BLEARY-EYED Manchester United returned from Moscow at 4am this morning - and were still greeted by fans at the airport.

 Jose Mourinho,   carrying his favourite red travel pillow, saw his squad pick up another impressive victory against CSKA Moscow,  their fifth in a row and eighth in the last nine.

Romelu Lukaku poses with a fan at 4am after the Manchester United squad returned from Moscow.

Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were all on target in a 4-1 win for the Premier League's second-placed side.
But with the visit of Crystal Palace on Saturday, and rivals Manchester City and Chelsea showing strong early form, the Special One knows there is no time to lose.
Speaking ahead of the match he'd mentioned his team's fixture pile-up.
He said: "We have a game on Saturday. Liverpool are luckier than us, they play Tuesday and Sunday, we have to play on Wednesday and on Saturday at 3pm."
Mourinho's side got the first available flight out of Moscow and after a four-hour return journey, landed at 4am at Manchester Airport.
A tired-looking Lukaku, who has scored in every game but one since joining United, even stopped to pose with a fan.
