Mourinho: Ajax should not be in the Europa League

Claude Puel gets hit in the head with the football

Sunday's fixture is likely to test Palace's desire now that survival is certain, but with United boss Jose Mourinho set to select a weakened XI with the following week's Europa League final in mind, Allardyce has urged his players to consider its consequences. He is learning how to live after his father passed away but he is strong and he knows he needs to play next Sunday because he doesn't play, train for a long time and he needs these minutes on the pitch.

"David? I think the first match against (American MLS side) LA Galaxy in preseason", he said.

Mourinho said Axel Tuanzebe, who has started United's last three league games, would be involved, along with his fellow academy graduates Demetri Mitchell, Scott McTominay, Matty Willock, Josh Harrop and Zachary Dearnley.

James Rodriguez, Antoine Griezmann and Romelu Lukaku are rumoured to be transfer targets of the Red Devils but according to reports in England all of them could snub a move to the Old Trafford in case the Red Devils don't play in Champions League next season. We finished fifth (in last season's Premier League), we went to the Europa League.

"We spent more time travelling, playing with hotels than at home because 60-something matches means 140 days in hotels".

Mourinho stressed that the first season at any new club is always hard, but is more optimistic about 2017-18 after what he has learned this term.

"They are a Champions League team; they come from the Champions League", Mourinho said.

Bosz added: "It's true both teams are big clubs in Europe with a big history and it is true they have more experience and more money". A problem for the weekend but not for the final.

Fosu-Mensah, Ibrahimovic, Rojo, Shaw, Young - injured; Bailly, Fellaini - doubtful.

Mourinho continued to rule Chris Smalling out of Sunday's game, but not the final, while Marouane Fellaini will undergo a late fitness test. "Let's wait for tomorrow but he needed to play".

"Fosu-Mensah plays Sunday [against Crystal Palace] and if the reaction is good and he plays without problems, he is a new option for us for the final". But as for lots of them together, I think no [they aren't ready].

I hope the fans at Old Trafford support the team, they forgive some naivety, they forgive some lack of confidence and I hope Big Sam shows he's a good friend and he goes slow.

"Of course I spoke with Nicky and his opinion is important".
