José Mourinho tells Manchester United playtime is over before tricky Moscow trip

Jose Mourinho insists his team will still have plenty of midfield quality for their Champions League clash against CSKA Moscow.

United controlled the second half for long periods, limiting the hosts to a tame volley held by Moutha-Sebtaoui and a chance that Roman Pukhov should have done much better with than head well wide of the target.

"It's a long trip with two hours of time difference that will demand a quick adjustment".

Jose Mourinho has warned the only way Manchester United will maintain their impressive start to the season is if they are humble enough to admit they are not good enough to dominate every game.

"We are trying to improve that aspect and be more focused for the whole game and not play some PlayStation in the last 20 or 25 minutes".

Paul Pogba is also still nursing a hamstring injury while Michael Carrick didn't travel to Russian Federation due to a knock so Ander Herrera should partner Nemanja Matic in the middle of the park.

Let's see the 5 things which will worry Manchester United the most ahead of their Champions League tie later tonight.

"We try to play well and in some moments of the match if they have some moments of superiority we have to be humble - as against Southampton - and cope with hard points of the game".

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

United fans will be taken to the stadium on official buses, which will pick them up from a designated hotel and then return them after the game is finished. I watch a lot of their games in the Russian Premier League.

Goncharenko is hopeful right-back Mario Fernandes will be fit to play after he was forced off with concussion in Saturday's 0-0 draw at Dynamo Moscow.

Manchester United Under-19s maintained a winning start in Europe on Wednesday afternoon, overcoming a less-than-perfect pitch to beat CSKA Moscow 2-1 and make it two victories from two games in the UEFA Youth League.

"You can't look at United or judge them compared to how they were 10 years ago, when we last won the Champions League".

However, Mourinho's men do have a few injury concerns and face a tricky test against a CSKA Moscow side that has already beaten Benfica in Lisbon.
