Ander Herrera states his prediction for Man United v Ajax

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Despite fielding a weakened side for United's final league game of the season, Mourinho clinched a 2-0 victory over Sam Allardyce's Palace.

With Wednesday's make-or-break Europa League final against Ajax looming large, Mourinho stuck to his word by resting numerous key players and handing four young prospects their full debut with sixth place 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. "We have the final, we have to make sure we win, and then I have the [under-21s] Euros, and I come back for preseason and [have to] work hard and give everything, and we will see step by step". As Mr. Jose said, the bet is made in favor of LE, and in the championship "we do not want to play".

'We know Champions League football is the end goal, but we need to earn the right to be in the Champions League and that's by winning on Wednesday night. "We like to play good football and hope to win".

Ander Herrera attracted admiration from the last four Manchester United managers, from being man-marked by Alex Ferguson to being scouted by David Moyes and signed by Louis Van Gaal, but it is under Jose Mourinho that the little Spaniard has truly thrived. 'I don't get that at all when people say he doesn't bring youth through.

United have not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson's final season in charge, the 2012-13 campaign.

- United have played Crystal Palace 16 times in the Premier League and have never lost (W13 D3), their joint-most versus a team without defeat (also Charlton).

Paul Pogba will be the only first-team regular lining up against the Eagles, along with Tim Fosu-Mensah and Axel Tuanzebe, who have both been drafted into Mourinho's side of late due to a spate of injuries. I think for the kids it will be a big occasion, it will always be good experience for them.

He told Manchester Evening News: 'He was just saying be calm, be composed and go and play your normal game and enjoy it.

It was Pogba's throughball that created the opportunity, but Harrop still had plenty to do before cutting inside past Martin Kelly and unleashing a fine finish into the far corner, the Old Trafford crowd erupting in celebration.
