Manchester United’s players have an opportunity to put their recent woes behind them when CSKA Moscow visit on Tuesday night.
After a 1-1 in Moscow for the last UEFA Champions League group stage, both teams are tentatively poised in the group and know that three points will go a long way towards securing qualification.
A loss for Man United would be a huge blow, least not for the fact that it would continue the terrible recent run of results and United’s players are exciting about the upcoming game:

If the worst happens and United don’t get three points against Moscow, then there will be some increasing pressure on both Louis van Gaal and the players because the current situation simply isn’t good enough.
However, three points will go some way to helping fans forget about the last few weeks and put them in the past.
