Manchester United 2-1 CSKA Moscow: Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford quickfire goals see through Manchester United into Champions League last 16

Manchester United came from behind to secure their place in the last 16 of the Champions league. With this win, the unbeaten run of Manchester United extends to 40 games.

CSKA Moscow had taken the lead with a controversial goal on the stroke of half-time as Vitinho's shot was diverted into the net by Alan Dzagoev. Manchester United's defenders appealed for offside, but replays suggested the officials made the right decision as Daley Blind - who had slid off the pitch - was deemed to be playing him onside.

However Manchester United’s turnaround — two goals in 65 seconds just beyond the hour — was quite beautiful in its execution and it was the impact on preparations for Manchester City, four days away, which consumed every Manchester United supporters mind.

Manchester United topped Group A ahead of Basel, who clinched second place with a 2-0 victory over Benfica in Lisbon.
