"We can feel shame after this game because we had many opportunities in the second half", he said".

"It is frustrating for me and I hope you don't kill me when you see my team". "David is top of the world and obviously we want to keep him". "So after the moment Palace beat Hull and Hull are relegated, and Swansea is safe, in that moment the match has to be Saturday, in any country in the world it would be Saturday".

"I hope not", he smiled when asked of the possible bruising. European opponents, I've noticed, struggle to understand Fellaini's style, nearly as if they're encountering a new species for the first time, and his bombastic presence against Ajax could very easily lob a spanner in the works, as they say.

José Mourinho, United coach I think we worked well, we played well; we could have lost as Romero made some incredible saves but we could have won as we had probably the two biggest chances.

None were more important than Romero's penalty save in the second half.

"I think we deserved to score".

The Portuguese said: "I hope the fans at Old Trafford on Sunday the support the team; they forgive naivety and some lack of confidence".

Mourinho dismissed injury concerns surrounding Maroune Fellaini and Juan Mata, despite the former having a "a bad feeling in the hamstring".

Regular number one De Gea continues to be linked with Real Madrid, but Mourinho insisted he is keen to keep the Spaniard. "For this club we need the trophy". I'm happy with the individual performances, the attitude and the professionalism.

Southampton struggled to relieve the pressure building on manager Claude Puel against an under-strength United.

The closest United came to scoring was when Anthony Martial struck the post in the second half, but Southampton had had a fifth-minute penalty from Manolo Gabbiadini saved by Romero, who repeatedly frustrated the hosts.

"We needed to be clinical perhaps, but we played good football and had chances to win the game".

"I try to stay focused about our last game now", he said.
