Sam Allardyce has confirmed he would've been happy to move Crystal Palace's game with Manchester United to help them in their bid to win the Europa League.

"So I think after the moment Crystal Palace beat Hull City and Hull City is relegated, and Swansea is safe, I think in that moment, the match has to be Saturday".

Ajax will go into the final 10 days on from their previous fixture, the 3-1 win at Willem II that wrapped up their league campaign.

"I never saw that with Chelsea, I never saw that with Manchester United, I never saw that with Manchester City past year".

The Argentine worldwide has impressed manager Jose Mourinho this season as a more than able deputy to De Gea - so much so that he is set to earn a new contract in the coming weeks.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is hopeful that the club will retain goalkeeper David De Gea, who he rates as "the top in the world".

"The one that I really enjoy doing is the transition from the first to the second season because I know what I do, I know what I don't do".

"I think if a team goes to the Champions League and then doesn't qualify, they should go home, they shouldn't have the opportunity to play in the Europa League".

"I hope that Big Sam shows he's a good friend and they go slow".

Mourinho also revealed the strategy for the upcoming home game.

He said: "This season we are not close to winning the league".

Demetri Mitchell, Axel Tuanzebe, Eric Bailly and Scott McTominay should all start. We trained with 24 players today, with no one injured so instead of looking at United, I look at my team.

"Any team has a debrief at the end of the season and this is normal but the end of the season is after the last game", said Puel, 55. There are clubs with more stability than us, better squads, more time to work.

"And now with the confidence that Jose gives me, the confidence the players give me and the confidence I have, this is very important and I will try and do my best for for the team". Pogba will come because he's not training or playing since his dad passed away and I will put two or three of my boys in, rotating during the game and making changes.
