Confirmed: 20-man Manchester United squad travelling to CSKA Moscow

Old Trafford Statues

Manchester United have flown out to Moscow for their Champions League encounter.

Manchester United have flown out to Russia ahead of their Champions League clash with CSKA Moscow.

The Red Devils lost their first away game against PSV Eindhoven before bouncing back with a win at Old Trafford over Wolfsburg, and a win at CSKA would be a major step in their quest for qualification to the competition's group stages.

United flew out a 20 man squad to Russia, which included three goalkeepers.

Absent from the squad is Ashley Young, who has been left behind to deal with an existing injury.

The lack of depth at the back is evident, with just five defenders travelling, although Michael Carrick could step in to help out in an emergency as he has done so often before.

Andreas Pereira is again given the nod while Jesse Lingard's 45 minute cameo against Everton earns him a trip to Russia. There is no place in the party for young striker James Wilson, who was part of the squad which flew out to PSV last month.
