Youthful Man United side beats Palace 2-0 in last EPL game

As Jose Mourinho talked Man United out of a top four spot, Janusz Michallik breaks down their Europa League chances.

Mourinho put out Manchester United's youngest ever Premier League side against Crystal Palace on Sunday with the majority of the first team rested for the big one on Wednesday.

Smalling is nursing a toe injury picked up during the 0-0 draw with Southampton earlier this month but should be fit to play if selected.

"So I say to myself, if I want to play every game for Manchester United, which is my dream, I have to do something else for the club and for the manager". If you are the manager or a player for this club, you have high demands. "The people who are fit are raring to go".

United finished in sixth place - out of the top four for the third time in four years since the retirement of manager Alex Ferguson - but can still qualify for the Champions League by winning the Europa League. "We want Champions League football", ESPN quotes Jones as saying.

The Portugal youth worldwide is likely to be back in the stands for the Europa League final against Ajax on Wednesday with Sergio Romero set to start and David De Gea on the bench.

Though the changes proved to be purposeful for the trip to Stockholm, but the clash showed the promise that United have in their ranks below the senior XI.

Rooney has been a bit-part player under Mourinho this season and has offers to leave in the summer. That means we weren't successful.

The 25-year-old said: "We've got a huge game on Wednesday that we need to prepare right for".

After an awkward couple of seconds, Mourinho said "Good".

"I've picked up a few injuries which were unfortunate". But of course, this season I made one step forward.

The Spanish star, 29, said: "He has been in so many finals and the mentality he gives to the players - to not just be in a final but win that final - is very important".

With this in mind, Mourinho needs to pick a confident attacking line up that will remind United's opponents of exactly what they are up against and set the tone for how they plan to approach the game.

"He was true to his word". 'I don't feel any pressure, but I see a lot of opportunities'.

De Joden defeated Olympique Lyonnais 5-4 on aggregate to reach their first European final since the 1995 UEFA Champions League.
