The draw Man Utd were hoping for
Manchester United avoided all the big hitters in the Champions League draw and they will fancy their chances of making progress after being placed in Group B alongside PSV Eindhoven, CSKA Moscow and Wolfsburg.
Even though United boss Louis van Gaal claimed he top teams in Pot 1 would have been keen to avoid United, he will be delighted to have side-stepped early meetings with defending champions Barcelona and German giants Bayern Munich.
The trip to Eindhoven will see Memphis Depay make a swift return to the club he left to join United earlier this summer, while games against CSKA Moscow German side Wolfsburg - who are likely to be without Man City transfer target Kevin De Bruyne - should ease offer them a passage to the last 16.
United will be in action on the first night of Champions League action, as they will take on PSV in Eindhoven:
