Manchester United predicted line-up to face Tottenham

It's clear that winning the Europa League final and achieving qualification to the Champions League through that route is Jose Mourinho's priority, and the United boss has already confirmed one starter for the all-important game in Stockholm.

United suffered a 2-1 loss against Tottenham on Sunday to mathematically confirm that the Red Devils would finish outside the top four for a third time in four seasons.

40-year-old Skomina had overseen Ajax against Manchester United before as he was in charge for Ajax's 2-1 win at Old Trafford in the Europa League in 2012 when United went through 3-2 on aggregate.

Nerves were shredded at the final whistle but Mourinho's men held on by the skin of their teeth and no one will worry about that before the final in Sweden in 12 days' time.

"So I have to play them but I have to play them mixed, in periods". "The beauty of having these two games, with the preparation we've got, means we can go into the final firing on all cylinders and with everyone completely up to speed". We know if we lose the final, we don't play Champions League.

Mourinho said United were unlikely to appeal the decision, despite feeling the red card was harsh.

"They've been the most consistent team in the league and thanks to that they were able to celebrate the title last Friday after defeating West Brom, so my honest congrats to them".

"You know that in all of my career I was never (knocked) out of European competitions in the group phases and in the last 16 I was out only once".
