Whether Mourinho is able to keep the three time Player of the Year remains to be seen, but De Gea is believed to be happy at the club and is not prepared to push for a move to Real Madrid.

"They are a mishmash of players and I don't think he has a clue what his best team is".

Talking to reporters after Wednesday's tiresome 0-0 draw with Southampton at St. Mary's, Mourinho said, "In any country in the world the match would be Saturday because we are sixth no matter what and Crystal Palace are safe".

Having played several other fringe players against Southampton, Mourinho said the understudies had given him food for thought as he considers his team for the final.

- Mourinho's United have drawn 15 league games - the club's most in a Premier League season.

He saved a penalty in United's goalless draw at Southampton on Wednesday night, his 11th clean sheet in 17 games this season as he second guessed Manolo Gabbiadini.

Ducks even Western finals at 2, beating Predators 3-2 in OT
During the Ducks' playoff run in 2015, the winger scored 10 goals in 16 games as the team reached Game 7 of the conference finals. Tuesday's 2-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks in Game 3 of the Western Conference final was simply the latest example.

Both teams are now struggling for form at the moment as they have each won just one game from their last five matches in all competitions, drawing two and losing two. "We are going to play our 56 game on Wednesday", he said. "We perhaps need to work a little more on the training sessions because the penalties have been very important", Puel told reporters.

"It would have been a good gesture by the Premier League".

But United were already guaranteed to finish sixth, while Southampton, who have not scored in four successive top-flight home games for the first time, remain eighth.

Jose Mourinho is "handing an excuse" to his Manchester United players "to not play well" by continually claiming they are exhausted, says Graeme Souness. And I hope that Big Sam [Allardyce] shows he's a good friend and he goes slow.

United executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, said: "We are forecasting better full-year financial performance than expected and as such have raised our revenue and profit guidance for the year".

"We will play our 56th game next Wednesday and if you look at the age of the players we have, then it is a really young team who have also played a lot of games", said Bosz.
