Mourinho hopes Fellaini recovers in 2 weeks for Man United

The Belgian has not recovered from ankle damage he suffered stemming from a tackle by Shane Long in the 1-0 win over Southampton on Saturday, and he has not travelled with the squad out to Russian Federation for the group stage game as a result.

United will be without Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick, leaving Mourinho with Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera as the only experienced central midfielders available for the game on Wednesday.

With two of his star players sidelined, we're expecting Jose Mourinho to name a makeshift midfield and play in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

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.

"I thought the referee Craig Pawson had a great game", he said. When I was looking at that game again on television, there was a moment in that match that could have transformed the game completely. With regards to Rashford, on the other hand, Mourinho wants to give the England worldwide a deal which conforms to his new standing among the Red Devils. "There is no pressure on him [in the global break] so hopefully be back for us". "If the opponents have superiority, we have to be humble, like we were at Southampton". "He had an awesome game in my opinion". The Belgian played on, after all, and has experienced the painful vicissitudes of Premier League life on many occasions. "They have a lot of experienced players but there's a big difference from the Champions League and the Russian league so they will be playing differently". Late in the first half, Saints striker Shane Long appeared to stomp on the back of Fellaini's left heel.

Fellaini has been Pogba's replacement in midfield since the France worldwide was forced off in United's first Champions League game of the season against Basel.

And he also made it clear that United were not simply making up the numbers in this season's Champions League.

"We are trying to improve that aspect and stay more focused during the whole game and not be doing fantasy football or PlayStation, as he said, in the last 25 minutes".
