Mourinho mulls United changes at Arsenal

Having played Celta Vigo in Spain on Thursday the Portuguese coach has one eye on the second leg at Old Trafford as Manchester United look to defend their 1-0 advantage and reach the final.

Celta had talked about reprising their role as giant killers ahead of the tie, but they failed to come to the party of their first ever European semifinal at a packed Balaidos.

Mourinho once again hinted after the win last night that he'll rest some of his key men for the trip to north London on Sunday which may surprise some fans as United are still very-much in the fight to finish in the top four.

"He had a fantastic shot in the first half with that lovely save, and then the free kick is (a result of) work", Mourinho said of Rashford's performance. "It was difficult for both teams, it was a very hard match and both teams defended well".

Marcus Rashford struck a stunning second-half free-kick to secure a 1-0 win.

The Spaniards now lie 11th in La Liga having lost their last three domestic matches and while they are unbeaten in their last five European matches (W4 D1), they have kept just one clean sheet in six Europa League home games this season. To get to the final we have to play just as well at Old Trafford in the second leg because they always score away.

Going into the weekend one point adrift of fourth place, the Red Devils are available at 3/1 (4.00) with dabblebet to maintain their hopes of returning to Europe's top table via the Premier League with victory here. "But it's impossible not to rest players", Mourinho was quoted by the Guardian.

The only chance Celta had after the goal was an effort from Iago Aspes which went wide of the target as United closed the game down.

Jose Mourinho: "I don't think too much about the [potential] achievement. He had a fantastic shot in the first half, and then that handsome save". It would be great to close the circle and say "we are a club that has won every competition in the football world". "He loves it. Sometimes he stays behind after training to practise free-kicks. The overriding factor is that I think Rashford's here to stay".
