lisbon where Barcelona are clinging to a slender 1-0 lead over Sporting CP.

Neymar lets Cavani take a free-kick in Paris. Huge news.

Juventus can rest easy; they have their second. Again, Higuain is central, driving forward before prodding a fine ball through for countryman Dybala. He lifts his effort over the goalkeeper with an Olympiakos defender just about managing to hook it off the line, but only into the sturdy frame of Mandzukic who sees it home.

Goal! Juventus 2-0 Olympiakos (Mario Mandzukic, 80)

Goal! Basel 5-0 Benfica (Blás Riveros, 76)

And here is that change. Martial comes off with two assists and a goal to his name, leaving the pitch rather gingerly with Marcus Rashford onto replace him.

Martial, who has been incredible for United tonight, looked like he just signalled to Jose Mourinho to come off. An injury maybe?

Off the bench, Gonzalo Higuain breaks the deadlock in Turin! A magnificent first touch from Mandzukic frees Sandro down the left and he pings a ball across goal for the waiting Argentine. His first effort on goal is blocked, but he makes no mistake on the rebound.

Goal! Juventus 1-0 Olympiakos (Gonzalo Higuain, 69)

Goal! Basel 4-0 Benfica (Oberlin, 69)

More magic from Mbappe! The French sensation bewilders David Alaba after creeping inside the box from the right, dragging the ball away from the Austrian before teeing Neymar up for an easy finish.

Goal! Paris Saint-Germain 3-0 Bayern Munich (Neymar, 63)

Benfica's woeful start to this competition continues; not only are they three behind thanks to a penalty from Ricky van Wolfswinkel but now they are down to 10 men with André Almeida seeing red.

United aren't finish here. Martial again does brilliantly, terrorising the CSKA backline with a driving run before threading a pass into Lingard's feet but Akinfeev again reacts well to make the save.

United could have easily scored six or seven here.

Goal! Basel 3-0 Benfica (Ricky van Wolfswinkel, 60)

United pick up from where they left off. Martial pounces on a loose pass and races towards the CSKA box, smashing one on goal that Akinfeev does well to bat away. The home's side defence takes an age to react to the loose ball and it allows Mkhitaryan to race in ahead of them and tap home the rebound.

Goal! CSKA Moscow 0-4 Manchester United (Henrikh Mkhitaryan (56)

Barcelona have finally broken the deadlock in Lisbon and their goal is as ugly as they come, scrambled over the line from a yard out after Suarez's effort bounces off Sebastian Coates.

Goal! Anderlecht 0-2 Celtic (Patrick Roberts, 50)

Goal! Sporting 0-1 Barcelona (Luis Suarez, 48)

What a save from Akinfeev to deny Lukaku his hat-trick! It's excellent build up from United with Martial flicking it into the box towards the Belgian who takes a touch before pinging a half volley on goal, only to be denied by the Russian.

And we are back underway across Europe.

It's been a walk in the park so far for United tonight; this man has two already to make it 10 goals in nine games this season.

Romelu Lukaku

Half-time scores:

CSKA Moscow 0-3 Manchester United

Anderlecht 0-1 Celtic
Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 Bayern Munich

Half-time: CSKA Moscow 0-3 Manchester United

Half-time is almost upon us in Moscow and United are cruising.

Celtic break the deadlock in Brussels! Ntcham frees Tierney brilliantly down the left and the young full-back slides a perfect ball across goal for Griffiths to hammer home at the far post.

Goal! Anderlecht 0-1 Celtic (Leigh Griffiths, 38)

What a save from De Gea! Chalov does brilliantly, jinking between two challenges inside the box before lashing one on goal from 12 yards out, but the Spaniard somehow manages to push it over the bar.

Lukaku close to a third! He takes aim from range and almost sneaks one inside the near post, but Akinfeev reacts well to push it wide.

PSG double their lead! It's superb from Mbappe who races down the inside right channel before spinning in behind Sule inside the box. He keeps his balance superbly and slides a pass into the path of Cavani who hammers a wonderful effort into the top corner from range.

Goal! Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 Bayern Munich (Edinson Cavani, 31)

Lukaku doubles his tally on the night, and he won't score many more easier than that. Martial, under no pressure out on the left, is able to whip in a cross that Berezutski completely misses. Lukaku is on his toes and nips across for a simple tap in.

Goal! CSKA Moscow 0-3 Manchester United (Romelu Lukaku, 27)

A woeful first touch from Neymar!? Yes, it's possible. PSG have been under the kosh the last 10 minutes but on the break Cavani is able to thread a fine ball through for the Brazilian but his touch lets him down and the ball dribbles through to the goalkeeper.

Just as United make it two in Moscow, Basel double their lead at home to Benfica. It's a sublime counter attacking goal, breaking from a corner kick up the other end with 19-year-old Oberlin providing the finishing touch.

Goal! FC Basel 2-0 Benfica (Dimitri Oberlin, 20)

Anthony Martial strolls up and confidently sends Akinfeel the wrong way, stroking home into the right corner.

Goal! CSKA Moscow 0-2 Manchester United (Anthony Martial, 18)

Penalty to United! It's a very clumsy one from Schennikov, he slides in on Mkhitaryan and it's an easy decision for the referee.

PENALTY - Manchester United

Akinfeev denies United a second! Mkhitaryan finds the overlapping run of Blind on the left and races into the box to receive the return ball, hitting a first time effort on goal but it is kept out.

United are looking rather slick at the minute. Matic brilliantly finds Lukaku from deep with the Belgian showing nifty footwork to nip inside two men and find Martial. He takes aim from the edge of the box but settles for his side's first corner of the match.

