United handed boost by Champions League draw

9985Manchester United can count themselves moderately satisfied after been drawn with PSV Eindhoven, CSKA Moscow and Wolfsburg in Group B of the 2015-16 Champions League.

After beating Club Brugge 7-1 on aggregate, the Reds made their return to the group stage after a season-long absence.

Memphis Depay returns to face his former club after leaving the Dutch giants earlier this summer, although it is not the first time United and PSV are pitted against each other in the competition, as they met in the first group stage of the 2000-01 Champions League, with United winning 3-1 at Old Trafford and losing by the same scoreline in Holland.

United met CSKA Moscow in the group stage in 2009-10, drawing 3-3 at Old Trafford and winning 1-0 in Moscow. In the same season, United also faced Wolfsburg in the group, winning 2-1 at home and clinching a 3-1 away courtesy of a Michael Owen hat-trick.
