Champions League: CSKA Moscow-Man Utd

Jose Mourinho's side head into the game unbeaten in their last eight, following Saturday's 1-0 win at Southampton. United have started both their domestic and European season strongly and Mourinho has at his disposal, probably the strongest Manchester United side there has been in the last four years - with a good mix of pace, power and a bit of stardust to go with it.

Michael Carrick is also missing and Fellaini would have been certain to start in Russian Federation.

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.

With Belgium already qualified for the World Cup, Mourinho hopes Fellaini will be rested during the global break next week.

Manchester United have traveled to Russian Federation for their Champions League game against CSKA Moscow without Marouane Fellaini, while 29-year old Nemanja Matic has made it to the squad that flew out on Monday. Midfielder Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Marcos Rojo remain sidelined as they are recovering from long-term injuries.

While talking to the press, Mourinho said, "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".

They are yet to taste defeat this season and boast a mean defence, having only conceded two goals. "My suspension has finished now and I am very happy". I'm also mildly concerned that they played Dinamo Moscow on Saturday and could only draw 0-0 - although it was away from home.

Fellaini has not recovered from an ankle injury he suffered in a tackle by Shane Long in the 1-0 Premier League win over Southampton on Saturday and was not in the squad which departed for Russian Federation on Monday.
