Jose Mourinho prepares to play the Manchester United kids in his 63rd game of the season

Mourinho stressed that the first season at any new club is always hard, but is more optimistic about 2017-18 after what he has learned this term. "And I hope you don't kill me when you see my team".

Jose Mourinho hopes the record fee for Paul Pogba is surpassed in the summer to take some pressure off the Man United star.

Mourinho told his prematch news conference: "Paul [Pogba] is fine, a strong guy, a strong mentality. He needs to play on Sunday", Mourinho said of the French worldwide who recently lost his father but was present at United's training session on Friday.

Speaking today, he noted that Angel Gomes, Kieran O'Hara and Timothy Fosu-Mensah would also play a part against Sam Allardyce's side alongside the previously mentioned group of youngsters.

"The team wasn't flawless but individually they gave me good things". A problem for the weekend but not for the final.

Mourinho continued to rule Chris Smalling out of Sunday's game, but not the final, while Marouane Fellaini will undergo a late fitness test. Again, his feelings aren't bad, but let's wait.

He is finally in a position to begin his preparations for next season, when he hopes to avoid another battle against relegation, and discussing how much Sunday's game could affect that, he said: "The budget will get bigger if we can go up a couple of places".

"They are a Champions League team; they come from the Champions League", Mourinho said. I think that's it, plus [Timothy] Fosu-Mensah, Axel [Tuanzabe], so lots of them.

"It will be a good occasion for the kids but I repeat the best conditions for a debut is being surrounded by a strong structure".

United head in to the final game knowing they are guaranteed to finish sixth in the Premier League so it comes as no surprise that Mourinho is focussing on Wednesday night's Europa League final against Ajax. "I will bring three or four first team players to play one half where I can give some experience to the team". Mourinho wanted the game moved, as neither United nor Palace have anything else to play for, but with that not an option, United are just going to miss it as best they can.

On skipper Wayne Rooney, he added: 'I don't know about Wayne or not - he played 90 minutes in the last match, so probably not'.
