I won't make mistakes at Manchester United next season - Mourinho

David De Gea
Jose Mourinho has revealed Timothy Fosu-Mensah could represent a surprise "new option" as he contemplates his team selection for Wednesday's Europa League final against Ajax. "The only positive is to save my players and give them the best possible conditions to be ready for Wednesday".
In the 0-0 draw at Southampton yesterday morning (Singapore time), he again selected an understrength XI, omitting Marcus Rashford, Michael Carrick, Ander Herrera, Paul Pogba and David de Gea.
United will play their final game of the Premier League season at home to Crystal Palace on Sunday, taking on the Eredivisie side just three days later - much to the annoyance of Mourinho, who has lashed out at English football authorities for not helping his club. A strong guy, strong mentality. He is learning how to live after his father passed away but he is strong and he knows that he needs to play next Sunday because he doesn't play, doesn't train for a long time and he needs minutes on the pitch.
Fellaini limped off during the second half at St Mary's with a muscle injury. "A problem for the weekend, but not the final". Marouane Fellaini is a question mark. We wait for today's scans.
Angel Gomes, 16, and Tim Fosu-Mensah are also set to play and Pogba could well captain the side. "Wayne Rooney played 90 minutes in the last match so probably not him".
Mike Dean controversially awarded a penalty after he judged Eric Bailly to have handled inside the box, but replays clearly show the defender made contact with the ball outside of his area.
After his side played a boring goalless draw on Wednesday night against Southampton, Mourinho also asked the coach of Crystal Palace Sam Allardyce to go easy in the match.

United Kingdom unemployment hits lowest level in 42 years
The rising rate is caused by falling value of the British currency following the last year's Brexit vote, according to the ONS. Martin Beck, senior economic adviser to the EY ITEM Club, said that "real regular pay fell for the first time since late 2014".
Smalling is in line to take his place alongside Daley Blind if he can prove his fitness ahead of the trip to Sweden.
Jose Mourinho has claimed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be there for the Europa League final, along with the other injured players in the Manchester United squad.
Allardyce, asked if he too would field a weakened team were he in Mourinho's position, replied: "No doubt about that. It's all good", said Mourinho.
"I think the problem is the tag, the price tag on his back".
"I think one in the middle of a good structure, a dynamic structure, an experienced structure, I think, yes". If you look at our age, we have a really young team that has played a lot of games.
"One answer: the reality of the Premier League, the economic power in many clubs". I think they are paid not to lie they are paid to be honest and speak from their knowledge to the people that watch TV and read papers.
