Mourinho to give Dearnley, Gomes, Harrop, Mitchell and Willock their United debuts

Mourinho Hopes Palace Go Easy On Them

Man United Injury List vs Crystal Palace: Fellaini, Smalling, Fosu-Mensah

Mourinho told his prematch news conference: "Paul [Pogba] is fine, a strong guy, a strong mentality". He is learning how to live after his father passed away but he is strong and he knows that he needs to play next Sunday because he doesn't play, doesn't train for a long time and he needs minutes on the pitch.

Southampton missed a penalty as they held a makeshift Manchester United side to a 0-0 draw in a tepid Premier League clash on Wednesday. So I think it's just a lost battle [asking to move the game]. "A problem for the weekend, but not the final". We didn't send for a scan until now because we wanted to wait. The Ivory Coast worldwide could feature in the back line with Timothy Fosu-Mensah and left-back Demi Mitchell, the club's Under-23 Player of the Year.

Matteo Darmian is expected to be given a rest so youngster Demetri Mitchell could start at left-back with Axel Tuanzebe continuing on the right after impressing in recent games.

Having denied Gabbiadini after Eric Bailly handled the ball on the edge of the penalty area, Romero also kept out a fierce Dusan Tadic free kick in the second half before United's Anthony Martial hit the woodwork.

Smalling is in line to take his place alongside Daley Blind if he can prove his fitness ahead of the trip to Sweden.

Manchester United have no plans to sell goalkeeper David de Gea this summer, according to manager Jose Mourinho.

"Are they ready? All together, no".

Midfield: Teenager Scott McTominay could be handed his first start in midfield but Mourinho has promised to add some of his first team players to the side so Michael Carrick could play to add an experienced head in the middle of the park.

"For the kids it will be a great experience to play in the Premier League in the last match of the season".

"I think if a team goes to the Champions League and then doesn't qualify, they should go home, they shouldn't have the opportunity to play in the Europa League".

"And I hope that Big Sam (Allardyce, the Palace manager) shows he is a good friend and he goes slow".

The result had no material impact on United's season, given they were already guaranteed to finish sixth, and means Mourinho's men have now drawn 15 times this season. We finished fifth (in last season's Premier League), we went to the Europa League.
