That is the view of former Arsenal ahead-became-pundit Charlie Nicholas.
Manchester United unfolded their Champions League marketing campaign in high-quality taste with a three-zero win over Basel at Old Trafford.
But Jose Mourinho will be without Pogba and Fellaini for his or her conflict towards CSKA Moscow, who themselves received their opening-day sport towards Benfica.
The duo have each been dominated out because of damage, with Fellaini being the newest casualty after he picked up a knock in United’s onerous-fought 1-zero win over Southampton at St Mary’s.
And Nicholas reckons their absence may make lifestyles tricky for Manchester United this night (7:45pm).
“This is another dangerous trip, especially as United were probably as poor as they’ve been this season at Southampton,” Nicholas advised Sky Sports.
“I do nonetheless assume you’ll get at them and I believe Jose Mourinho may make two or 3 adjustments to provide them just a little extra keep watch over.
“The Premier League desk suggests they have got been walking alongside extra conveniently than they’ve and the overdue objectives have flattered them rather.
“I believe CSKA will be very competitive and, whilst United can take care of themselves, it will unsettle their rhythm and it will take some time for them to get going, particularly without Paul Pogba or Marouane Fellaini.”
But in spite of their present damage disaster, CSKA boss Viktor Goncharenko reckons United have their most powerful group since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
He mentioned: “After Alex Ferguson’s legacy, this current version of Manchester United is without any doubt the strongest team.”
