GAME PREVIEW Jose Mourinho Manchester UnitedManchester United have enough leeway to work with as the Champions League group stage closes for Jose Mourinho to pick a team with Sunday’s derby against Manchester City in mind.A home draw will be enough to see the Red Devils through as group winners, and that should not be an issue against a CSKA Moscow side with a few suspensions and injuries to deal with.Paul Pogba will start due to his upcoming suspension, but do not expect to see Nemanja Matic after the Serbian played through pain against Arsenal.The likes of Chris Smalling, Antonio Valencia, Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard could also use a break, while Ander Herrera may be held out so he can replace Pogba at the weekend.That could mean a rare opportunity for Luke Shaw and more first-team minutes for youngster Sean McTominay.Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not have the chance to step up his return, however, as the work he is doing to build up the muscles of his knee has forced him into a brief rest.last_img
