Martial produced a beautiful lofted cross into the box, where Lukaku rose highest to head the ball into the right side of the goal and beyond the goalkeeper, and United were in front. What a start for the Red Devils.To their credit, CSKA fought back and almost equalized shortly after, but Alan Dzagoev’s effort was brilliantly saved by David De Gea.Then on 13 minutes, Mkhitaryan had time and space inside the box after picking up a neat pass, but his shot towards the middle of the goal was easily saved by Igor Akinfeev. What a chance.Five minutes later, United increased their advantage as Martial stepped up to convert from the spot, after Mkhitaryan was felled by a CSKA defender. The Frenchman was having a brilliant start to the game and just capped it up with the goal.
