Man United held by Southampton in 0-0 stalemate

Wayne Rooney and Co were held to a goalless draw by Southampton on Wednesday night

With no scope of making it to the top four of the Premier League, Manchester United have put their entire focus on the Europa League final against Ajax, victory of which will lead to qualification for the UEFA Champions League next season for the Red Devils.

De Gea was not called for United's game on Wednesday against Southampton in the Premier League, a substitution that reportedly surprised him. I hope you don't kill me when you see my team [against Palace]. Southampton boss Claude Puel: "Any teams have a debrief at the end of the season and this is normal but the end of the season is after the last game".

"It's frustrating for me".

And Mourinho did little to quell transfer rumour's that De Gea's appearance against Tottenham on Sunday will be the Spaniard's last for United when he dropped the former Atletico Madrid man from the matchday squad at St Mary's. I think they are paid not to lie they are paid to be honest and speak from their knowledge to the people that watch TV and read papers.

"The next match Joel (Pereira, United's 20-year-old third choice goalkeeper) is playing his first match in the Premier League". It's just a lost battle.

"I'm here [in English football] already seven years; I never saw any detail of trying to care about the English teams involved in European competitions". I never saw that with Chelsea, I never saw that with Manchester United, I never saw that with Manchester City past year.

He also joked he hoped his "good friend" Allardyce would tell Palace to "go slow", and the Palace manager responded: "There's no doubt about that (that the game should have been moved)".

"Because it's Man United and they have the money".

Mourinho, who briefly talked to Fellaini before he went down the tunnel, added: "Fellaini has a bad feeling, he doesn't think it is a tear. For this club we need the trophy".

Asked if he had any more injury concerns after the game, Mourinho said: 'I don't know.

Paul Pogba will also have a role to play as he needs match practice ahead of the Europa League final after being absent in recent days following the death of his father. And whether Jose plays a weakened side or not, it will always be a hard task because even if they are younger players at Manchester United, they are definitely very talented.
