Confirmed: Manchester Utd v CSKA Moscow line-ups: Rooney keeps place, Depay a substitute

Old Trafford

Manchester United host CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.

Manchester United host CSKA Moscow in the Champions League this evening, hoping to bounce back from a poor recent run.

The Red Devils have failed to score in any of their last three games, against Manchester City, Middlesbrough, and Crystal Palace.

Disappointingly two of those were at Old Trafford, and pressure is building on manager Louis van Gaal and captain Wayne Rooney to get it right.

Their record in the Champions League this season is mixed, with four points from three games.

They drew with CSKA Moscow in their last match over in Russia. Their only victory so far came at home to Wolfsburg, and they will be hoping home advantage proves telling once again on this occasion.

The last time CSKA Moscow visited Old Trafford was in 2009, when they came away with a 3-3 draw.

United's goals that night were scored by Michael Owen, Paul Scholes and Antonio Valencia, with Federico Macheda and Fabio da Silva among the starters.

Here is a look at how the two teams line up this evening...
