'So I think after the moment Crystal Palace beat Hull City and Hull are relegated, and Swansea are safe, I think in that moment the match has to be Saturday. "Everyone dreams of these games, so there's no pressure, just a big opportunity".

Mourinho said he will field several youngsters for Sunday's match at Old Trafford, adding: "I hope you don't kill me when you see my team". Mourinho says with the game having no bearing on the top or bottom of the table, the fixture should have moved forward to allow United extra time to prepare for their European final.

But when asked if the young players were ready, Mourinho said: "All together? No".

"My way is the Ajax way", Bosz said. "We're not going to influence anything one way or the other in terms of results for ourselves, and it would have been a good gesture by the Premier League to have done it to give them the best chance".

"We were there previous year and had as many games as they have now".

Jose Mourinho has said he will shuffle his pack extensively ahead of Wednesday's Europa League final against Ajax in Stockholm, meaning there could be a string of full debutants for the Red Devils.

"What would the Premier League have done if he [Mourinho] played a weak team at Old Trafford and we had won, with us still needing to stay up?"

"If they win then it's been a great season, but if they don't it's a major disappointment, especially with the money they spent in the summer". And I hope that Big Sam [Allardyce] shows he's a good friend and he goes slow. January recruits Luka Milivojevic, Mamadou Sakho and Patrick van Aanholt also had important roles to play, while Wilfried Zaha enjoyed the best season of his career. I believe it's the Ajax way of playing, because I'm inspired by the 1970s when Johan Cruyff and Rinus Michels were in Ajax, playing with the same vision that I have.

Mourinho will essentially be treating the Palace fixture like a friendly, as he'll play what could be as many as nine U23s in this one.
