Mourinho needs to consider axing these 2 players from tonight’s Man Utd starting XI v Ajax

After a season of work, it all comes down to this for Man Utd – and the fans in the Transfer Tavern are growing increasingly anxious…

Jose Mourinho has repeatedly prioritised the Europa League over the Premier League this season, and so far, this is a decision that has worked out well. Having comfortably secured their route through to the final, Man Utd are just 90 minutes of football away from the prospect of securing Champions League qualification ahead of next season – and the pressure is really on.

Mourinho, though, is a manager that thrives on pressure, and so the Portuguese will likely be looking forward to the event. Make no mistake, if the Red Devils lose, the buck will stop with the manager – and so he desperately needs to make a few big calls this evening.

He has utilised a fairly similar first team for much of the campaign, barring a few occasional surprises, and it has worked so far. This game, however, represents a different challenge – and a few major changes could help give his side the edge.
