Basel joined United in the next phase from Group A by downing Benfica 2-0.

Having also chipped in three goals in his 12 outings for United, there is no doubt that Pogba has turned into one of the most effective players in the United line-up as they fight on multiple fronts this season.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has praised his side for their determination to fight back from a goal down to defeat CSKA Moscow 2-1 on Tuesday and seal top spot in Group A of the UEFA Champions League.

"(Michael) Carrick no chance.

Mourinho joked Arsenal's medical team had performed an "amazing" feat by turning Lacazette "from a no to a complete 90 minutes".

Silva, meanwhile, was left out of City's squad for their Champions League game at Shakhtar Donetsk yesterday owing to an unspecified injury, with Guardiola saying he does not know if the Spaniard will be fit for the trip to Old Trafford.

Mourinho was also delighted with the performance with Luke Shaw and Sergio Romero. No surprise that in minute 80 he's feeling the consequences of that intensity.

Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford scored in a 66-second span for United, which became the third English team to finish top of its group.

"And he's going to get more because the performance was really positive".

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.

"The first impression for the first goal was offside but then we saw it was not".

'I am not the luckiest guy with draws, it is better I shut up and I forget it because we only play in February, ' he said. PSG will be the happier side at winning the group, although possible last-16 opponents for them are Chelsea, Juventus and Real Madrid."I am 50 percent happy and 50 percent disappointed", said their coach Unai Emery.Celtic, who lost 7-1 at PSG last time out, lost 1-0 at home to Anderlecht after a Jozo Simunovic own goal in the second half.

"We picked up some good experience from this Champions League campaign, especially for the young players".

"I am not playing for records, I want to make history because we won the Europa League for the first time and for doing more important things than breaking records".
