Jose Mourinho says Manchester United's last Premier League game should be moved

Sergio Romero in action

"He played 90 minutes in the last game [against Southampton], so probably not".

He again fielded an under-strength XI in Wednesday's 0-0 draw at Southampton, omitting Marcus Rashford, Michael Carrick, Ander Herrera, Paul Pogba and David de Gea, as goalkeeper Sergio Romero's performance earned them a draw.

He also reiterated his optimism De Gea would remain at the club, having earlier confirmed he would not play again this season, and amid increasing speculation linking the Spaniard with a transfer to Real Madrid.

But Mourinho wants to have the Spain number one when United begin their 2017/18 pre-season against LA Galaxy on July 15 as part of their tour of the United States.

"It is frustrating for me and I hope you don't kill me when you see my team".

"I hope to play Sergio in the final and hopefully we don't have problems with the keepers".

Wayne Rooney may have made his final appearance at Old Trafford for Manchester United with Jose Mourinho admitting the England captain is unlikely to play in Sunday's Premier League finale at home to Crystal Palace.

Speaking after Wednesday night's dire 0-0 draw at Southampton, Mourinho said: "In any country in the world the match would be Saturday because we are sixth no matter what and Crystal Palace are safe".

"We can feel shame after this game because we had many opportunities in the second half", he said".

"We have these two guys".

Mourinho says he will field a team of kids against Palace and even begged Palace counterpart Sam Allardyce to go easy on them.

"A clean sheet is good for us - for defenders, for me and for the team", Romero said on Sky Sports 1. The players showed me they want to be in the final, they want to be an option and they gave everything they have.

And Mourinho said that, despite an imperfect display, he was pleased with his side's desire to prove themselves ahead of the Ajax clash - signalling out Romero for individual praise. I don't lose time (requesting a switch I don't believe they would grant).

"The team wasn't flawless but individually they gave me good things".
