What are they saying?

Mourinho said of United's injury problems:

“I want to wait but my feeling is not good for both [Ibrahimovic and Rojo]. I want to wait and be optimistic but I’m not.

“[Defensively] we have Daley Blind, he has experience in the position and I think it’s time for Jones and Smalling to be brave, to risk, because for the team they have to do everything. You cannot do miracles. Miracles I don’t expect but you have to try to do everything to accelerate the process.

"If it was me, I think it should be tomorrow. They cannot make miracles, even with a crazy mentality they cannot play Sunday [against Burnley], there are no miracles. But with a special spirit you can come back sooner than the  expected – so rather than mid-May they can come back the beginning of May.”

What are the odds?

Burnley win: 6/1
Draw: 3/1
Man Utd win: 4/7

What's our prediction?

A tricky turn around for Manchester United after their Europa League win against Anderlecht on Thursday night. Will fatigue kick in a week after their brilliant win over Chelsea? We're going for a 0-0 blank.
