United can of course derail that attempt, inflict City's first defeat of the season, and cut the gap to the top for five points if they can take all three points, but Mourinho has declared that facing CSKA is the only thing the players and coaching staff are interested in for now.
Mathematically United need a point to secure first position in Group A, but Mourinho will be looking for all three - and an impressive performance to match - ahead of the huge Manchester derby on Sunday afternoon.
Mourinho said: "He's not suspended for the Champions League".
"Zlatan is not injured", Mourinho said in his pre-match press conference on Monday. To work really hard for a certain period of time, he can not play these days. Of course he is a bit exhausted because it was a huge match last weekend and just two days to recover.
Manchester United may have slipped up against Basel last time out but know that short of an unmitigated calamity they will still qualify for the round of 16, in all likelihood as group winners.

How far the likes of Fellaini, Bailly and Jones are from full recovery remains a mystery, but with Pogba missing out over the weekend you expect them to be rushed back for what promises to be a defining game in the context of this season. We don't think about the next, just about tomorrow.
"I will make a few but not too many changes".
"But he is very happy to play tomorrow and to try to keep his momentum because since he was back from injury he has been phenomenal". He is in a cycle of work, in the gym and on the pitch. He'll be back to normal after CSKA'. He plays tomorrow. Of course he's a bit exhausted because it was a huge match in the last weekend and just two days to recover for CSKA.
United are also unbeaten in 20 European home matches - winning 16 times in the process. "There are other clubs also involved in the qualification and I need to keep a certain balance in the team", Mourinho said.
"But when you speak about Luke Shaw, he is working to have an opportunity, and sooner or later an opportunity will arrive, because he deserves a chance". Selected for tomorrow, yes, for sure. But starting or on the bench?
