Louis van Gaal was pleased, but mainly relieved, with the win over CSKA. Van Gaal was rightly booed at half time, and also for taking Anthony Martial off for Marouane Fellaini halfway through the second half, but was saved by Wayne Rooney's first goal in 404 minutes. The quotes are in the Guardian.

In the Mirror, there's a story that Andreas Pereira wants to win a first team place at Manchester United but accepts, like Adnan Januzaj, that he may have to leave on loan to get some more experience. There's no obvious place for him in the first team now that Jesse Lingard appears to have established himself on the left.

Paul Scholes has decided - of course with absolutely no encouragement from his pal Ryan Giggs - to start slaughtering Van Gaal in the media, all the while making excuses for Wayne Rooney's performances of late. It's as if Rooney is the vehicle for Giggs, Scholes and the rest of the Class of 92 to plan something. It is impossible to know what that might be. That's in the Mail.

In the Manchester Evening News, there's a decent recap of the match, and the booing, which will get you up to speed.

And in the Telegraph's transfer rumour round-up, United have been again linked with Besiktas striker Mario Gomez. Paul Scholes won't be happy.
