Henrikh Mkhitaryan says Manchester United have heeded Jose Mourinho's "Playstation football" criticism

Henrikh Mkhitaryan says Manchester United have heeded Jose Mourinho's

The Red Devils travel to Russian Federation tonight for UEFA Champions League action but do so with their manager's words ringing in their ears after Mourinho had criticised them for taking their foot off the gas against Basel earlier this month.

"He didn't exactly say names, but everyone thinks: 'I've done something bad, I've made mistakes'".

"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".

A win on Wednesday would see Man Utd go three points clear at the top of Champions League Group A, with CSKA now behind the Old Trafford side on goal difference alone.

Fellaini joined the list of absentees, which also includes Paul Pogba, after sustaining an ankle injury in Saturday's win over Southampton following a first-half tackle from Shane Long.

"This season is different", he said during a news conference ahead of United's Champions League match with CSKA Moscow.

"We don't have Fellaini, we don't have Pogba, we don't have Carrick", said the United boss.

"He scored a terrific goal - he played Martial early on and Martial brought a good save out of the goalkeeper, but he's still got plenty to do as he ran in and lashed it in".

"Fellaini was lucky, it could be a much worse situation but in a moment when we don't have Pogba and Carrick, Marouane becomes even more important than he is and not to be here tomorrow is a hard situation for us". In comparison to his last season, which turned out to be quite awful for former Borrusia Dortmund midfielder, where he only played small cameos thanks to a poor display in the Manchester derby trounce at Old Trafford last season."I think that was last season. No camera for Craig and he made that decision".
