Jose: I have no choice but to play the kids

After his side played a tiresome goalless draw on Wednesday night against Southampton, Mourinho also asked the coach of Crystal Palace Sam Allardyce to go easy in the match.

This a vast improvement on the £25million fee they agreed with Manchester United just two years ago, when De Gea's transfer to the Bernabeu broke down at the last moment of the 2015 summer transfer window.

The Portuguse boss has fielded weakened teams in recent weeks with one eye on the Europa League as victory in next week's final will win United a place in the Champions League.

"As Graeme Souness said, they had their pants taken down in the [Paul] Pogba deal".

"I think they really need my support, Nicky Butt's and supporters to understand hard job they have". Strong guy. Strong mentality. 'He's learning how to live after his father passed away but he's strong and he knows he needs to play'.

"At the end of the day, Manchester United should still, with respect, beat Ajax on Thursday [sic] whether they are playing Crystal Palace on Sunday or not".

"I will be picking a team that I think will perform well. He plays against Palace".

With the club's focus centred on next week's Europa League final against Ajax, Mourinho is expected to give run-outs to as many as five raw talents at Old Trafford this weekend: Josh Harrop, Zak Dearnley, Matty Willock, Scott McTominay and Demetri Mitchell.

Marouane Fellaini is having a hamstring injury assessed, while Chris Smalling is set to be fit for Wednesday's final despite a "small problem" keeping him out against Palace.

The Portuguese also spoke of the "unbelievable" fixture schedule and took aim at those that "like to lie" about United's situation. "Tomothy Fosu-Mensah and Axel Tuanzebe will all be involved plus three or four first team players", Mourinho stated.

"Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, to have them - and in my case I had them in the best period of their career - and then when I returned the second time, I had them in their last period of their career".
