Manchester United x Crystal Palace- Game Preview

There have been more draws at Old Trafford than at any other Premier League stadium this season (10) and if this game ends as a draw then United would set a new outright record for the most home draws in a Premier League season (11).

Manchester United Manchester United will train at their own Carrington base in the morning (exact time to be confirmed), with the first 30 minutes open to the media. The Ivory Coast global could feature in the back line with Timothy Fosu-Mensah and left-back Demi Mitchell, the club's Under-23 Player of the Year.

"I don't know (whether) Wayne (will play) or not".

It's not often you'll find United at 2.3 on home soil to Palace, but Mourinho has made it clear that he's going to play a second-string side. "You will have two goalkeepers, Joel Pereira and Kieran O'Hara, we will have Demetri Mitchell, Scott McTominay, Josh Harrop, Matthew Willock, Angel Gomes and Zachary Dearnley. I think Europa League competition is for teams that go to the Europa League in the beginning like us", he said.

"Paul Pogba is fine - strong guy, strong mentality", Mourinho said. One in the middle of a good structure, an experienced structure, I think yes.

"I will bring three or four of the first-team players to play one half each one, where I can give a little bit of experience to the team but at the same time save them all for Wednesday". A problem for the weekend but not for the final.

Crystal Palace's most recent win at Old Trafford came in a League Cup quarter-final tie in November 2011.

"Marouane [Fellaini, hamstring] is the question mark, we wait for today's scans". I really don't know. "With where we are in the league now, it eats away at you that all those teams are above you and the points that you have dropped".

"When I got back from Spain, [Alex Ferguson] Fergie invited me to a game", Allardyce added. He must have a rough idea of what his Europa League final team is going to be and he should've played that.

He is finally in a position to begin his preparations for next season, when he hopes to avoid another battle against relegation, and discussing how much Sunday's game could affect that, he said: "The budget will get bigger if we can go up a couple of places".
