Romero at the ready in Man United stalemate

Romero at the ready in Man United stalemate

Kasper Dolberg feels Ajax have looked like the best team in the Europa League this season when they have played attacking football and believes they have a huge chance of beating Manchester United in the final.

De Gea is also set to miss out on the Europa League final after Mourinho confirmed that Romero will start against Ajax on 24 May - a decision that is understood to have left the Spaniard aggrieved.

During his pre-match interview Southampton manager Puel said he was hoping that win against Middlesbrough can help them finish their season on a strong note.

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.

'I hope to play Joel against Palace, I hope to play Sergio in the final, hopefully we don't have problems with these two goalkeepers. "We really want to", Mourinho said.

Southampton take on Manchester United in Premier League action. It's true that the calendar has been hectic over the last two months, but we have to push hard now to try to win the three remaining games. "I think we did more than okay", Mourinho said. He signed a new deal, buckled down and did his absolute best to drag some uninspiring United teams to success.

FC Copenhagen condemned Ajax to their first Europa League defeat of the campaign but Kasper Dolberg's away goal in the 2-1 loss gave them plenty of hope.

Around the same time, a tornado hit Barron County, Wisconsin. "They are working house to house, home to home, looking for people". Another tornado was captured on video near Mclean, Texas, though no injuries or significant damage were immediately reported.

"I think we deserved to score".

"They showed me that they want to be in the final, they want to be an option".

Southampton boss Claude Puel - whose future on the south coast has been called into question -meanwhile, was left to rue his side's failure to make their domination pay.

Mourinho's side escaped the semifinal of Europa League by one goal in the first leg against Celta Vigo, placed thirteenth in the Spanish League.

Manchester United have sealed a brilliant sixth place finish, while Southampton are fighting it out for a place in the top eight.

Gabbiadini's poor effort represented Southampton's third penalty miss in the Premier League this season and a failure to make their domination count nearly proved costly for the hosts when Anthony Martial rattled the upright.

Statistics wise, it doesn't look pretty, as despite close to 50 games this season, he has managed just seven goals and 4 assists.
