And Mourinho has revealed that he has already got an idea of the team he will play against the Dutch side in Sweden next week.
Mourinho told MUTV: “I will analyse the individual performances of the players and try to understand who can give me a little bit more for the final.
“Of course I have in my mind already what I think is going to be the team, but the players can influence decisions with positive or negative performances.”
Manchester United finished fifth and won the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal last season.
