Chelsea striker Loic Remy to miss clash with Manchester United

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho does not expect striker Loic Remy to be fit for Sunday's trip to Manchester United in the Premier League.

Remy suffered a "muscular injury" after scoring the opener in the Blues' 6-0 Champions League win against Maribor at Stamford Bridge.

Nine-goal striker Diego Costa has a hamstring injury, leaving Didier Drogba as Chelsea's only fit senior striker.
"I'm not worried. We don't cry on injuries," said Mourinho.

"When a player is injured, play another one.

"It's our philosophy, we don't cry. We just think one injury means an opportunity for somebody else.

"We will prepare for the game [against Manchester United] Thursday, Friday, Saturday to try to be at our best possible level against an opponent which we respect very, very much."
