"In any country in the world, the match would be Saturday because Sunday, we are sixth, doesn't matter what, and Crystal Palace is safe", the United manager told reporters after Wednesday's 0-0 draw at Southampton. (But) it's going to be Sunday.

"It's frustrating for me". However, even if United have one eye on the final in Stockholm in a week's time, is a half-hearted effort - the second in the space of a few days after the Tottenham defeat - good enough for a club of United's stature, regardless of how little there was to play for on the south coast? I enjoy the second because in the second I know I'm not making mistakes.

Mourinho's side will finish sixth in the Premier League but they will secure Champions League football next season if they can beat Ajax in the Europa League final next Wednesday.

"I never saw any detail of trying to care about the English teams involved in European competitions", he said.

The omission against Saints drew fears De Gea may never be seen in a United shirt again, but Mourinho has moved to quash those suggestions.

"It's utter rubbish because what about the lad that gets booked that didn't dive?" said Allardyce at a Crystal Palace press conference on Thursday. "I hope he goes soft on us".

Romero's form as back-up for De Gea this season has been very impressive, giving Mourinho plenty to ponder ahead of an offseason when Real Madrid could come back in for De Gea following interest in the goalkeeper in previous transfer windows.

"Everyone goes", Mourinho said of his travelling party.

Mourinho downplayed any chance of United allowing De Gea to leave, saying: "David is top in the world and we want to keep the top in the world".

Anthony Martial hit the post late on for the Red Devils in a game which largely passed them by, but after speaking to the club's official website, Mourinho appeared relatively happy with the point.

"Any team has a debrief at the end of the season and this is normal but the end of the season is after the last game", said Puel, 55.
