Jose Mourinho reveals Phil Jones will miss CSKA Moscow Champions League clash

Last weekend CSKA drew 0-0 away at Dinamo Moscow.

CSKA Moscow are expecting a tough Champions League battle against what head coach Viktor Goncharenko believes is the best Manchester United side since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

Fellaini, for the record, completed the 90 minutes in Man United's win over the Saints. All winnings paid as free bets.

Jose Mourinho's current squad is the strongest Manchester United have had since the departure of Alex Ferguson, according to the manager who hopes to plot their downfall on Wednesday.

"Let me make it clear that normally we bring players here that are starting the match the next day", the boss said.

In a statement on the club's website on Monday, United said: "All supporters must use the official bus service provided, and we ask that you ensure your behaviour is impeccable at all times".

United boss Jose Mourinho said Fellaini's injury "could have been much worse" but expects the Belgium global to be back in action soon. "Yes, we need to go into matches thinking we can dominate but we also have to accept the reality of high-level football and be humble when the opponent is on top".

Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini and Paul Pogba are all missing for the Premier League team as they attempt to record their second successive victory in the Champions League group stages.

Russian Premier League runners-up in 2016/17, CSKA won two of their first three home games against English clubs, but none of the last five (D2 L3). "In the beginning of last season, if he understood me better, then he would have started better".

A few outlets are running the story that the Belgian midfielder hurt his ankle against Southampton, and has not traveled to Russian Federation for Wednesday's Champions League group stage game against CSKA Moscow.

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.
