Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho takes Europa League swipe at Ajax

"I hope you don't kill me when you see my team (on Sunday)".

The two England defenders are injury-free again and have been paired together in the last three Premier League matches.

"Everybody goes. We have a few on crutches", said Mourinho, when asked who was attending the final.

Palace are now 13th going into the final weekend of the season but can end up anywhere between 11th and 16th depending on how they do against United and how other results go.

"A final is a final and we have to go to the final with everything like Ajax does because they have finished the season and they do not have any more football to play until the final".

"To play so many kids at the same time I don't think it is good because there is a big difference in quality, strength and experience".

"And I hope that Big Sam (Allardyce, the Palace manager) shows he is a good friend and he goes slow".

The Portuguese believes one thing such a schedule has done is foster a bond within his squad, which is why he is so keen for Ibrahimovic and fellow injured players Ashley Young, Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo to be present.
