Mourinho hailed his players for the attitude they showed as they came through to seal a spot in a final he feels can be a "perfect" end to the season, with Champions League football on offer for the victor in Stockholm.

The Saints are safe in mid-table, but a victory against United could see them rise above West Bromwich Albion into eighth place.

"We qualified by winning the FA Cup, and because only ourselves and Southampton went through into that first round we got a bigger share of the market pool, and also the performance of Southampton and Tottenham later on in the competition meant that we picked up a bigger share of that market pool and will do throughout the knockout stages". The Saints are now sitting in ninth place in the table and are ready to welcome Manchester United looking to avoid slipping up a couple of points lower in the table.

Winger Demetri Mitchell, Matty Willock and Matt Olosunde were also added to the group as they headed to the Landmark Hotel prior to Sunday's game.

"You always have a little bit of rivalry, especially if you are both the same kind of level". The Portuguese tactician does not hide the fact he long stopped motivating his players for the remaining Premier League matches and even went on to describe the English top flight's remaining games as "matches we don't want to play".

"You're speaking about the Argentina national goalkeeper and the Spain national goalkeeper".

Pochettino points to Chelsea spending as key to title win
Chelsea have dominated the English top flight this season, with Antonio Conte adjusting to football in this country easily . The Argentine said: "When I signed here I understood the project of Daniel Levy.the Tottenham project".

"They're obviously hurting very much in the dressing room", Berizzo said.

"But we fight for titles and probably other clubs finishing in the top four, probably they would like to be in our position to try and fight for the title". "So receipt of sponsorship next year from Adidas would be £70m if we're in the Champions League, so that would be 30% of that, so £21m reduction. I never saw a bad face".

Mourinho rested players last weekend in preparation for this game, making eight alterations to his starting line-up for the 2-0 Premier League defeat at Arsenal.

Saints boss Claude Puel will not be able to call upon injured goalkeeper Alex McCarthy and defender Virgil van Dijk. However, striker Charlie Austin is back from long-term injury and will be desperate for a start against the visitors.

"We have to remember that we scored three goals".
