Mourinho without midfield trio for CSKA Moscow trip

Matic Fellaini

Manchester United will look to take six points from two games while the Russian side will hope to do the same after they grabbed a shock win at the Estádio da Luz against Portuguese Champions Benfica. United head into the game unbeaten in their last eight games with the latter being a 1-0-win over Southampton at the St Mary's.

Throughout last season's successful UEFA Europa League campaign, Micki scored in four troublesome away ties at Zorya Luhansk in Ukraine, Saint-Etienne in France, FC Rostov in Russian Federation and Anderlecht in Belgium.

"Manchester United" this season is a formidable force, which in most matches is not just won, but defeated rivals.

Carrick is also injured, while defender Phil Jones can play after a European suspension - but will not feature.

Speaking to the media ahead of the clash, Mourinho lamented on the fact that there's not much comfort in terms of alternative options.

"I think there is an episode in the first half (against Southampton) that could transform a game (Fellaini injury) because we are winning one-nil when that happened because we could have controlled game easily, in the second half we have to be humble".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has called for a "balanced" performance from his side as they prepare to face CSKA Moscow without three central midfielders.

"We don't have [Marouane] Fellaini, [Paul] Pogba or [Michael] Carrick", he told the press.

And on his thoughts on avoiding an FA ban after he was sent off in Manchester United's 1-0 win against Southampton, the two-time UEFA Champions League victor with FC Porto (2004) and Inter Milan (2009) said:"If I am not punished it is because there were no reasons for the sending off".

"After Crystal Palace, there is the global break and Belgium was the first team to qualify (for the 2018 World Cup), so (they are) not even under pressure for a special big match".

Manchester Utd have won only one of their last 10 Champions League away games (D4 L5), it was against Bayer Leverkusen in November 2013 (5-0). While United have a lot of strong qualities, in any game against any opponent, we can change the course of the game. For Ander Herrera at least, those two injuries should at least mean more game time. "If I speak good, I motivate them".
