Josh Harrop left delighted after netting in United debut

Even MUTV, the most friendly of broadcasters in dealing with the club, was not immune from Mourinho's policy as he snapped: "I'm in a final, let me go home, I'm in a final".

"They're nice words and now I need to prove that he's right", he said.

Mourinho's men are already assured of finishing sixth so the United boss will turn to a string of young players for a match that will see Pereira make his first start.

Jose Mourinho was keen to make a swift exit following Manchester United 2-0 win against Crystal Palace, saying that he wanted to focus on Wednesday's Europa League final against Ajax.

Manchester United's Josh Harrop celebrates scoring his side's first goal of the game during the English Premier League soccer match between Manchester United and Crystal Palace, at Old Trafford, in Manchester, England, Sunday, May 21, 2017. The hardest bit is the beginning, the turnaround, the time and hours and days you spend to try to reverse what is a difficult situation, behind the scenes and on the pitch. With the Europa League final against Ajax in mind, Mourinho gave unlikely starts to the likes of Scott McTominay, Axel Tuanzebe, Demetri Mitchell, goalkeeper Joel Castro Pereira and the aforementioned Harrop.

Paul Pogba provided the second as Wayne Rooney played what could be his last ever game in front of the Stretford End.

"They're a Champions League team, they come from the Champions League". Strong guy. Strong mentality.

Marouane Fellaini is having a hamstring injury assessed, while Chris Smalling is set to be fit for Wednesday's final despite a "small problem" keeping him out against Palace.

The Portuguese also spoke of the "unbelievable" fixture schedule and took aim at those that "like to lie" about United's situation. Surely it will be his last game for United at Old Trafford.

Manchester United's youngsters stepped up to the plate impressively against Crystal Palace - but Jose Mourinho was in too much of a hurry to offer praise. "When I know that the battle is lost, I don't fight it", Jose added. The way he was surrounded by exciting youth only seemed to emphasise the feeling that the 31-year-old is yesterday's man - and it was quite a moment when he was substituted late on, to a rapturous reception, for Gomes, a player he is nearly twice as old as.
