United reach UEFA Champions League Last 16

United boss Jose Mourinho admits the striker still needs more time to strengthen his knee

United boss Jose Mourinho admits the striker still needs more time to strengthen his knee

With the knockout stages of the showcase tournament not starting until 2018, the "Special One" says his focus is now turning back to domestic commitments, however, he expects that United will be an opponent no other Champions League team is hoping to draw.

Manchester United wrapped up top spot in UEFA Champions League Group A on Tuesday with a 2-1 victory over CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford.

Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford both scored.

Their club-record streak was threatened by CSKA late in the first half after Vitinho's shot from Mario Fernandes' cut-back struck team-mate Alan Dzagoev on its way into the net. At first glance, Dzagoev appeared offside, but replays showed he had been played on by Daley Blind, who had just slid off the pitch. Barca had already secured their place in the last 16 of the competition as Group D winners before the game. But with the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus and Bayern Munich in line to finish second, United might not find a benefit this season.

"Very, very positive performance, especially with the ball going forward", he said of Shaw.

"I forget it, because we only play in February and until then I have to concentrate on the English competition". No surprise that in minute 80 he's feeling the consequences of that intensity.

"I'm always happy with Romelu, because the way he plays for the team is absolutely wonderful", he told reporters after the match.

"It is normal, the first match of the season for him, but he was deserving of that opportunity for quite a long time".

The result left United top of the section on 15 points, three more than second-placed Basel and six ahead of third-placed CSKA who will carry on in the second-tier Europa League after the winter break.

"But I think it doesn't matter the team we get in the draw".
