CSKA Moscow vs Manchester United: We have to be humble - Mourinho

Manchester United travel to Moscow for their second Champions League Group A match of the season following their 3-0 home win over FC Basel.

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Marouane Fellaini will return from injury earlier than expected after being ruled out of Manchester United's trip to CSKA Moscow on Wednesday.

That will be no easy task considering that Manchester United have won seven of last eight games in all competitions, and they can now be backed at 25/1 special odds to win at VEB Arena in Moscow.

Jose Mourinho has already lost midfielder Paul Pogba to a hamstring injury, and now his replacement, Fellaini, has also checked his name into the club's injury list.

"We try not to focus on individual battles or specific areas on the pitch".

"He's not under pressure in a big match for Belgium so I hope he'll be back with us", Mourinho said.




I think CSKA will be very aggressive and, while United can look after themselves, it will unsettle their rhythm and it might take a while for them to get going, especially without Pogba or Fellaini.

Fellaini will miss the Premier League game against Crystal Palace on Saturday, but could be ready two weeks after that for the league game against Liverpool. "I don't expect him (Fellaini) to be out for a long time, we have the worldwide break after Saturday's game with Crystal Palace so I hope he can be back with us soon".

There is a time and a place for what José Mourinho calls "PlayStation football".

Fellaini, 29, has been in the form of his life this season after a strong start, finding the net against Leicester and Basel. "If I speak bad, I motivate them".

He said: "I always like to be back here because it is a attractive city - every time I come it's better and better - so I have to say that it's a pleasure. I'll try to score and make them happy", said the midfielder.

Eric Bailly is once again available after his three-game ban from last season's Europa League, though Phil Jones is suspended.
