Phil Jones: 'Europa League final defining moment for Manchester United'

Share

Jose Mourinho's injury crisis dissipated a bit in the last week after Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Juan Mata returned for Manchester United's 0-2 loss to Arsenal which will give the manager more options going into their Europa League semi-finals second-leg against Celta Vigo on Thursday (11 May).

With Wednesday's make-or-break Europa League final against Ajax looming large, Jose Mourinho stuck to his word by resting numerous key players and handing four young prospects their full debut with sixth place in the Premier League table already assured.

With United due to face Ajax in the Europa League final on Wednesday, Mourinho made no attempt to hide his desire to keep his key players fresh for the Stockholm showpiece.

"I don't want to talk about if we win it because we have to face a very good team, but I said after the FA Cup final last season we were building something good here, and it is confirmed now".

Manchester United must not underestimate Ajax Amsterdam in the Europa League final on Wednesday, defender Daley Blind has said.

A much-changed United side, their youngster-ever Premier League line-up, beat Crystal Palace thanks to goals from 21-year-old Josh Harrop and Paul Pogba with 20-year-old McTominay starting in midfield. 'I don't get that at all when people say he doesn't bring youth through.

Expected to start July 17, the recall reportedly comes after the NHTSA discovered the webbing problem through a series of tests. Only units manufactured on 7/22/2014 and that have a webbing code 2014/06 on a tag on the harness webbing are affected.

Manchester United have qualified for the final of a European competition after eight long years - they made it to the finals of the 2009 Champions League. And I know he's a Manchester United fan, so I tell him the same as I tell everyone: "I will not stop here".

"But overall it has been a great success since the turn of the year and a big achievement by all the players, all the backroom staff, and the owners, to get to where we are - to get safe without having to come to Man United for any points". "Keep doing what I am doing in the gym and outside, and hopefully push, get in the manager's ear and hopefully play some more games".

"But I can understand the lads' tiredness - we've had a lot of games".

The 16-year-old Gomes became the youngest debutant since Duncan Edwards and the first millennial to appear in the top-flight, and Harrop stated that Sunday's clash is a big day for the club's academy.

As he wheeled away in celebration, he was being congratulated by his team-mates before he pointed to the sky in tribute to his father.
