All times stated are UK

  1. That's it from Moscow

    Mourinho's press conference is over

    So there you have it.

    Mourinho in philosophical mood ahead of the CSKA game on Wednesday.

    He sounds confident he can find a way to overcome his midfield injury list.

    Thanks for sticking with us.

    We'll have more live coverage of tonight's Champions League fixtures here from 6:30pm.

  2. Pawson not to blame

    Mourino refuses to blame the ref for Fellaini absence

    Here's Jose Mourinho addressing that incident when ref Craig Pawson failed to punish Shane Long for a foul on Fellaini

    He said: "There is no camera for Craig and he made that decision...

    "But in the moment when we don't have Pogba and Carrick, Marouane becomes even more important than he always is. Not having him tomorrow is a difficult situation for us but I don't expect him to be out for a long time."

    Mourinho then adds that Fellaini could be back after the international break.

  3. Fellaini update

    Jose Mourinho provides an update on Marouane Fellaini, who suffered an ankle injury during the Southampton win.

    "Fellaini was lucky. It could be a much worse situation but in a moment where we don't have Pogba and Carrick he becomes even more important than he always is. I expect Fellaini not to be out for a long time."

  4. Humble Devils

    Mourinho on learning the lessons from Southampton win

    "Looking at the Southampton game on TV with time I think there is an episode in the first half that could transform the game. We could then be in control and win the game easily.

    "But in the second half we had to be humble, accept the opponent was on a high and fight hard.

    "We have to accept the reality of high level football and cope when the opponent has a strong moment."

    Wonder if he means the Fellaini flash-point?

  5. No clues on team selection

    Mourinho says Henrikh Mkhitaryan here for his Russian

    Henrikh Mkhitaryan will also answer questions before the media today.

    But his manager insists that we shouldn't read too much into that.

    He said: "I'm not saying he starts the match. The reason he comes is because I want to make life easier for you. He speaks Russian.

    "You're right he played well last season in the Europa League. The Champions League is another level and the quality is higher."

  6. Mourinho on CSKA Moscow

    Jose Mourinho on tomorrow night's opponents: "This is the best CSKA Moscow side I have faced.

    "We are going to have a team with quality, with balance, to try to win the match which is our objective."

  7. There were no reasons

    Jose Mourinho is then asked for his thoughts on avoiding an FA ban after he was sent off in Manchester United's 1-0 win against Southampton.

    "If I am not punished it is because there were no reasons for the sending off," he said. "I am happy that was recognised and that I can be doing my work normally against Crystal Palace. That is enough for me."

  8. Mourinho: We will overcome

    United manager determined

    To kick things off Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was asked about how much his side will miss Marouane Fellaini, and other key men, in the midfield battle with CSKA on Wednesday night.

    He said: "The solutions are not many. We are trying not to focus on individual battles in specific areas on the pitch..we are going to have a team with quality and balance to try to win the match.

    "That's our objective."

  9. Smile!

  11. Fellaini fury

    CSKA Moscow v Man Utd (Wed, 1945BST)

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is due to sit down to face the media shortly ahead of his side's Champions League game with CSKA Moscow.

    It will be interesting to discover whether he has anything to say about midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

    The Belgian has missed the trip to Russia with an ankle injury he sustained from a tackle by Southampton's Shane Long on Saturday.

    United are known to be furious about the challenge, believing if it had been Fellaini who had done the same tackle, he would have been sent off rather than being shown a yellow card as was the case with Long.

  12. We're back

    CSKA Moscow v Manchester United (Weds, 19:45)

    Let's listen to what Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has got to say about his side's imminent Champions League game on Wednesday.

    Will it be a chilly reception for the Red Devils in Moscow?

  13. Pause in proceedings

  15. Now THAT is cold

    World Cup stadium can withstand -15 degree conditions

    Let's hope those engineers' feats don't have to be tested - for the sake of supporters at next year's World Cup at least.

    Brrrrrr.

  16. Paying the penalty

    .

    Is there a power struggle at Paris St-Germain?

    Edinson Cavani was the club's penalty taker before Neymar arrived in the summer and now the Barcelona man apparently fancies the responsibilty.

    There's been reports that PSG have offered to pay Cavani one million euros to let Neymar take spot kicks from now on.

    Interesting times...

    Henri Cooke: Lewandowski the best out and out centre forward, but Messi to win Golden Boot

  18. Get involved

    #bbcfootball

    There are some big names in top form already across Europe but who do you believe is the best striker on the continent and why?

    Who is your early shout to win the European golden boot?

    Let us know via #bbcfootball or text in on 81111 (UK only).

  19. Who is Europe's most deadly striker?

    .

    With three players on six goals from six games, the race for the Premier League's golden boot looks set to be hotly contested.

    Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero, Chelsea new boy Alvaro Morata and Manchester United's summer signing Romelu Lukaku are joint top of the scoring charts after impressive starts to the campaign.

    But how do they rank in comparison to the rest of Europe's hotshots, including Paulo Dybala? Have a look here.

  20. 'Everything is going my way'

    .

    Paulo Dybala is a player not short of confidence.

    The Juventus striker is into double figures already this season, averaging a goal every 47 minutes. No striker in Europe's top leagues can boast a better goals-per-minute ratio than the Argentine and he's looking for more goals when Juve take on Greek champions Olympiakos in the Champions League tomorrow night.

    "At the moment everything is going my way, and we're still at the start, I hope to continue like this," said Dybala. "I'm in a period of great confidence. I've changed mentally, I want to grow and improve to go as far as possible."
