Paul Pogba absent as Manchester United travel to Tottenham

"I don't think Paul has conditions to play, we let him be completely free when he's ready to be back".

United have never won the Europa League and are bidding to reach a first continental final since their 3-1 loss to Barcelona at Wembley in the deciding match of the 2010-11 Champions League. We won a Community Shield.

Mourinho has made no secret of his desire to win the Europa League (and the Champions League qualification that comes with the title), and his Premier League selections might become increasingly unusual as he seeks to rest and protect the players he wants for the final against Ajax. After Ajax player Donny van de Beek hit the crossbar, two substitutes managed to cut the deficit in aggregate to one goal for Lyon with nine minutes remaining, as Rachid Ghezzal headed Maciej Rybus' left-wing cross into the net.

"Of course, I have in my mind already what I think is going to be the team but the players can influence decisions with positive or negative performances".

With Mourinho having publicly abandoned hope of a top-four finish in the Premier League, after his side fell four points off the Champions League berths, United's season would have effectively been over had they gone out.

Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) and Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Tex.) are on the shortlist to replace fired FBI Director James Comey. Mr Comey's associates said the new President requested the dinner he described. "It was all him", Spicer said about Rosenstein.


United can not finish below sixth this season, no matter what happens in their remaining three fixtures.

"At the end of the day, if we go to Old Trafford and score the first goal, we are in the driving seat because if we score another one, they have to score two". "They played the game really well, responded well to the atmosphere and I've told them they will get another chance".

Mourinho has warned changes will be afoot regardless of Palace's situation by then and suggests rotation is also on the cards for their final two away games, starting at White Hart Lane on Sunday. I have to play them by periods and I don't have another solution. I don't think we can finish seventh or we can finish fourth, so fifth or sixth. "If we win the trophy, David wins the trophy too".

After securing their place in the Europa League final, United will end the season having played 64 games.

"So if we can win a third title, or like you like to say a second title, if we can do that it would be magnificent for us because we know that it's a big objective".
