Mourinho hopeful world number one De Gea will remain at United

"I said I want to participate also on the game and this was a strong shot".

"I hope to play Joel against Crystal Palace".

With a top-four finish in England out of United's reach, winning the Europa League remains their only route to Champions League football next season and the Argentine keeper shone ahead of the club's most important game under Mourinho.

"After the moment Palace beat Hull and Hull were relegated and Swansea are safe, the match should have been moved".

"I hope not", he smiled when asked of the possible bruising. "They showed me that they want to be in the final, they want to be an option". "But I don't know about Wayne".

"The next match Joel (Pereira, United's 20-year-old third choice goalkeeper) is playing his first match in the Premier League. I think we did more than okay", he commented. I never saw. It's just a lost battle; we have to accept the way it is.

"The team wasn't flawless but individually they gave me good things".

Jose Mourinho has confirmed he does not expect David de Gea to play for Manchester United again this season, but insists he wants to keep the goalkeeper he regards as the world's best.

"I don't go with (Romero can replace De Gea) "if he leaves" because I hope he doesn't", he said. "We need two top goalkeepers and a top young goalkeeper and this is what we have". David is David and Sergio is Sergio. I'm happy with the individual performances, the attitude and the professionalism.

The closest United came to scoring was when Anthony Martial struck the post in the second half, but Southampton had had a fifth-minute penalty from Manolo Gabbiadini saved by Romero, who repeatedly frustrated the hosts.

Southampton boss Claude Puel - whose future on the south coast has been called into question -meanwhile, was left to rue his side's failure to make their domination pay.

"I think we played a good team, a good game, against a team that tried to win and tried to finish well and finish eighth".

"I try to stay focused about our last game now", he said.
