Manchester Utd have reached the knockout stages in 16 of their previous 20 Champions League appearances; however they haven't made it past the group stages since 2013/14.
United returned to the competition after a season in the Europa League with a 3-0 win over Basel in their opening game in Group A earlier this month, and take on CSKA Moscow in Russian Federation on Wednesday.
Both games in Russian Federation have ended in draws but at Old Trafford United have ran out winners with the most recent meeting in the 2015/16 ending in a 1-0 win for United with Wayne Rooney scoring the victor.
Carrick is also injured, while defender Phil Jones can play after a European suspension - but will not feature.
"This year we have the Champions League and we are all concentrating on winning it", he told a news conference in Moscow on Tuesday.
While talking to the press, Mourinho said, "I won't have Fellaini, I won't have Pogba, we won't have Carrick, so all three midfield players that we lose for this match".

"But this season is different because I started playing well and the connection and understanding with other players, especially [Romelu] Lukaku, is great and I hope we can score many goals in the coming games".
This is a real banana skin fixture for Manchester United, who habitually struggle to play with a high enough tempo for sticky away games such as this one. They are yet to taste defeat this season and boast a mean defence, having only conceded two goals.
The United juggernaut is back up and running in a way that has not been seen since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club.
CSKA Moscow boss Viktor Goncharenko made the statement on the eve of his side's Champions League clash with the English giants, who have fond memories of the Russian capital after lifting the trophy there in 2008. Every time I come it's better, so I have to say that it's a pleasure.
