Every Europa League game a 'final' for Man United - Shaw

Manchester United will not sell their goalkeeper David De Gea to Real Madrid despite criticism from manager Jose Mourinho. "The fans are used to having Romero in goal in the competition (the Europa League) - that becomes the most important competition for us after winning the League Cup".

"We try not to think much about it, we try to focus on our job and focus on what we love, which is playing this quarter-final".

Sergio Romero is a guaranteed starter between the sticks with David de Gea being left out due to a minor hip problem.

"End of the season is a time where players can be thinking about what is going to happen with their careers".

"If at a certain moment of the season we have no chance and we're still in the Europa League, then we have a reason".

On the flip side, Manchester United aren't where they would like to take the Premier League standings, however they have been trending in the appropriate path.

In his first press conference since returning to Manchester, the France global, who has contributed seven goals for the top-four chasing Red Devils this season, expressed his frustration at the way his performances are scrutinised.

Jose insists that United are still fighting on two fronts for Champions League qualification but feels his side can go all the way in Europe.

All coaches of the world usually have preference for players that would fit into their ideology and maintain the quality of play that they want.

The Red Devils head to Brussels to face Anderlecht in the first of two UEFA Europa League quarter-final ties, and they will do so without a few key players.

Juan Mata, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling are also out of Thursday's first leg in Belgium, where Mourinho says United need to play at their "best level" to get a positive result.

"He has a bad feeling with his ankle and he's not ready yet".

"We want to fight in the Premier League until it's mathematically impossible but the Premier League, we cannot win it, and the Europa League we can", admitted Mourinho after the Sunderland match. "It can give us the same as top four but it can give us a title".
