How to watch Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United in 2016-17 EPL

"It was so difficult, so hard for me this season, so if we manage to do that it will be wonderful".

"But for us (if we win) it's a trophy and the Champions League for next season". We won a Community Shield.

The Red Devil's secured their place in the Europa League final in dramatic fashion last night after their 2-1 aggregate win over Celta Vigo. After Ajax player Donny van de Beek hit the crossbar, two substitutes managed to cut the deficit in aggregate to one goal for Lyon with nine minutes remaining, as Rachid Ghezzal headed Maciej Rybus' left-wing cross into the net.

"What I want from the players is a good attitude, positive attitude, positive approach, team spirit, an understanding that some guys have to sacrifice themselves for the sake of others", he said.

Manchester United look set to miss out on a top four spot in the Premier League this season, meaning that their only likely way of qualifying for the Champions League would have to come through winning the Europa League.

Trips to Tottenham and Southampton are followed by Crystal Palace's visit to Old Trafford - a match that comes just three days before the Europa League final.

Mourinho said that he is "fine" with the performances of his players in what was the last ever game at White Hart Lane having once again made a host of changes to his starting XI.

Asked what his approach to selection would be, he said: "The same". I never understood if it is a draw or if they put the data in the computer, but to finish the season with four matches away from home - Arsenal, Tottenham Man City - if we were fighting for the title, what a way to fight for the title. I have to play them by periods and I don't have another solution.

"Clearly the Champions League has greater revenues, but we have designed an offset within salary costs and our bonus structure which attempts to damage the impact between being in the Champions League and being in the Europa League", he explained. I don't think we can finish seventh or we can finish fourth, so fifth or sixth.

"I think it is fair Sergio is going to play the final and David accepts, because he has already played Europa League matches and if we win the trophy, David wins the trophy".

"We gave a hard match to our opponent". We are fighting for the result. "But the match on Sunday is important for us, too".
