Speaking after United's 2-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Sunday, which ended their top four hopes, Mourinho identified to the possibility of an continental title as a point of envy.

The result means Manchester United can not finish in the top four this season and must win the Europa League final against Ajax to qualify for next season's Champions League.

Jose Mourinho says his team does not want to play in any league games, as they want to prepare for the Europa League final.

"Of course I have in my mind already what I think is going to be the team but the players can influence decisions with positive or negative performances", Mourinho said about his team selection for the Europa League final. You can't play two big competitions with 15 players.

"If we want to try and get some results and protect players, which matches to protect players?"

The former Chelsea boss has made it very clear that he will be making plenty of changes to keep his squad fresh for their season-defining Europa League final against Ajax a week after their trip to St. Mary's.

They are guaranteed a place in next season's Europa League, but their Champions League eggs are now all in one basket.

Man Utd goalkeeper David De Gea could reportedly be denied the opportunity to play in the last Premier League game of the season at Old Trafford. After 2-0 we brought a bit more balance to the team because we put players in the right positions and we put midfielders in midfield and the team improved a lot.

'The two goals are bad to concede but the team is not used to playing together'.

"Really disappointed because Chelsea in the end they won the Premier League".
