Jose Mourinho has revealed that he already has a rough idea of his Manchester United starting line-up for next week’s Europa League final.

The Red Devils will have to beat Ajax in Stockholm next week if they want to play Champions League football next season after their hopes of finishing in the top four were ended by their loss to Tottenham last weekend.

Mourinho was tasked with steering Manchester United back into the Champions League when he was appointed last summer and so next Wednesday’s games is of huge significance for the Red Devils.

Manchester United will take on Crystal Palace in their final Premier League game at the weekend before turning their attentions towards their crunch clash with Ajax.

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.”
