Josh Harrop left delighted after netting in United debut

The Man United manager said he would rotate heavily ahead of the Europa League final, given the fatigue in his squad: this game is their 63rd of the season.

Play was now slow and stretched at Old Trafford, which witnessed history in the 88th minute as Rooney was withdrawn and replaced by debutant Gomes.

After another tiresome draw against Southampton on Wednesday night, it was confirmed that Manchester United would win fewer league fixtures this year than they have in any other Premier League season and were guaranteed to finish sixth in the table.

But it is claimed that two things must happen in order for Manchester United to be able to sign Griezmann.

"They fought to be in the final and they are there for a reason", he says.

He added: "It's a defining moment in our season - we need to make sure we win".

He put in a man-of-the-match performance against Tottenham U23s on Monday - in front of Jose Mourinho - which led to his selection for United's final league game of the season.

"But I can understand the lads' tiredness - we've had a lot of games".

Manchester United will finish an underwhelming Premier League season against Sam Allardyce's Crystal Palace on Sunday at Old Trafford.

"I've said all along that whoever plays will go out and do the job to the best of their ability".

Speaking about Mourinho after the Southampton match, Souness said: "The last thing I would want is a manager continuously telling me I'm exhausted". Still, I feel I've had a good season.

Three wins from his three opening league games gave United supporters hope and there's no denying that Mourinho benefited from having a core group of players to work with over the summer.

A youthful Manchester United side finished off a rather disappointing Premier League campaign for the club with a 2-0 win against Crystal Palace, with debutante Josh Harrop and Paul Pogba both getting on the scoresheet.

Seventeen-year-old defender Matthijs de Ligt could become the youngest player ever to take the field in a European final, less than a year after he was lining up in Ajax's youth team against Emmen in the Jupiler League.

He told Manchester Evening News: 'He was just saying be calm, be composed and go and play your normal game and enjoy it.

'It's always hard but we've got a huge game Wednesday that we need to prepare right for and go out and do a job. He's shown great belief in them and they've proved him right.
