The Portuguese boss had rested key players in the 2-0 Premier League defeat at the Emirates as he prioritised progressing past Celta Vigo in the second leg of the Europa League semi-final instead.
Despite falling further away from a top-four finish in the Premier League, the side are favourites to win the Europa League, even more so after prioritising the competition which could give them a path back into Champions League football ahead of next season.
Here’s a look at the players hard at work in training ahead of the clash at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
It’s a shame that United weren’t able to keep up the results in the Premier League as a top four finish would be very hard to reach at this moment in time, but it’s clear Mourinho believes the team are capable of winning the Europa League.
With a 1-0 lead over Celta Vigo thanks to Marcus Rashford‘s brilliant free-kick in Spain, Mourinho will be confident that his side can go out and finish the job, especially with many first-team players at top fitness.
