Jose Mourinho has revealed that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will definitely miss Manchester United's Premier League clash with Bournemouth at Old Trafford due to injury - but is in line to play against Chelsea in the FA Cup.
Mkhitaryan picked up an injury after scoring in United's recent win over Saint-Etienne, and he missed the EFL Cup final win last week because of the issue - picking up a hamstring injury in France shortly after scoring.
It had been thought that the 28-year-old would return to action against Bournemouth, but Mourinho has said that the attacker is unlikely to return until the FA Cup quarter-final against Chelsea on March 13.
"Mkhitaryan is still out", Mourinho told MUTV on Friday. "He didn't recover in time for this game".
'I believe, during the next week, especially for the weekend [ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge], he will be fine and we don't have major problems'. "Bastian (Schweinsteiger) has a little thing but, apart from that, everybody is fine".
With close to a fully fit squad at his disposal, Mourinho is satisfied he has the numbers and quality to cope with a demanding schedule. If we decide not to give a priority to any competition, as we've said every competition is important, we can not choose this team to play this match and that team to play that one.
