Roy Keane believes Manchester United have enough in their locker to beat CSKA Moscow in their final Champions League game at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils failed to convert their chances in Switzerland on Wednesday night after Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini hit the woodwork.

Manchester United were given a warning when Marcos Rojo required a last-ditch tackle to prevent Basel finding the net with 20 minutes to go.

However, Michael Lang made Manchester United pay the price for a sloppy second-half performance with an 89th-minute winner for Basel.

The Red Devils will still finish at the top of their Champions League group barring a disaster against CSKA Moscow in their final group-stage game.

Manchester United have struggled with consistency over the past month or so following a return of three victories in their last seven outings.

Former Manchester United captain Keane is tipping the Red Devils to beat CSKA Moscow and secure their spot in the last 16 with ease.

“The players are intelligent enough to know that the draw (in Basel) would have one them and they started dropping deeper,” Keane told ITV Sport.

“Basel grew in confidence and deserved it on the second half performance, but United were guilty a lot of chances. And it was a game they let slip, but they still have more than enough in their locker to win the last home game.”

Manchester United are looking to win the competition for the first time since 2008 when the Red Devils beat Chelsea on penalties in Moscow.

The Red Devils won the Europa League last term thanks to a 2-0 win against Dutch giant Ajax.
