Paul Pogba absent as Manchester United travel to Tottenham

"I do not want to think about next season - I want to think about the final we have to play in". Mourinho said the focus on Europa was calculated, not a risk, and defies those who say otherwise. I have to play them by periods.

"We can win a trophy and by winning that trophy we can play Champions League next season". I don't think we can finish seventh and I don't think we can finish fourth. So that's the game.

We are actually getting a good enough price to bet on Spurs to win outright in this game and that is by far the best bet we can find. We got no injuries. "And that's what we are going to do", he added.

"And because we go with everything on Thursday and we cannot go with everything against Tottenham".

United boss Jose Mourinho has already selected the goalkeeper to start ahead of final clash with Ajax as he has two world-class stoppers to choose from.

United has one Premier League match left before the big final against Ajax, a Dutch side which played the youngest side in league history on Sunday.

"And if he doesn't play the final, he has to play the remaining matches in the Premier League and give rest to some of the others". This game will not mean a lot to Mourinho as he showed in his last few games so I am expecting a weaker side on the pitch so it seems unlikely the Red Devils will have what it takes in them to win this game.

As mentioned by the decorated Portuguese manager, the victor secures a Champions League berth, an incentive that was introduced at the beginning of the 2015/16 competition which Sevilla won.
