Premier League Mourinho admits Man United kids need more time

Premier League Mourinho admits Man United kids need more time

If Palace beat United - a feat they have not managed in the league since 1989 - and other results go their way, they could rise to 11th in the table and net £19m in prize money.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young are definitely out of the Europa League final, with Mourinho bemoaning United's injury situation when previewing the Ajax clash. A promising summer transfer window included signing Christian Benteke, Andros Townsend, James Tomkins and Steve Mandanda and fresh start from their poor league form in 2015/16 seemed inevitable.

"We qualified by winning the FA Cup, and because only ourselves and Southampton went through into that first round we got a bigger share of the market pool, and also the performance of Southampton and Tottenham later on in the competition meant that we picked up a bigger share of that market pool and will do throughout the knockout stages".

Mourinho's can not finish higher than sixth place this term. "I think they are paid not to lie, they are paid to be honest to speak the knowledge", he said.

"We will have Demi Mitchell, Scott McTominay, Josh Harrop, Matty Willock, Angel Gomes, Zachary Dearnley, I think that is it". But the players shouldn't be interested in the money until he has won.

I have no idea what sort of team either manager will put out, so it is very hard to predict the outcome.

Sidney Crosby's post-concussion return is only getting more uncomfortable
Crosby took a nasty spill in the first period when he was slammed into the end boards head-first while he tangled with Carlson. That's a blink of the eye in your day. "If you're looking for a test when you're coming back, that's a good one".

With their Dutch rivals designated as the "home" team for the game in Stockholm, they will wear their white and red kit as they look to win the club's first European trophy since 1995.

The former Everton forward rejected the chance to move to the Chinese Super League in February, insisting he wanted to help United pursue silverware this season. The only side they have played more without tasting defeat is Charlton (16, W14 D2).

Sam Allardyce is happy to have "put the past in the past" after bouncing back from his England disappointment to keep Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

"[Next season is] five years in the Premier League and if you're going to stand still you'll end up getting relegated, so you've got to improve the squad, the team, the backroom staff".

The Crystal Palace manager was involved in a sting by the Telegraph and after the revelations by the national newspaper, Allardyce has opened up to the Daily Mail about his pain after losing his dream job. "'Apart from the last two they were very good days".

Probability of away win: 12%.
