KEY PLAYERS WILL BE GIVEN REST AGAINST ARSENAL-MOURINHO

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he will rest players for Sunday’s Premier League trip to Arsenal.

United’s 1-0 Europa League semi-final first-leg win at Celta Vigo on Thursday was their 10th game since 1 April.

With Mourinho’s side lying fifth in the Premier League, the Europa League could represent their best chance of reaching next season’s Champions League.

“The players that have accumulated lots of minutes are not going to play next weekend,” said Mourinho.

Marcus Rashford’s free-kick gave United victory in Spain, along with an away goal to take back to Old Trafford for next Thursday’s second leg.