PSG have also taken the lead with Neymar again at the heart of it, driving inside the box from the left and sliding a ball across to the onrushing Dani Alves, who hammers home from a tight angle. Slick move, but woeful marking from Bayern.

United break the deadlock inside four minutes! Romelu Lukaku shifts the ball out to Martial on the left and wanders into the box to wait for the cross. Martial's ball is an inviting one, but it is the way the Belgian dominated Ignashevich in the air that creates the chance, allowing him to head past Akinfeev to register his ninth in name games.

Goal! Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 Bayern Munich (Dani Alves, 3)

Goal! CSKA Moscow 0-1 Manchester United (Romelu Lukaku, 4)

Basel have the first goal of the evening! Flying full-back Michael Lang sweeps home a rebound after some poor goalkeeping from the Benfica goalkeeper.

Goal! Basel 1-0 Benfica (Michael Lang, 4)

And United get us underway in Moscow.

You can barely here the Champions League anthem over the booming noise coming from around the VEB Arena. CSKA traditionally reserve the number 12 shirt for their fans; for good reason on that evidence.

Just a few minutes until kick-off; we will have our eye across these five games over the next 90 minutes, bringing you all the goals as they go in.

Anderlecht vs Celtic

Manchester United starting XI

Here is how we have United lining up tonight. It's the first time we have seen Jose Mourinho start with three at the back, but the arrival of Victor Lindelof this summer suggested it was something we would see eventually. The Sweden international is still finding his feet at the club and will have the presence of Bailly and Smalling next to him to help him through tonight.

Manchester United have developed a habit for making things difficult for themselves in the group stages of European competitions, but making it two wins from two tonight would go some way in settling those old nerves. Research from bwin suggests United are 85% likely to progress to the round of 16 if they avoid defeat tonight – and a 53% chance of progressing as as group winners.

Here's how CSKA line up tonight.

But just incase your Russian is as terrible as ours, here it is in English.

CSKA team to face Manchester United: Akinfeev, Fernandes, Vasin, VBerezutskiy, Ignashevich, Shchennikov, Wernbloom, Golovin,Dzagoev,Chalov,Vitinho

Mario Fernandes, one of CSKA's most influential players on the right-side of their 3-5-2 formation, suffered a concussion during the weekend draw against Dinamo Moscow but he has been passed fit to start tonight.

Here we will be keeping our eye on the other five matches taking place across Europe tonight. Team news for those is coming your way.

If Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea is more your fancy this evening, we have all the action live from the Spanish capital right here.

Elsewhere in that group, Roma are leading Qarabag 2-1 in Azerbaijan with just five minutes remaining.

Jose Mourinho has made five changes to the side that beat Southampton at the weekend and has also tweaked his formation for a tough evening in Moscow tonight.
Ashley Young comes over to the right to replace Antonio Valencia, taking the armband from him too, with Daley Blind operating on the opposite flank.

Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof both come back into the side to join Eric Bailly in a back-three, protected by a formidable midfield duo of Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera.

Anthony Martial is given the nod ahead of Marcus Rashford tonight; he starts on the left behind Romelu Lukaku.

With Phil Jones left behind, Axel Tuanzebe is United's only cover at centre-half on the bench. Similarly, Scott McTominay is the only central midfield cover available should something go wrong.

Subs: Romero, Darmian, Tuanzebe, Mata, McTominay, Lingard, Rashford

BREAKING: Jose Mourinho starts with three at the back with Ashley Young captaining the side.

United have some half-decent memories of Moscow...

Team news: Manchester United

To help bolster the numbers, Scott McTominay and defender Axel Tuanzebe are both expected to feature on the United bench tonight.

With Valencia having not made the journey, who will captain United tonight? The right-back has worn the armband in each of United's six league matches this season, with club captain Michael Carrick not in the first-team picture at the moment. The veteran midfielder won't be involved tonight along with Paul Pogba, who captained the side against Basel before he was forced off with that injury.

Ander Herrera might be a popular shout after so many clamoured for him to be awarded the armband on a permanent basis last season. But Chris Smalling has been a regular option for Mourinho; he will also fancy his chances tonight with the England international set for a starting role in Moscow.

Team news: Manchester United

According to the Manchester Evening News, Antonio Valencia did not make the journey to Moscow. The Ecuador international was handed a rest in the 3-0 win over FC Basel in the opening group match and has been ever-present at right-back in the Premier League so it shouldn't come as too much as a surprise to see him rested tonight.

Team news: Manchester United

In all, Mourinho is without seven members of his first-team squad tonight – if you include long-term absentees Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo.

Paul Pogba remains sidelined with the hamstring issue that forced him off in the first half of an opening Group A victory over FC Basel earlier this month, while Marouane Fellaini sustained a blow to his left Achilles following a tackle from Shane Long during Saturday's 1-0 Premier League defeat of Southampton at St Mary's.

Mourinho confirmed at a press conference on Monday that Michael Carrick is also unavailable with Phil Jones also out of contention – although he did not specify what problem – if any – the centre-half has.

Marouane Fellaini

Jose Mourinho has a minor midfield crisis on his hands tonight with Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick joining Paul Pogba on the absentee list. While the presence of Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera in the starting XI tonight isn't the worst alternative imaginable, the lack of options behind those two is concerning.

A tricky evening away in Russia is tough enough without being without so many key players; you feel Jose would bite your hand off if a narrow 1-0 win was offered tonight.

United are unbeaten in eight games this season and with Crystal Palace at home looming this weekend, they will be confident of reaching double figures by the end of the week. But they will have to be wary of a CSKA side that shocked Benfica in the opening match of the group stage a fortnight ago.

Stick around, team news from Moscow and elsewhere in Europe is coming up shortly.
