I won't make mistakes at Manchester United next season - Mourinho

Crystal Palace have lost 12 times to Manchester United in the Premier League, more than any other side they've faced. He looked to have picked up a knock in the 0-0 draw with Southampton on Wednesday night but Mourinho said afterwards he would be fit to face Crystal Palace.

The Portuguese coach offered a team news and injury update which included a major boost with Paul Pogba set to return to the first team after missing the last two games following the death of his father. To play so many kids at same time honestly I don't think it's good because there's a big difference of experence, strength, quality between them and Crystal Palace.

While he wants to preserve his top players for the Europa League final on Wednesday, Mourinho admits that he will bring in a few of the senior stars to help out the youngsters on Sunday.

Midfielder Marouane Fellaini is doubtful for United's last league game and next week's Europa League final after sustaining an injury yesterday.


"The only positive is for me to save my players and give him the opportunity for Wednesday".

A Man of the Match display including a plethora of diving stops, as well as saving a penalty from Manolo Gabbiadini, saw Romero impress everyone in attendance. "I hope he goes soft on us".

Who, precisely? Well, speaking at his press conference today, Mourinho listed several likely inclusions: Joel Pereira, Kieran O'Hara, Josh Harrop, Scott McTominay, Matty Willock, and the rather exciting Angel Gomes, who on Thursday night became the youngest ever victor of the Jimmy Murphy Youth Team Player of the Year award.

Wayne Rooney is not certain to start against Palace after 90 minutes against Spurs and Southampton.


"Chris Smalling has a problem, but a small problem that I think is no problem at all for next week".

"We played a good team, a team who tried to win and tried to finish well", Mourinho said after visiting goalkeeper Sergio Romero saved a barrage of hard shots, including Manolo Gabbiadini's fifth-minute penalty.

To this point, Ajax have played 55 times and Bosz does not believe that complaints about tiredness or schedules are credible ahead of a game of such magnitude. I never saw. I never saw.

NAIJ.com reported that United are set to lose a stagerring £38m in bonuses if they miss out on Europe's biggest competition next season.
