He was more likely to rest in 2-1, 1-0, 1-1, 0-0 kind of scorelines.

I don't think there's any need to rest. It would have to be disastrous to go out with this result. The time to rest would have been if we'd lost 2-1 or drew 0-0 or something.

I still think City are guaranteed top 4, just because their fixtures are so easy and generally their record is decent vs bottom teams, they even have 3 home games. Liverpool are more likely to blow it, injuries, and just more prone to those awful losses.

Regardless though it will be tough for Utd, as Utd probably need a minimum of 10 points from horrible fixtures.

The problem is, and the reason he won't do it, on top of ego reasons, if Utd say rested their players for most their league games and don't win the Europa League, Mourinho would get absolutely hammered as having thrown any chance of top 4.

But I can't look past the fact that Mourinho just won't want to lose to Wenger.

Some who've played every game recently like Bailly, Rashford, Lingard and Herrera could be rested. Even Darmian as we don't really have another left back at the moment.

Others like Mata, Pogba, Rooney, Smalling and Martial haven't played as much or at all but are still good enough to help us win. We should be trying to win every game imo until the league top 4 isn't possible.

Because generally those teams pack out defensively and we don't break them down/blow all our chances.

Ajax won't play like most the Premier League teams have vs Utd. They are likely to play attacking football as that's what they're used to and pretty much the philosophy of the club. That really is what Utd under Mourinho want to do. Utd's problem is playing teams they should comfortably beat who set up cautiously, because they never seem to score more than 1 goal vs this type of team.

Agree with your comments re Ibra n88uk.  Said for a long time on here that Ibra is part of the problem as we lose any pace in attack.  Trouble is only Rashford seems up for it.  Lingard and Martial were rubbish tonight, even Mhiki struggled imo.

Like to see Pogba a bit further forward, use his pace and power- have Carrick and Herrera behind him.
Report n88uk May 4, 2017 11:17 PM BST
We have to buy big this summer in these positions. Obviously lack of goals is a big problem, but it's more a problem vs lower down teams where we have all the ball and our dominance doesn't reflect in the scoreline (the Swansea game at the weekend is an exception to this btw, we were just terrible in that game, but we had loads of players missing there). We're very hard to beat which tends to be a good asset in European football where things are over 2 legs, obviously it's a weakness in the league when you are drawing a lot.

Might be in the minority here but I do think Griezmann would be a good buy at a sensible price, but we don't do sensible.  Plays and scores well off of a big man up front, and Jose has always liked a lump up there.  So who is he going for in the summer to replace Ibra.
Report n88uk May 4, 2017 11:26 PM BST
Sensible price should be irrelevant. It should be whether players are good enough. Prices are just up with inflation relative to revenues these days. Utd were paying 30m in the early 2000s for players, and our revenue has over trebled since then.
