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

After another tiresome draw against Southampton on Wednesday night, it was confirmed that Manchester United would win fewer league fixtures this year than they have in any other Premier League season and were guaranteed to finish sixth in the table.

With Wednesday's Europa League Final to come, against Ajax in Stockholm, Mourinho could still end his first season at Old Trafford with two major pieces of silverware after collecting the League Cup.

"I don't want to talk about if we win it because we have to face a very good team, but I said after the FA Cup final last season we were building something good here, and it is confirmed now".

"I don't want to think about if, if, if [they qualify for the Champions League]".

Originally brought to United for the passing ability and vision he showed at Athletic Bilbao, Herrera has transformed into a defensive leader in midfield and will be responsible for shutting out Ajax in Wednesday's Europa League final.

"They came second in their league by a point, we missed out on the top four.Right now there is only one game that counts, and that is the final".

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho told MUTV: "Don't ask me too many things because now I am in a final".

James passes Jordan, Cavs back in Finals with 135-102 win
Irving took his turn first, carrying the Cavaliers after James picked up his fourth foul early in the second quarter. Irving stayed on the floor for several seconds before sitting up and re-tying his sneaker.

Perhaps most worryingly for Manchester United fans has been their performances in clashes with other sides in the top six with Mourinho consistently setting up defensively and looking to counter.

Crystal Palace's hard season ended in defeat but at least safety had already been guaranteed for next season.

It is Mourinho's winning mentality that Mata believes makes him the flawless fit for United. Even when I was out of the team at the start of the season he always gave me confidence I would get into the team if I was training and playing well.

Mindful of the risk of injury over the final weeks of the campaign, Mourinho has been careful to rest key players like Paul Pogba ahead of the final. Obviously you don't have as much time for recovery as you should, and we have lived that this season. 'I don't feel any pressure, but I see a lot of opportunities'.

- Paul Pogba netted his first Premier League goal since December by scoring in this game.

In soccer terms, another season in the energy-sapping Europa League is hardly ideal if United plans a genuine shot at the Premier League title.

Play was now slow and stretched at Old Trafford, which witnessed history in the 88th minute as Rooney was withdrawn and replaced by debutant Gomes.
