Manchester United ended their Premier League season on a high, Josh Harrop and Paul Pogba sealing victory over Crystal Palace.

United, who face Ajax Amsterdam in the Europa League final on Wednesday, finished sixth.

Some trivia for Man United fans: Who became the 100th different Man United player to score a Premier League goal?

O'Hara, born in Manchester with Irish grandparents, joined United aged eight and progressed through the ranks before gaining experience on a number of loan deals in recent years. "Hopefully we'll get a good result, everybody will enjoy it and we'll play well", he added.


- United have played Crystal Palace 16 times in the Premier League and have never lost (W13 D3), their joint-most versus a team without defeat (also Charlton).

"I hope Big Sam shows he is a good friend and he asks Wilfried Zaha to go slow and leaves Chrsitian Benteke at home and they go soft on us", Mourinho said.

Pogba and Jesse Lingard were withdrawn before half-time with an eye on the Europa League final, but captain Wayne Rooney played all but two minutes despite Mourinho strongly suggesting he would be rested. They give you confidence and helped me a lot in the game.

The big Dutchman saved the decisive spot-kick from Nicolas Anelka in 2008 as Chelsea were beaten on penalties in European football's biggest club match, and next month he will play with numerous team-mates from those days in Michael Carrick's testimonial.


"It is going to be one of the most important games in my life".

"It was how I developed into the person and player I am now". But I don't think the players should be interested in the money.

"I will be picking a team that I think will perform well".

Mourinho was reported to have left Old Trafford by 1610GMT, within 20 minutes of the final whistle.


The home side started the brighter of the two, in what looked from the outside, like an exhibition match at best.
