It looks like Nuri can't make his debut. Just when he looked ready to keep working with the team, he sprained his left knee again.

Jose Mourinho just confirmed this new injury in his press conference, but he has not given a timetable for his recovery. I expect he will be out for another month and a half, maybe even two months [Gabe's Update, 11:08AM EST: I'm hearing 3-4 weeks right now].

Let's hope Xabi Alonso stays healthy during this time, since his situation is the same as last year's: he has no substitute.

With Khedira and Granero out, Mourinho has reported that Coentrao will be starting tomorrow alongside the Spaniard.
