CSKA Moscow 4-0 Manchester United: Timothy Fosu-Mensah plays full 90 minutes

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United’s U19s suffered a very disappointing 4-0 defeat against CSKA to put them under real pressure in the UEFA Youth League.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah, 17, played the full 90 minutes in a more advanced midfield role, rather than in a defensive role which he has played more often than not this season, but he was overpowered by a dominant CSKA Moscow side who ran away with the game.

Fellow U21s regular Callum Gribbin also completed the entire match but in Marcus Rashford‘s absence, his quality in attack was blunted.

Nicky Butt will be bitterly disappointed as without their main centre-back and striker, United couldn’t compete with a rampant CSKA Moscow side.

We’re really excited about the development of Fosu-Mensah and how he’s developing at the moment which is why we’re taking a closer look to see how he’s getting along.

Next up for the U19s in the UEFA Youth League is a home game against CSKA Moscow and with only four points from the first three games, there’s pressure on them to pick up another much needed win.
