Sidelined Manchester United star Ibrahimovic still making a splash

Having missed out on the top four, United will be under heavy pressure to see off Ajax and in turn secure their place in the Champions League next season.

With United due to face Ajax in the Europa League final on Wednesday, Mourinho made no attempt to hide his desire to keep his key players fresh for the Stockholm showpiece. "It's the last game of the season and we were given a chance to impress". Now we are playing in the Europa League and if we win it as I did a few years ago [with Chelsea], it's a double bonus, as it's a trophy and a Champions League spot, so it's very important for us. "We like to play good football and hope to win".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho's freakish post-match press conference lasted less than 30 seconds as he arrived in a near deserted room and left before any questions could be asked.

Given the millions in prize money up for grabs that was little surprise, yet the way the hosts' callow side bossed much of the game did.

On an afternoon that some suggested could be his final competitive United appearance at Old Trafford, the 31-year-old received a standing ovation as he was replaced by 16-year-old Angel Gomes - the first Premier League player to have been born in the 21st century.

The Portuguese named the youngest United team in Premier League history, with four players being handed full debuts in Joel Pereira, Demetri Mitchell, Scott McTominay and Josh Harrop.

And Herrera insists that he is not even entertaining the prospect of Manchester United not beating Ajax on Wednesday night in Sweden.

Jones has suffered another injury-troubled season, starting only 24 of United's 63 games in all competitions, but Mourinho has generally been impressed with the his commitment levels.

Herrera has shown his gratitude to Mourinho by repeatedly defending his manager in a hard season, with the run to the Europa League final and the League Cup triumph the saving graces of a campaign that has fallen well short of expectations.

The Eagles have never won at Old Trafford in the Premier League and despite the team sheets, might not find it so easy. They always help me and they make sure I improve all the time and get better each day.

"It was how I developed into the person and player I am now". I think lots of them together, no.
