Henrikh Mkhitaryan was chosen as the Manchester United player to meet the media ahead of the Red Devils UEFA Champions League group stage clash at CSKA Moscow.

But who could start for Manchester United?

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.

But Mkhitaryan is the only member of that quintet to have started all six of United's league games to date and with Paul Pogba currently injured, his creativity is now even more important to manager Jose Mourinho. "We are going to have a team with quality, with balance and to try to win the match which is our objective".

Mourinho did not, however, round on the referee, saying that he had been watching on television, a luxury Craig Pawson did not have. He was so calm, so much in control.

Manchester United are fuming over a tackle that has ruled Marouane Fellaini out of their Champions League trip to Moscow.

ABC News confirmed 68-year-old Linda Bush was shot in the knee. "I'm a Christian, and I felt the hand of God touching me". Nashville Metro police spokesman Don Aaron said emergency calls came in around 11:15 services were letting out.

Mourinho, who led United to Rostov in last year's Europa League competition, has faced CSKA when in charge of Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid and said it was a "pleasure" to make another trip to Russian Federation.

Mourinho, in true fashion, then delayed his sending off by shaking the hands of every member of Southampton's coaching staff before he took his place in the stands for the final few seconds of the game. "I have started very well and will do my best to carry on".

Given those comments the Belgian will be missed in Moscow on Wednesday as Manchester United look to extend their lead on top of group A.

He said: "I don't want to scare anyone but I warn those who plan to come here not to support their side and see the country but to commit hooliganism: The law is the same for all, not just for Russians".

Eric Bailly is once again available after his three-game ban from last season's Europa League, though Phil Jones is suspended. "They have a lot of experience in their team".
