Jose Mourinho ponders fielding under-23 side against Crystal Palace

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he is "very happy" with his players after a draw against Swansea in Old Trafford. Very happy. I can not demand anything more from them.

United were held by Swansea at the weekend in what was their tenth home draw of the season. United started the game on the back-foot, clearly exhausted as Swansea made the most of possession creating a couple of very decent chances via Llorente combining with the midfielders.

The Red Devils' treatment room is already oversubscribed, while Marouane Fellaini is one game through a three-game Premier League ban, leaving Mourinho unhappy with the demands on his Champions League-chasing team.

"It's hard enough conceding a goal at that point of the game because it changes the whole complexion, and the fact the penalty was unjustly awarded as well showed that we've got character". Another avenue to the Champions League is through the Europa League in which Celta Vigo stand in the way of the final.

"Before that we play Southampton two days before and, with all respect, we would be playing in disaster consequences".

And on Sunday they then have to take on top four rivals Arsenal knowing defeat would leave them struggling to beat Liverpool and Manchester City to secure a to four spot.

While the 35-year-old is facing nine months on the sidelines after sustaining the damaging setback last month, it didn't paint a positive picture as it threatened to cut short his career with his United contract coming to an end this summer. It shows you're successful, and if United could play 63, 64 games this season, a year ago they played 59.

The team has to do a lot more with the likes of Pogba, Mkhitaryan, Martial, Ibrahimovic in the ranks - you're expected to do bigger things and get silverware - agreed. "Virtually anyone on this planet could knock one down, but building a new one in its place is much harder and we are waiting to see what Mourinho can do at United. Lukasz was furious. He said, "I've gone down to get hands on the ball, I can see I can't get it and I've come away from it, but he's gone down before the contact".
