Mourinho Confirms Paul Pogba, Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini Will Miss Champions League Tie


Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed that the trio of Paul Pogba, Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini will miss their Champions League clash against CSKA Moscow.

The Red Devils will hope to continue in their impressive form in Europe and Premier League when they come up against the Russian opponents at the VEB Arena but Mourinho has revealed that they will be without Pogba, Fellaini and Carrick.

Pogba is still recuperating from his hamstring injury while Fellaini has an ankle problem and Carrick is also also a doubt due to his fitness issues.

Speaking ahead of their clash with CSKA Moscow, Jose Mourinho said Fellaini, Pogba or Carrick will not be present in their midfield set-up leaving them without too many solutions against their opponents.

The Portuguese boss then went on to insist that they still have quality and balance to win the game while he also criticized Shane Long for his challenge on Fellaini during the game against Southampton.

Manchester United still have the likes of Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera and Juan Mata to act as cover in the absence of the injured trio; however, the Red Devils are expected to have an easy game against CSKA Moscow due to the array of stars in their current squad.
