Following the fine away win in Moscow, a win that has taken Manchester United a giant step towards qualifying for the knockout stages, we`ve assembled a few fascinating facts for you to mull over.

? The win last night, qualifiers aside, was Manchester United`s first win, away from home, in the Champions League since November 2013 when Bayer Leverkusen were beaten 5-0.

? Romelu Lukaku has followed in the footsteps of Dimitar Berbatov by becoming only the second player to score in their first two Champions League fixtures for the club.

? Anthony Martial is in the middle of a purple patch, the Frenchman has now been involved in 6 goals in his last 3 appearances for Manchester United, with 3 goals and 3 assists. He has also scored and assisted in each of his last 2 appearances.

? By a strange quirk of fate, both Manchester clubs have opened up 3-0 leads in away matches in the Champions League this season, inside the first half-hour, United last night and City against Feyenoord.

? Last night was the first time that CSKA Moscow had conceded 4 goals at home, in a European fixture, in their entire history.

? If you add together the scores in his last 2 Champions League away games, the score is 8-1, 4-1 last night and 4-0 against Maccabi Tel Aviv whilst in charge of Chelsea in November 2015.
