Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he will prioritise the Europa League over the FA Cup.
Manchester United face Chelsea in the quarter finals of the Cup on Monday night, with the chance to join Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham in the last four.
He is already without the suspended Zlatan Ibrahimovic and injured Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial .
Marcus Rashford is another doubt with illness – but there are suggestions the England striker could be a surprise inclusion against Chelsea.
But Mourinho has made it clear that securing Champions League football next season is a must – which means the Cup could prove too much of a distraction. with the second leg of their round of 16 Europa League tie with Rostov to come on Thursday, Mourinho has hinted he could name a weakened side at Stamford Bridge.
