United are stuck in sixth even after a goalless draw with Southampton at St Mary's Stadium

They don't want me to leave them out.

Sergio Romero displayed some eye-catching pre-Europa League final form by saving a penalty as Manchester United drew 0-0 at Southampton in their penultimate Premier League game yesterday.

"I'm here (in English football) already seven years; I never saw any detail of trying to care about the English teams involved in European competitions". Southampton boss Claude Puel: "Any teams have a debrief at the end of the season and this is normal but the end of the season is after the last game". I never saw that with Chelsea, I never saw that with Manchester United, I never saw that with Manchester City a year ago. And I hope that Big Sam [Allardyce] shows he's a good friend and he goes slow.

Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas believes that Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea will be a Real Madrid player next season. "Tells (Wilfried) Zaha to go slow, leaves (Christian) Benteke at home; I hope he goes soft on us".

United take on Ajax next Wednesday in a season-defining contest that could see them land a second major trophy of the season and earn a place in next season's Champions League.

Mourinho dismissed injury concerns surrounding Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata, despite the former having a "a bad feeling in the hamstring". I think we need two top goalkeepers and a top young goalkeeper and this is what we have in this moment.

"Many people thought it would not be possible for a Dutch team to reach a final", he said.

Dean made a decision to play his trump card by awarding an outrageous penalty kick against United defender Eric Bailly for hand-balling outside of the 18-yard box.

(Andrew Matthews/PA) Southampton had just outplayed United who, though not at full strength, still had a more-than impressive starting XI.

"We are sixth, Crystal Palace are safe, it doesn't matter", Mourinho said. "Man United. One of the biggest football clubs in the world, richest clubs in the world and they're playing those two in midfield".

"I think we played a good team, a good game, against a team that tried to win and tried to finish well and finish eighth".

Paul Pogba will also have a role to play as he needs match practice ahead of the Europa League final after being absent in recent days following the death of his father.
