Europa final would be 'perfect' end to season, says Mourinho

Ibrahimovic is United's top scorer this season, with 17 goals in the Premier League, while Rojo has established himself at the heart of United's defence. We need everyone we can. "The reality is Sergio is very stable, is very experienced, is playing very well".

Henrikh Mkhitaryan's goal in Brussels has given the hosts the advantage and Mourinho has named an attacking lineup for tonight's return leg. United will be in a jubilant mood following their 2-0 win over Chelsea and we can expect them to come down hard on the Belgian side as seek a spot in the semi-finals. "We don't have many players".

And Mourinho doesn't want his players to be overconfident in spite of their impressive showing against the league leaders just four days ago.

"We are together now for nearly 10 months and the same way I know the players much better now, the players should know me also much better now", said Mourinho, who opted for Jesse Lingaard and Rashford in attack against Chelsea.

Rashford featured heavily as United beat Chelsea 2-0 in the Premier League last Sunday, scoring after only eight minutes at Old Trafford.

"I know we are together for nearly 10 months", Mourinho told a news conference when asked if he was happy with Martial's performances. "We're not very reassured about how things are going to go".

After enduring some struggles this season, the 19-year-old is now well and truly generating excitement again.

History is firmly on United's side having not lost a European game at home since a narrow 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid in 2013 - a run spanning 16 matches.

Foster doesn't know what any of this will mean to his draft stock, but he embraces the possibility that he'll slide. Teams have already spoken to him about the company he chooses to keep. "At college, my teammates became my family".

Rashford was one of many in red whose performances stood out last weekend, alongside Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo, but there was one aspect of his game that intrigued supporters.
