Jose Mourinho calls up 10 teens who 'aren't ready yet'

With Jose Mourinho keen to keep all of his senior players fresh for next Wednesday's Europa League final against Ajax, it seemed unlikely Rooney would be called upon to be involved in three games across just seven days.

Palace have lost 12 times to United in the Premier League, more than any other side they've faced. When United's long-term No.3 keeper Sam Johnstone insisted it was time for him to be selfish by looking for work away from M16, Pereira was recalled from his homeland in order to work more closely with De Gea and Romero.

This will be a match for youngsters to get some Premier League minutes under their belt and could dictate their futures.

But Mourinho is also determined to ensure that he has a world-class replacement ready should Real come in for De Gea, and he has identified Oblak as his No. 1 choice.

Manchester United have been having ups and downs this season. He has bagged four league goals in 10 matches and also grabbed a brace against Manchester United in the EFL Cup final. We had a fantastic record of 25 matches.

It's suggested that the 23-year-old is a prime candidate along with Oblak to fill De Gea's shoes once he leaves, although the Red Devils could face competition from Manchester City for his signature this summer.

United had their defence and more importantly their goalkeepers Sergio Romero, who had an awesome game as he kept out Manolo Gabbiadini's penalty and made a number of saves to keep his side in the game. "He played 90 minutes in the last game [against Southampton], so probably not".

Meanwhile United will be in all-blue as they seek to secure another trophy and Champions League action for next season. I just thought it was going to be a discussion about how we navigate through it.

"I will put two or three of my boys rotating during the game".

"In my personal analysis, I don't think that way".

Clubs are in danger of breaching rules if they select players from outside their 25-man Premier League squads. A win will not mean much to this side but they are a better team and I am sure that in the back of their minds they will want to win this game and give the Old Trafford fans something to cheer about.
