    Mourinho also adds: "I think it's the best CSKA that I'm going to play against."

    Makes a nice change from the usual defensive injury crisis.

    He is not available either. Ander is!


    Jose: "Matches away from home are even more difficult and of course we need the best of our players."

    Fellaini is injured, Shane Long's tackle.

    Not sure about Carrick.

    "And we will give him time but also opportunities but just time and no opportunity the evolution gets slower. He needs time and no pressure. The fact he played against Basel and in future he will have more opporutnity to play he will improve step by step."

    Mourinho on Mkhitaryan
    Mkhitaryan will face the media but Mourinho’s made that clear it doesn’t mean anything about his team selection:

    First of all let me make clear normally we bring players that are starting the match the next day.

    I’m trying to make life easier for all of you, I’m not saying Mkhitaryan starts the match tomorrow, maybe he does, maybe he doesn’t. He played well last season in the Europa League but last season was last season this one is another story and we need him to perform well again. Champions League is a different level. Matches are even more difficult of course we need the best of our players.

    Mourinho's sending off
    Here’s what he has to say about his sending off at the weekend:

    If I am not punished it is because there was no reason for the sending off so I’m happy that was recognised and that I can be doing my work normally against Crystal Palace that’s enough for me.

    On CSKA
    Here’s what Mourinho said about tomorrow’s opponents:

    I have faced CSKA with Real Madrid, Chelsea and now with United. It is something in my Champions League career. I always like to be back it’s a beautiful city that gets better each time I come. It’s a pleasure.

    Opponents it’s the best CSKA I’m going to play against it’s the best team I face with CSKA as an opponent.

    Fellani injury update
    Mourinho confirms he will not play against Palace either.

    “He was lucky, it could have been a much worse situation.”


    How much will United miss Fellaini
    Mourinho was asked about the midfield battle with players missing:

    We don’t have Fellaini , Pogba, Carrick, all there players missing. The solutions are not many. But we try not to focus on individual matters or specific areaas on the pitch. We are going to have a team with quality and balance and try to win the match.

    Mourinho on the opposition
    Mourinho was asked about Vitinho:

    Are you his agent? No?

    I don’t like to speak about opponents because if I speak good I motivate them and if I speak bad I motivate them. I play many times against CSKA and I think this is the best CSKA.

    Tomorrow's game plan
    There will be a key to United’s winning:

    We cannot guarantee this line of success but the way to try to keep it is to do what we are doing.

    We try to play well and in some moments of the match if the opponent has moment of superiority we have to be humble like against Southampton and to cope with the difficult moments of the game. Looking at Southampton on tv with time there is in the first half that could transform the easy game because we were winning 1-0 when that happened and we could win the game easily.

    But then in the second half we have to be humble. We had to fight hard. It’s a mixture of our quality and being dominant and respect.

    Mkhitaryan up next
    Quite often the player Mourinho picks indicates they will be starting but Mourinho was quick to clarify he’s chosen him to make it easier for journalists because he speaks Russian.



    I'm pretty sure he will play tomorow.

    And A.Pereira lost his place in Valencia to Guedes in the last two games and they're performing well.

    Mkhitaryan's support
    He’s looking forward to it:

    Last season, there were a lot of Armenian fans in the crowd at the game in Rostov and I hope there will be the same again tomorrow, giving me and the team a hand.”
    --------
    Mkhitaryan on his European form
    Mkhitaryan asked about his improved form in Europe last season.

    I think that was last season. This season is different

    “I am working very hard in training, to be ready for Premier League games. I have started the season well and I am doing my best to help the team.”

    No one to blame but the player himself.

    Mourinho made it clear that he wanted to keep him in the squad. Andreas however was so eager to get regular game time, that he' thought it would be best to go on loan.

    So I guess it's Matić/Herrera in midfield for this one? To be fair I wouldn't mind giving Matić a rest against CP, don't think he'll be much needed anyway. Tuanzebe/McTominay to replace him?
