Man Utd face midfield blow as Mourinho confirms triple absence

Jose Mourinho responds to questions surrounding a controversial chant about Romelu Lukaku at Southampton.

CSKA Moscow are hopeful Mario Fernandes will fit be to start against Manchester United in their Champions League clash on Wednesday (27 September).

The player will not take part in tomorrow's game, having picked up an injury, but said the trip to Moscow did throw up the opportunity to reconnect with his Russian following from the Armenian diaspora.

The Belgian has been in red-hot form since his big money move from Everton and has subsequently racked up six goals in six games in the Premier League, scoring eight in eight in all competition.

Lukaku could have completed his hat-trick after more great skill by Martial but while his shot carried power it was straight at Akinfeev who was able to keep it out. After, I watched it on television - no camera for Craig - and he made that decision, so decision made.

"We don't have Fellaini, we don't have Pogba, we don't have Carrick".

Jose Mourinho has assembled a powerful, star-studded squad that poses a threat from many areas of the pitch.

"We try to focus on the globality and we try to have a team with quality, balance, to try and win the match, which is our objective".

Harry added that based on various sources, it was found that 59,820 people, who live in areas affected by the Mt. Evacuees are now living in temporary shelters: sports centres, village halls or even with relatives or friends.


"If I'm not punished, its because there were no reasons for the sending off and I'm happy I can do my work normally against Crystal Palace". Marouane Fellaini, moreover, suffered an ankle injury in the weekend's victory.

"Fellaini is one type [of player]".

I would expect a few changes from Viktor Goncharenko especially after the tough game his side had at the hands of Dynamo Moscow. "That's enough for me", he added.

Going into Matchday 2 as the table topper, albeit on goal difference, Manchester United will start favourite as it travels to Russian Federation to face CSKA Moscow on the back of an impressive vicotry over FC Basel.

At least Mourinho can call upon Nemanja Matic.

"For me, it is very, very important because I've always dreamed of playing in the Champions League but I have only made the Europa League until now".

Both were also left out of the win over Basle at Old Trafford a fortnight ago but have started every Premier League game so far.

"CSKA with Real Madrid, with Inter (Milan), with Chelsea, now with Manchester United".
