UCL: Man Utd To Play Without Fellaini, Pogba & Carrick
Jose Mourinho will have an early test of his player transfer preferences when Manchester United take on CSKA Moscow.
"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", Mourinho said in a pre-match interview.
Fellaini has a damaged ankle after a Shane Long challenge in last Saturday's Premier League victory at Southampton.
Pogba has not played since a Champions League win over Basel on 12 September because of a hamstring problem.
Carrick is also injured, while defender Phil Jones can play after a European suspension - but will not feature.
United, unbeaten in eight games this season, and CSKA both won their opening Group A games.
While the Red Devils were beating Basel 3-0 at Old Trafford, the Russians won 2-1 away to Benfica in Portugal.
In the meantime, Mourinho has described Fellaini as 'lucky' insisting that his injury could have been much worse.
However, the Belgian is expected back in action "soon".
