Mourinho made the announcement following the 2-0 defeat away to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

"I analyse the individual performances of the players, try to understand who can give me a little bit more for the final".

"I think it's unusual because someone asked me about speculation and all of the questions about how I will improve the club", Puel said.

"They've been the most consistent team in the league and thanks to that they were able to celebrate the title last Friday after defeating West Brom, so my honest congrats to them".

"So if we can win a third title, or like you like to say a second title, if we can do that it would be magnificent for us because we know that it's a big objective".

United close out the Premier League season with matches against Southampton and Crystal Palace.

José Mourinho is understandably a frustrated man at present.

Commenting on the game, Mourinho described Sunday's game as "important" for preparing his players for their final games of the season. "There are two games to play and we want to finish on a good feeling".

"Players were in different positions", Mourinho concluded. "There was no concentration and no focus". Nobody can play two big competitions with 15 players and this is what we have at the time.

Southampton, who won 2-1 at relegated Middlesbrough on Sunday, are in a straight shootout for eighth place with West Bromwich Albion, who now lead them on goal difference. "I don't know when we would be playing that game".

"We have the Ajax way of playing football".

"The last month or so we have been disappointed and we are hurting from that", said Evans.

Mourinho wants to win both league matches but is not getting strung up on the outcome, given victory against Ajax is the overriding goal.
