KEY MOMENTS

10’ – CLOSE! Akinfeev comes flying off his line to prevent Martial from running on to Rooney’s pass. The ball cannons off the ‘keeper into the path of Rojo, who drives the ball off him for a corner. Fantastic intensity from the hosts.

15’ – CHANCE! Daley Blind lofts a pinpoint pass into the path of the onrushing Juan Mata, but the Spaniard cannot quite connect properly and Akinfeev gathers easily.

36’ – MISS! Great cross from Young picks out Rojo, six yards out at the back post, but he elects to lash the ball at goal, and slices wide.

47’ – CHANCE! Rooney whips a perfect corner into the middle, but Rojo can only head wide. Looked surprised it reached him.

71’ – MISS! Great play from Lingard, direct and with pace, plays in Mata, who turns back inside, plays it across to Rooney, but the skipper cannot convert. Tried to shuffle to his right foot and gave defender chance to clear.

75’ – CLOSE! Memphis’s cross is only half cleared, and Carrick lashes the ball just wide on the volley. Looked in from certain parts of the ground.

78’ – OFF THE LINE! Doumbia is through on goal, with just De Gea to beat but the Spanish stopper blocks brilliantly, Doumbia reacts to the rebound, fires powerfully at goal, but Smalling somehow flings himself at it to block wide.

79’ – GOAL! Manchester United 1-0 CSKA Moscow. Finally for United, finally for Rooney. The skipper heads in to break the deadlock and relieve the tension here at Old Trafford.
