Jose Mourinho believes Manchester United's Premier League rivals would rather be in the Europa League final than scrapping over a top-four finish.

The France midfielder is likely to return in the final league game of the season against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford ahead of next Wednesday's Europa League final against Ajax in Stockholm.

United won the League Cup in February but missed out on automatic qualification for the Champions League for 2017/18 as the club can not finish in the top four Premier League places.

We know that if we lose the final we won't play in the Champions League next season.

And Saunders thinks Mourinho is taking a risk putting all his eggs in the Europa League basket as he does not feel they will finish in the top four.

United have however done better out of the Europa League this season because other English clubs missed out on the later stages and so got a smaller share of the pooled payments. Moreover, United were besieged with injury troubles and Mourinho made it clear that it was impossible to fight on two fronts with just 15 players.

Southampton have announced the creation of a new Under-21s women's team leaving Manchester United as the only Premier League club without one.

"If I have Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, Timothy Fosu-Mensa - if I have them I can rotate". We know that, but we fight for titles.

Warren Buffett's one-word answer for why he hasn't purchased Amazon shares
Buffett told the meeting Berkshire could pay its first dividend since 1967, "reasonably soon, even while I'm around". He said it may have been harder to single people out because "we have never had more good managers".

"With two matches in hand that we had to play later". It is not possible to do it every three days.

Manchester United absorbed local women's team Corinthians in 2000 but it only lasted five years and despite persistent calls have not had any affiliation with any women's team for over a decade.

"Two bad goals conceded, but it's a positive game for us".

As well as missing out on the League Cup, Southampton will be unable to improve on the previous season's league placing ― sixth ― for the first time in eight campaigns.
