Manchester United will be without defensive midfielder Nemanja Vidic for Tuesday's dead rubber Champions League group game with CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford.
Speaking to MUTV on Monday, Mourinho said: "We have problems, we have injuries, Matic is injured and when I say he is injured, he is injured. I am not going to make him play so Matic is out. A couple of others guys are playing every match and they also need a rest. More importantly, the other guys deserve an opportunity to play." Mourinho confirmed that David De Gea will be completely rested on Tuesday with Romero starting and Joel Pereira on the bench to replace him if necessary. Luke Shaw will be in the match day squad but whether he will start or not is still unknown. Paul Pogba is another confirmed starter. Zlatan Ibrahimovic didn't even make the bench at Arsenal on Saturday and Mourinho confirmed that he was suffering fatigue in the knee which ruled him out for months. He was keen to impress that this sort of issue is part of a rehab project on a complex injury and not a major setback. Dec 4 - 1:28 PM
