Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho revealed four United stars who will start in the final Premier League match of the season against Watford on Sunday at Old Trafford.

Mourinho’s boys failed to take their chances in their tie with West Ham at Olympic Stadium last Thursday leaving the match to end in a barren draw, however, it was enough for them to secure second place in the table.

In a post-match press conference after the West Ham match, Mourinho revealed that Michael Carrick will captain United in his final game at Old Trafford before retirement.

United second-choice keeper Sergio Romero will also play in goal against Watford with De Gea rested after claiming his first Golden Glove after keeping 18 clean sheet this season.

Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford will also come back in the starting lineup after failing to start against West Ham. Rashford  was used as substitute while Martial got zero minutes on Thursday but have a chance to convince Mourinho that he is worth staying at Old Trafford.

Mourinho was quoted by The Mirror saying, “Romero plays on Sunday because he deserves that and some other players are going to play because we as a team achieve the second position and we as a team are going to play the FA Cup final.

“It is normal that Michael Carrick is captain at Old Trafford for the last game of his career. David De Gea will be rested, so it gives a chance for Sergio Romero to play. I can make changes.

“Marcus and Anthony played against Brighton. Today it was for Alexis and Lingard to play and Sunday is again for Martial and Rashford.” He added

United will go to the match to secure the three points ahead of the FA Cup final match against Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday 19 this month.
