United arrive in the capital having booked their place in the final of the Europa League on Thursday night so Jose Mourinho has made that his priority over trying to finish in the top four.

United would require two of Liverpool, Manchester City or Arsenal to slip up in their final few games of the season, and would need to win all of their matches in order to solidify a Champions League place for next term.
