Mourinho says he has 'worked harder than ever' this season

United's 2-1 loss to Tottenham cemented their status outside of the top four, leaving only the Europa League as the only way to qualify for the UCL.

The Ivory Coast centre-back will be suspended for the final against Ajax in Stockholm later this month, leaving United manager Mourinho to grumble about Roncaglia's provocation and his player's needless reaction.

According to The Mirror, De Gea will likely face Tottenham and Southampton with both clashes away from home, but Joel Pereira could be drafted in to make his Premier League debut against Palace next Sunday.

"Only now say to our fans we will try next season to give our best and fight again to win the league". When I analyse, I don't think that way.

"When I have 14, 15 players, I can't do it". "We will have three matches in the Premier League to play with a group of 15-16 players after a insane season with so many matches." .

"So [it is] hard but we know what we are doing and I don't know other clubs, I don't know the way they think, I don't know what is important for them".

"We need three good goalkeepers".

Ajax, a club chasing former glories after winning the last of its four European Cups in 1995 and leading 4-1 after the first leg, came through with a 5-4 victory on aggregate.

Of course, should United win the Europa League, Mourinho will point to his selections in the Premier League as something that have paid off, and something he had to do - and he may well be proven right. We had a fantastic record of 25 matches (unbeaten).

"You always have a little bit of rivalry, especially if you are both the same kind of level".

"We are speaking about the Argentina national goalkeeper and the Spain national goalkeeper".

Skomina has been an worldwide referee since 2003 and this season has officiated six matches in the Champions League - a competition in which the 40-year-old irked Mourinho in October 2015.

"It hurts a lot, but they say time heals everything, so let's hope that's true".

"I didn't see the red card incident but Eric was phenomenal".

As a effect, and with knowledge their opponents will have seven more days rest before the Stockholm final, Mourinho will field different lineups in their forthcoming games.
