Mourinho: I won't make mistakes in second Man Utd season

Mourinho: I won't make mistakes in second Man Utd season

Fellaini appeared to have strained a hamstring, although Mourinho explained the player assured him the damage was not serious.

United goalkeeper Sergio Romero, making only his second league start of the season, instead frustrated them, aiding the Red Devils' preparations for next weekend's Europa League final and demonstrating his ability to perhaps replace De Gea permanently. It's just a lost battle. I never saw that with Chelsea, with United, with Man City a year ago.

Jose Mourinho had an interesting response to a question regarding David de Gea after the match against Southampton.

"The team was not ideal but I think the players individually gave me good things, they showed a great attitude and they showed me they want to be in the final".

The United manager has confirmed Sergio Romero will start the Europa League final and the Argentina goalkeeper seized a chance to shine at Southampton, plunging to his right to save a sixth-minute penalty from Manolo Gabbiadini. I never saw. I never saw.

Romero, second choice to David De Gea in the Premier League but preferred in Europe's second-tier competition throughout the season, seems to have cemented his place for the showdown in Sweden's capital. It's a job we need to do and hopefully we can go there and do it.

President Donald Trump listens to questions from the media as he meets with Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos in the Oval Office on May 18, 2017.

"I hope to play Joel against Crystal Palace, I hope to play Sergio in the final".

"Tells (Wilfried) Zaha to go slow, leaves (Christian) Benteke at home; I hope he goes soft on us".

Mourinho said the likes of Demetri Mitchell, Scott McTominay, Axel Tuanzebe, Matthew Willock, Josh Harrop and Zachary Dearnley would join Eric Bailly and Paul Pogba in the matchday squad.

Mourinho is also guaranteed to finish his first United season with fewer league victories than either of his two maligned predecessors, David Moyes and Louis van Gaal, mustered in the previous three seasons.

"I try to stay focused about our last game now", he said.
