Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that Luke Shaw will be in the squad for the Champions League clash against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday night, but is not yet sure whether he will start the match or be on the bench.
"I am going to make a few, but not too many, changes", Mourinho said.
With the Frenchman unavailable for domestic duty until at least the Carabao Cup quarter-final meeting with Championship promotion hopefuls Bristol City on 20 December, Mourinho plans to involve him tomorrow as his side look to seal their place in the last 16 of European football's elite club competition. "More importantly, the other guys deserve an opportunity to play".

'Sergio Romero is number one and Joel [Pereira] number two, and David is the third best'.
'Our young players will have something to learn from him playing in the game but at the same time we can not allow him to play at his best and show everything he is capable of'.
"I speak with the manager and he's been very good for me". We didn't qualify yet. Mourinho is also yet to make a decision about Luke Shaw. He plays tomorrow. All the other players who didn't play the last match they are still out.
