James Milner says that it is vital for Manchester City to grab back-to-back wins over CSKA Moscow in the Champions League over the next month.

James Milner believes that Manchester City need six points from their next two group games in order to keep their Champions League hopes alive.

The Premier League winners will face CSKA Moscow twice in a month with the first encounter being held behind closed doors in Russia this evening.

"It's important we win both games against CSKA – we haven't performed as well as we wanted to in the first two group games but it's still in our hands and we know we are capable of beating anyone so we have to make sure we do that starting by winning our next two games," Milner told the club's official website.

City have picked up just one point in Group E, with Bayern Munich and Roma sitting first and second in the table with six points and four points respectively.
