Fellaini injury leaves Jose Mourinho in the middle of a problem

Nemanja Matic

Manchester United will look to make it two wins from their opening two Champions League games when they take on CSKA Moscow in Russian Federation this evening.

Jose Mourinho has several roster issues to jostle as Manchester United brace themselves for a tricky away Champions League tie at CSKA Moscow.

United have dropped only two Premier League points and got their Champions League off to a winning start against Basle, but their manager said that there were no guarantees of continuing that kind of success and that humility was key.

"I won't have Fellaini, I won't have Pogba, we won't have Carrick, so all three midfield players that we lose for this match".

Manchester United will be without midfielders Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Paul Pogba for Wednesday's Champions League match at CSKA Moscow. "But it's not the first time I'm going to play in Champions League, I know how to deal with it, and I'm going to try to do my best to perform well as well", the Armenian added.

'It was a mixture of our quality and dominating like we do, but accepting when the opponent has a strong moment you have to cope with it'.

Both games in Russian Federation have ended in draws but at Old Trafford United have ran out winners with the most recent meeting in the 2015/16 ending in a 1-0 win for United with Wayne Rooney scoring the victor.

"He didn't say exactly names, but everyone thinks that they've done something bad or done some mistakes". "We are trying not to focus on individual battles in specific areas on the pitch".

Europa League winners Manchester United will go up against CSKA Moscow at the VEB Arena, in Moscow.

"We have a lot of experience and class", said the Belarusian, whose side are now fourth in the Russian Premier League.

Berezutski is strong in the air and an adept tackler, both of which will be vital traits against the Belgian who has made a phenomenal start to his United career, scoring eight times in eight games.

"This season is another story and we need him to perform. Hopefully he'll be back for us".

"I have started the season well and I am doing my best to help the team".

"I don't think his movement is unbelievable in the box, but when you're bigger and stronger than everyone else and you can get your arm across a shoulder like this and just nearly pin your defender down, it's not a foul, that's football".

In the other fixture, Swiss side Basel will aim to recover from its 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford as it hosts Portuguese champion Benfica, which also recorded a defeat (1-0) in the first game against CSKA.
