Afterwards, Mourinho confirmed that he would involve even more youngsters in the final match of the season against Palace.

The manager has made little secret of the fact his priority has always been next Wednesday's fixture, which after the EFL Cup could secure their second major trophy of the season and qualification for next season's Champions League.

"I never look at coaches from other teams", he added.

"I don't go with (Romero can replace De Gea) "if he leaves" because I hope he doesn't", he said.

Mourinho is also guaranteed to finish his first United season with fewer league victories than either of his two maligned predecessors, David Moyes and Louis van Gaal, mustered in the previous three seasons.

And Goal understands that Madrid - who motivated Chelsea and United's interest in Oblak with their reported interest in Thibaut Courtois and David de Gea - are ready to consider an offer for the 24-year-old as an alternative to current No. 1 Keylor Navas.

"I'm yet to be convinced by that".

Jose Mourinho encourages his team during Man United's 0-0 draw with Southampton. I hope the fans at Old Trafford support the team, they forgive some naivety, they forgive some lack of confidence.

Romero insisted after his star turn that the Europa League final in Stockholm is the club's biggest match of the season.

Sam Allardyce says he will name his strongest possible team to face Man Utd on Sunday but will have to cope without Andros Townsend.

United could have opened the scoring against the run of play just after the hour mark, only for Juan Mata to shoot over following more fine hold-up play from Rooney.

Southampton struggled to relieve the pressure building on manager Claude Puel against an under-strength United. "I think after the moment Crystal Palace beat Hull City [last Sunday] and Hull City is relegated and Swansea is safe - in that moment, our match has to be Saturday. He's a very good goalkeeper so we're in safe hands".

'But I need to give a little structure of four or five of my boys to give some stability to the kids, because I don't think the kids by themselves would be in the condition to play the game'.

Paul Pogba will also have a role to play as he needs match practice ahead of the Europa League final after being absent in recent days following the death of his father.
