Man United, Southampton play out goalless draw

19 May 2017

'The team wasn't ideal but individually they gave me good things.

With United manager Jose Mourinho again resting many of his starters for next Wednesday's Europa League final against Ajax Amsterdam in Stockholm, the visitors were on the back foot for much of the contest.

Romero, second choice to David De Gea in the Premier League but preferred in Europe's second-tier competition throughout the season, seems to have cemented his place for the showdown in Sweden's capital.

Romero will start in the final of the competition against Ajax on May 24, and he was given a rare league outing at Southampton on Wednesday, pulling off a string of fine saves, including a penalty from Manolo Gabbiadini.

Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry is 'greatest witch hunt' in history, says Trump
On Tuesday, Trump repeatedly mispronounced the name of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as Erdogan stood beside him. The Justice Department on Wednesday appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to lead the investigation.

Mourinho said after Southampton that he saw no point in making a last-minute plea to league chiefs to move the game and plans to blood several youngsters against Palace. "They showed me they want to be an option for the (Europa League) final".

"It's a shame I think because in the first half we had good play without quality or intensity and the second half it was better with possibilities and opportunities".

The result had no material impact on United's season, given they were already guaranteed to finish sixth, and means Mourinho's men have now drawn 15 times this season.

Mourinho-coached United are set to play the last match of this season's EPL campaign at home with Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Mourinho also revealed the strategy for the upcoming home game.

After sizing up Cedric's crossfield pass as it sailed towards him, Bailly inexplicably chose to control it using his upper left arm and although he was outside the box, referee Mike Dean pointed to the spot.

Anthony Martial came closest to scoring for United, curling a shot against the post in the 71st minute.

"Whoever plays in the final is good enough to go out there and win the game".

That's what I will try', said Thiem, who this week wasn't followed by his coach Gunter Bresnik, who will return with him in Rome. But in December or January, I was not expecting to play badly, because I knew I was doing a very good off-season.
