Jose Mourinho explains his Manchester United team selection against Tottenham Hotspur

19 May 2017

Speaking after Sunday's 2-1 defeat to Tottenham at White Hart Lane - the last game played at the historic ground - Mourinho admitted to reporters that finishing in the top four was no longer priority. If they win they will finish with three trophies, two major ones, as well as a spot in next season's Champions League, making what has been a hard season look significantly better.

"Today was a hard game but we want to move on", continued Blind, who will be given the night off after Mourinho confirmed he would be rested.

Jose Mourinho is not upset to have missed out on a top-four spot, saying winning titles like the Europa League has always been more important to Manchester United.

WikiLeaks tweeted: "UK refuses to confirm or deny whether it has already received a U.S. extradition warrant for Julian Assange ". However, British police say Assange still faces arrest for jumping bail if he leaves the Ecuadorean embassy in London.

"[Daley] Blind had to play 90 minutes but the next match is for Blind to rest and we have to go like this, step by step, to rest people", Mourinho said after the loss against Tottenham in the final game at White Hart Lane, as quoted on United's official site.

"We put players back in the right positions".

"I am fine with what we had in terms of individual performances", he said. "There are two games to play and we want to finish on a good feeling".

"We are going to do this in this last week, these last three matches we are going to try not to accumulate too many minutes with any one of the players".

David de Gea is the first choice, while Sergio Romero has been promised he will keep his position in the Europa League final against Ajax Amsterdam later this month.

Scroll through the gallery above to see how we think Manchester United will line up against Southampton - do you agree? But if everything goes normal and we have no problems, Sergio plays the final. I can not lose 5-0 or 6-0. Luck was in United's favour as they are also one step away from making it to the Champions League in the next season. For Manchester United it's more important to win titles than to finish top four. "The two goals are two very bad goals conceded but the team is not used to playing together".
