Soccer – United resting up for Gunners

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he will rest some of Manchester United squad for the Premier League clash with Arsenal. The Red Devils coach was speaking after seeing his side secure a 1-0 away win in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final against Celta Vigo. Mourinho had told reporters before the game that he was likely to give priority to their European campaign, with the winners of the Europa League claiming a place in the group stage of the Champions League next season. "The players that have accumulated lots of minutes are not going to play next weekend," Mourinho said after the victory in Spain. United picked up another couple of fresh injury concerns against Celta, with the versatile Ashley Young having to be replaced due to a hamstring problem after just 11 minutes on the pitch, while goalscorer Marcus Rashford was also withdrawn late on. The men from Manchester can now be backed at 10/3 with bet365 to win at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
