Man Utd boss Mourinho sweats on Fellaini injury

Ajax coach Peter Bosz believes Manchester United will be under pressure in their Europa League final next Wednesday in Stockholm.

- Even if United win their remaining game, this will be their lowest ever tally of wins in a single Premier League season (currently 17).

The former Napoli forward became the second Southampton forward to miss a penalty in as many games, following Shane Long's missed effort at the weekend in a 2-1 win over Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday.

Still, Bosz has told his opposite number that he has no excuses, as his young side have only played six matches fewer over the course of this season.

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.

Jose Mourinho is "handing an excuse" to his Manchester United players "to not play well" by continually claiming they are exhausted, says Graeme Souness.

He also said he had made no attempt to request a change in date because he is convinced it would be rejected, adding "I hope you don't kill me when you see my team".

United must beat Ajax to qualify for next season's Champions League and with nothing to play for in the Premier League, Mourinho was relieved to leave the south-coast without any major casualties. You know that in all of my career I was never out of European competitions in the group phases. I feel no pressure, just the pressure that everyone dreams of in these moments.

"I hope the fans at Old Trafford support the team, they forgive some naivety, they forgive some lack of confidence and I hope Big Sam shows he's a good friend and he goes slow".

"We will get more money in the turnover and if you get more money in the turnover you'll get extra budget (for wages and transfers)". "I hope he goes soft on us". "The team was not flawless but the players gave me good things".

8 - Sergio Romero is the 8th @ManUtd keeper to save a PL penalty; only Man City (11), Aston Villa (10) & Southampton (9) have more. "They showed they want to be in that final".
