Ferdinand explains why Mourinho has had to axe Mkhitaryan

Roy Keane predicts Manchester United are ready to challenge for Champions League glory this season

United have reached the knockout stages in 16 of their previous 20 Champions League appearances and even if they lose in Switzerland, they will still qualify with a game to spare if CSKA fail to beat Benfica.

"I think at United right now we have a fantastic squad", he added.

"Normally, he is going to play, and I would say it will be a little bit more comfortable for him to play a bit more than he did the last match".

United have not lost in Europe in 2017-18 and have scored 10 goals in four games and conceding just once. Mkhitaryan also was among the Man United team heading to this game.

Sergio Romero was handed his first Champions League start this season under Jose Mourinho It shows my confidence in the players.

United will be without Phil Jones as he's been ruled out for at least another two games after sustaining a thigh injury while on worldwide duty with England earlier this month.




The Portuguese boss also joked he hopes Gareth Southgate won't recall the United defender for future internationals after he was surprisingly omitted for the recent friendlies against German and Brazil.

"In some positions where you don't have injuries, you don't have options, and always the same players are playing, in the midfield it was the same a bit. We play Brighton in two days I need to give some players a rest and I need to give some players a chance".

"If the team is not winning, his presence on the pitch will be important and it will be positive for him to play with (Romelu) Lukaku". Now the question is why is Micki not playing.

"Many times the tags in football are needed from a journalistic standpoint but they don't reflect the truth, like in Mourinho's case".

"Pogba's such a huge player in terms of creativity". The local injections before the match, we were not informed (about).
