Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has named his side to take on Ajax in the last game of the season - the UEFA Europa League final.

Although the build-up to the showpiece match in Stockholm has been completely overshadowed by events in Manchester, the excitement is building at the Friends Arena.

Chris Smalling gets the nod to partner Daley Blind at the heart of the defence with Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini also in the XI.

Right-back Antonio Valencia captains the side and Sergio Romero, as suggested some time ago by the boss, starts in goal. Tim Fosu-Mensah edged Axel Tuanzebe for the last spot on the bench.

Man United: Romero; Valencia (c), Smalling, Blind, Darmian; Herrera, Fellaini; Mkhitaryan, Pogba, Mata; Rashford. Subs: De Gea, Fosu-Mensah, Jones, Carrick, Lingard, Martial, Rooney.

Ajax XI: Onana; Veltman, Sanchez, de Ligt, Riedewald; Schone, Klaassen (c), Ziyech; Dolberg, Traore, Younes. Subs: Boer, Tete, Westermann, de Jong, van de Beek, Kluivert, Neres.
