Mourinho: United 'don't want to play' Premier League games

Manchester United predicted line-up to face Tottenham

"Now it's time to play two good games to close the Premier League season and reach the Europa League final in the best shape that we can", Mata said.

Mourinho, who leads his team into the Europa League final against Ajax later this month, made eight changes to his starting XI at White Hart Lane having admitted domestic matter are now low on his priority list.

The Red Devils have suffered a disappointing league campaign in Mourinho's first year at the helm, with this afternoon's 2-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur mathematically ruling them out of finishing in the top four.

United know they can not break into the top four on the strength of their final two Premier League games against Southampton and Crystal Palace, as they trail Liverpool by eight points with only six left up for grabs.

The "Special One" has played Sergio Romero in nearly all their Europa League games this season and the Argentine has been selected by Jose Mourinho to man the post in the finals.

Darmian told reporters that United wanted to win the trophy for them and added: "Eric was not very happy for the red card but we have other players to cope with that". We go to Tottenham this weekend, away against Southampton and then at home on the last game [against Crystal Palace] and we want to win every game to be ready for the final.

"You know that in all of my career I was never out of European competitions in the group phases".

Victory for Manchester United in the Europa League final against Ajax next week would be collectively worth £38 million to their players and make it the most lucrative match ever staged for a single squad.

"We know it's not going to be easy". You can't let players go two weeks without a game before a cup final like that. I don't know what is important for them. "I'm serious. I think he made one mistake".

After the last Premier League defeat, Man United is on the 6th place with 65 points. "Even if it was unfair, I don't think UEFA rules will allow any chance of an appeal", said Mourinho. "Smalling, Jones, Mata - it is very important for them to play 90 minutes".
