Fellaini, Smalling doubts for Europa League final

19 May 2017, 10:14 | Joan Schultz

Sunday's fixture is likely to test Palace's desire now that survival is certain, but with United boss Jose Mourinho set to select a weakened XI with the following week's Europa League final in mind, Allardyce has urged his players to consider its consequences.

"We played a good team, a team who tried to win and tried to finish well", Mourinho said after visiting goalkeeper Sergio Romero saved a barrage of hard shots, including Manolo Gabbiadini's fifth-minute penalty. "I don't want to field a team where people think we aren't fighting for the result - we are fighting for the result".

Mourinho has confirmed that Pogba will start against Palace this weekend as he needs to get some minutes under his belt ahead of next Wednesday night's Europa League final.

"We have a few in crutches but everybody goes. I've been at every game they've played at Old Trafford, I know them". Harrop. Gomes. McTominay. Fosu-Mensah.

Like United, Ajax have also played 14 games in this competition so will be able to sympathise with the gruelling route to Stockholm that Mourinho has often referenced.

With Mourinho determined to focus on the Ajax game, the United manager has made it clear he will hand senior debuts to a host of the club's youngsters alongside Pogba and Fosu-Mensah, who has recovered from a shoulder injury in time to play against Sam Allardyce's team.

Mourinho continued to rule Chris Smalling out of Sunday's game, but not the final, while Marouane Fellaini will undergo a late fitness test.

"A clean sheet is good for us - for defenders, for me and for the team, " Romero said. Again, his feelings aren't bad, but let's wait. It will be a big occasion but I think the best for the young player is in the middle of an experienced structure, where he can be supported. But as for lots of them together, I think no [they aren't ready]. Mourinho wanted the game moved, as neither United nor Palace have anything else to play for, but with that not an option, United are just going to miss it as best they can.

"So instead of looking at Manchester, I look at my team and the most important thing is we are fit and fresh, nobody is injured and that's a great way to prepare the team for next Wednesday".

The manager said he did not know whether England striker Wayne Rooney would feature.
