Jose Mourinho is sent from the line by referee Craig Pawson

With Paul Pogba out with a hamstring injury, Fellaini had emerged as Mourinho's go-to man in central midfield, with the United boss having placed his faith and trust in the Belgium worldwide.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has called for a "balanced" performance from his side as they prepare to face CSKA Moscow without three central midfielders.

Paul Pogba suffered a hamstring injury against Basel.

"It's a hard situation for us, but I expect Fellaini not to be out for a long time". Then place a bet on Man Utd to win at the special price and that is it.

"For me Craig Pawson is one of the big refereeing talents in England", Mourinho told reporters at CSKA's VEB Arena on Tuesday.

I expect Conte to name the same team except Rudiger will come in for Cahill and Christensen will replace the suspended Luiz. It turns out that would be nearly 20 percent of their total points won, as the Sky Blues finished in third with 78 points.

Thus far, Fernandes has created two chances and played two key passes in the opening night's victory against Portuguese champions Benfica.

CSKA Moscow lie fourth in the Russian Premier League with six wins from 11 games but Mourinho believes they are "the best CSKA I am going to play against".

European defenders don't come much more experienced than CSKA's 35-year-old Berezutski twins, Vasilli and Alexei, and Romelu Lukaku will have to outmanoeuvre and outmuscle them to get his name on the score-sheet for the second Champions League game running.

It wasn't the most spectacular of games by any means, but Mourinho could not care less as his United side took all three points back up to Manchester.

You can catch CSKA Moscow vs. Manchester United LIVE on Wednesday at 2:30pm et/11:30am pt on TSN5 and TSN GO. "It is normal in my Champions League career".

"It is something normal in my Champions League career, to be honest I always like to be back because Moscow is a lovely city, so every time I come it's better and better and better so I have to say it's a pleasure", the Portuguese coach told reporters. It is probably true but this was another example of Jose Mourinho being ever so humble.
