Man United held by Southampton in 0-0 stalemate

Jose Mourinho is furious that the Premier League haven't rescheduled Crystal Palace clash

Sergio Romero's saves for Manchester United were the only bright spot in an otherwise dismal contest.

José Mourinho has questioned why Manchester United's final game of the Premier League season can not be brought forward by 24 hours to help them prepare better for next Wednesday's Europa League final against Ajax.

The manager has made little secret of the fact his priority has always been next Wednesday's fixture, which after the EFL Cup could secure their second major trophy of the season and qualification for next season's Champions League.

Manchester United have been handed a big boost in there hope to keep David de Gea at Old Trafford beyond this summer as Real Madrid have started to look at alternative options.

Mourinho, however, who intends to play rookie stopper Joel Pereira against Crystal Palace on Sunday and Romero in next week's Europa League final, expects De Gea to be a United player when pre-season rolls around.

"I'm yet to be convinced by that".

"It's frustrating for me". There will be some changes to the team but my team want to play at Old Trafford, they don't want me to leave them out. It's just a lost battle. I'm here (in English football) already seven years.

He also joked he hoped his "good friend" Allardyce would tell Palace to "go slow", and the Palace manager responded: "There's no doubt about that (that the game should have been moved)".

'Because it's Man United and they have the money.

Mourinho dismissed injury concerns surrounding Maroune Fellaini and Juan Mata, despite the former having a "a bad feeling in the hamstring".

Sam Allardyce says he will name his strongest possible team to face Man Utd on Sunday but will have to cope without Andros Townsend. "I believe it's important that we are there again because the financial difference between clubs in Europe and Dutch clubs is big, but we have managed it".

"We need two top goalkeepers and a top young goalkeeper and this is what we have".

Southampton struggled to relieve the pressure building on manager Claude Puel against an under-strength United.

Dean chose to play his trump card by awarding an outrageous penalty kick against United defender Eric Bailly for hand-balling outside of the 18-yard box.

"We are sixth, Crystal Palace are safe, it doesn't matter", Mourinho said. "I think we did more than OK", Mourinho said. "He's a very good goalkeeper so we're in safe hands".
