Manchester United

Manchester United’s tight schedule continues with another high-profile clash at White Hart Lane. The Premier League giants are draining last drops of their strength and power to finish the current season on a high. Jose Mourinho is unhappy with fixture congestion his team is being put through, but the Portuguese will still be happy with his team’s response, especially after a Thursday’s Europa League clash against Celta Vigo, which saw Red Devils clinch their place in the final. The Premier League giants took a lead through Marouane Fellaini early in the first half, but conceded through Roncaglia with five minutes on the clock. Last couple of minutes saw emotions boil and Bailly and Roncaglia got dismissed after a brawl, but it was Manchester United who celebrated in the end thanks to Marcus Rashford’s away goal last week. Jose Mourinho has long given up on the Premier League run and is prioritizing the Europa League where he wants to grab a Champions League ticket more than to lift the trophy. He made eight changes to starting line-up last time out in the Premier League as he suffered a 2-0 defeat against Arsenal, and we should expect to see the Portuguese manager shuffle his deck once again.

Team News

Marouane Fellaini is unavailable through suspension, whereas there are couple of injured players as well for the visitors.

Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Fosu-Mensah, Marcos Rojo and long-term absentee Zlatan Ibrahimovic are all unavailable for selection.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho plans to rest players for Sunday’s Premier League trip to Tottenham Hotspur ahead of the Europa League final against Ajax.United beat Celta Vigo 2-1 on aggregate to progress to the showpiece event in Stockholm on May 24, with the winner receiving a place in the Champions League group stage next season.

With the top four looking increasingly unlikely, Mourinho knows he must protect his key men in the remaining games before the final – and that could mean more opportunities for younger players.

Axel Tuanzebe shone on his full debut last weekend against Arsenal and could get another chance to impress, while youngsters Demi Mitchell, Matthew Willock, Scott McTominay and Matthew Olosunde also travelled to the Emirates.
