Anthony Martial rescued a point for Manchester United of England as they drew with CSKA Moscow in the Champions League in a laboured performance.

Seydou Doumbia gave CSKA the lead, reacting first after David de Gea saved Roman Eremenko’s penalty, awarded for a handball by Martial.

United improved after the break with Martial making up for his mistake by heading in Antonio Valencia’s cross.

They are now second in Group B as Wolfsburg beat PSV Eindhoven to go top.

Back in England, Kevin de Bruyne’s 91st-minute winner gave Manchester City a dramatic Champions League victory over Group D rivals Sevilla at The Ethihad.

The Spanish side had taken a deserved lead when Vitolo’s cross was turned in by the impressive Yevhen Konoplyanka.

City quickly equalised when Wilfried Bony’s close-range shot was deflected home off Adil Rami after good work by Yaya Toure.

Sevilla’s quick counter-attacks threatened more goals against a City side that were often caught wide open at the back.

But, for the second successive European game, Manuel Pellegrini’s men snatched three vital points in the dying seconds.

Yaya Toure charged forward in stoppage time and fed De Bruyne, who cut in from the right to score his fifth goal in his last seven games for City and send them into second place in the group.
