Valencia gives United win

Published Add your comment

Antonio Valencia struck a late winner as Manchester United maintained their 100% record in Champions League Group B with a 1-0 win over CSKA Moscow.

Chances had been at a premium on the artificial surface of the Russian capital's Luzhniki Stadium - scene of United's final victory in 2008 - but United finished strongly.

Valencia, who celebrated his first United goal last weekend, doubled his tally for the club five minutes from time, just moments after rattling the crossbar with a fierce drive.
