Goal.com logo Goal.com 14-05-2017

Jose Mourinho has elected to shuffle his pack for Manchester United's meeting with Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane, with a defensive back three expected to line up for the final game at the 118-year-old stadium.

Wayne Rooney will captain the side, while it appears that the Portuguese will play with a stacked back line containing Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones in the centre and Axel Tuanzebe and Daley Blind as wing-backs.

Rooney could start from a deeper role than he has normally employed under Mourinho as United rest a number of key first-teamers ahead of the Europa League final against Ajax and also give a period of compassionate leave to Paul Pogba after the death of his father on Friday.

For Spurs, Dele Alli and Harry Kane will be the ones to watch as the club say goodbye to White Hart Lane before moving to Wembley next season ahead of their new stadium being built in time for 2018-19.

Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Wanyama, Eriksen, Son, Alli, Kane. Subs: Vorm, Walker, Wimmer, Dembele, Sissoko, Nkoudou, Janssen.

Manchester United XI: De Gea; Tuanzebe, Jones, Smalling, Bailly, Blind; Rooney, Carrick, Mata; Lingard, Martial. Subs: Romero, Darmian, McTominay, Mitchell, Rashford, Herrera, Mkhitaryan.
