Palace edged a quiet second half, Christian Benteke hitting the post with a header as they failed to find a way back into the game.

"I have seen in the football media that certain pundits can not understand why our players are exhausted", wrote Mourinho.

At the end of the first half, Michael Carrick came on for Pogba and moments later Anthony Martial entered for Lingard.

Jose Mourinho talked about winning the title at his unveiling in the summer, but his team never managed to find lasting consistency in the Premier League despite the expensive additions of Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

"I will bring in (Demitri) Mitchell, (Scott) McTominay, of course Axel (Tuanzebe), of course Eric Bailly, (Matty) Willock will come too, Josh Harrop will come, Zachary (Dearnley) will come", the 54-year-old said.

After just 14 minutes, 21-year-old midfielder Harrop, who had already enjoyed a couple of exciting forays down the left flank, raced onto a superb through ball from Pogba.

After his side played a boring goalless draw on Wednesday night against Southampton, Mourinho also asked the coach of Crystal Palace Sam Allardyce to go easy in the match. Now, preparation begins for United's serious business of the Europa League final.

"I am proud I reached the level to play for Manchester United".

Demetri Mitchell has spoken out about making his senior debut during Manchester United's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday.

"Obviously there is a big difference of quality, strength, experience between them and good players, experienced players like Crystal Palace have". The hardest bit is the beginning, the turnaround, the time and hours and days you spend to try to reverse what is a difficult situation, behind the scenes and on the pitch.

On an afternoon that some suggested could be his final competitive United appearance at Old Trafford, the 31-year-old received a standing ovation as he was replaced by 16-year-old Angel Gomes - the first Premier League player to have been born in the 21st century.

The 21-year-old England youth worldwide took control of a brilliantly delivered long ball from Paul Pogba and worked some individual magic inside the box to create space for a well-placed right-footed shot that Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey watched sail into the far corner.
