Eric Bailly could face extended ban after Europa League dismissal

United saw their slim hopes of qualifying for the Champions League via a top-four Premier League finish extinguished once and for all this afternoon as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur.

United were the sideshow on Sunday as Spurs bid farewell to White Hart Lane and rubber stamped second spot - their highest finish since 1963.

"In the Premier League, we can only finish fifth or sixth, I think".

"So I don't think that way, but if I was on your side, in your chair... yeah [it's fair]". Moreover, United were besieged with injury troubles and Mourinho made it clear that it was impossible to fight on two fronts with just 15 players. We had put chances to get a different result.

If United win the Europa League then the Premier League would have five entrants into next season's Champions League, with the top-flight's fourth-placed team required to go through a play-off before reaching the group stage.

Explaining his decision, Mourinho insisted he will continue to make major changes for each of the club's last three league matches up until the final against Ajax in 10 days. "It's not possible to do it [play] every three days".

Meanwhile, 41-year-old German Felix Brych has been given the task of officiating the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Juventus in Cardiff on June 3. I never saw in all my career two goalkeepers to be so friendly, because it is a position where you always have a little bit of rivalry, especially if you are both the same kind of level. We're speaking about the Argentina national goalkeeper and Spain national goalkeeper.

"When people say that we gamble by going for the Europa League, well we didn't gamble", he told Sky Sports.

Celta had United on edge throughout and had substitute Claudio Beauvue shot rather than crossed when he found himself six yards from goal in stoppage time, they might have gone through.

"I didn't see the red card incident but Eric was phenomenal".
