Youth movement sees Manchester United finish Premier League season with victory

Youth movement sees Manchester United finish Premier League season with victoryā€¯

It was a peculiar end to a game when United's young players deserved praise. "I hope next summer he's not anymore the highest transfer fee and the pressure can go on somebody else because if his transfer fee was half of it, everybody was saying: "what a buy".

Former Manchester United and Ajax goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar admits Jose Mourinho's side will get more support at the Friends Arena on Wednesday because of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

United's performance belied the starting line-up's tender average age of 22 years 284 days, with Harrop marking his first appearance with a superb effort that kicked off a surprisingly comfortable 2-0 win against Palace.

When then asked if he knew his team for the clash in Stockholm, Mourinho replied: 'I know, but let me go. I think a team shouldn't play two European competitions in the same season.

A pundit is not honest if they can not forget their colours or if they try to hide the truth from their audience. "It's not my fault if their managerial career was poor".

Joel Pereira, Kieran O'Hara, Demetri Mitchell, Scott McTominay, Josh Harrop, Matthew Willock, Zachary Dearnley and Angel Gomes are all set to feature at Old Trafford, in what will be a baptism of fire for the youth players.

Paul Pogba has not trained or featured since his father passed away before United's defeat at Tottenham, but Mourinho says the midfielder will at least travel with the squad.

Stocks sell off on Trump concern; dollar at Nov low
The S&P 500 financial sector .SPSY tumbled more than 3 percent, led by losses in Bank of America BAC.N and JPMorgan JPM.N . President Donald Trump, gave back all of its "Trump bump" and wallowed near its lowest levels since November 9.

At a conservative estimate the game is worth at least 70 million pounds to Manchester United, whilst player wages next season depend on victory over a young Ajax side.

Unfortunately Mourinho passed up the chance to give his public seal of approval to the youngsters who stepped up to the plate and ensured a disappointing Premier League season ended on a winning note.

The starting line up is United's youngest in the history of the Premier League and would be just 21.5 years if it wasn't for club captain Wayne Rooney playing what could be his last home game for the club.

Palace edged a quiet second half, Christian Benteke hitting the post with a header as they failed to find a way back into the game. Now, preparation for United's serious business of the Europa League final starts.

"I said to myself, I want to get on the ball early and get as many touches as I can".

The hosts finish the season sixth in the table on 69 points, while Palace drop to 14th on 41.
