Mourinho likely to rest a few first team players for Arsenal tie

Pogba, Bailly boost for Man United

Marcus Rashford scored a stunning free-kick midway through the second half to put Manchester United on the brink of reaching the Europa League final with a 1-0 win at Celta Vigo on Thursday.

Lastly, if United finish fourth, to give them a place in the play-offs, and also win the Europa League, they would still have to go through a play-off and fifth place in the Premier League would not be promoted.

"They are a good team, they can play, they have good players".

Considering they have won just four of their last 11 league fixtures, odds of 3/4 (1.75) certainly seem generous on Arsenal failing to overcome Manchester United yet again here.

"Let's hope next week that Old Trafford wants us to win because when Old Trafford wants, we win".

"At the end of the day it's a set-piece that gets us", said the Swedish global.

Mourinho said: 'The players that are in accumulation, the players that are with lots of minutes because we played nine matches in April and this one, so 10 matches in four-and-a-half weeks. "He had a fantastic chance in the first half that forced a attractive save".

They were words that were clearly created to fire United fans into life as Mourinho's side look to make a final step into the Europa League final, with an injury problem to match-winner Rashford one of the concerns coming out of the game. This is a great opportunity for United as they would looking forward to taking that lead in this first leg of the fixture.

We are not going to Arsenal to say "beat us" or 'beat us 5-0 or 6-0.' We are going there to fight for a result.

"You could see they made 15, 20 minutes (at the end) be three minutes of football".

'Seeing Celta's trajectory in the Europa League, they definitely deserve respect for the second leg.

"The most important thing is to be ready for the occasion and to cope well with the moment", Mourinho told MUTV.

"So for me not a problem at all and I think he will be really pleased with me that I am going to change my team against Arsenal".

"We have confidence in the fact our attack is freed".
