68% of Man United fans want James over Barkley

Jose Mourinho's men eventually finished sixth in the table, 24 points behind champions Chelsea.

Mourinho's first season in charge was definitely not without its obstacles, though, as the Red Devils often struggled to put overly defensive sides away at Old Trafford, equalling the Premier League record of most draws at home - 10.

Manchester United centre-back Phil Jones admits that this season "has been tough at times", but is confident of closing the gap on those at the top in 2017-18.

He helped United win the Europa League with many suggesting that he should be the next captain if Wayne Rooney leaves the club. However, I think we deserved to win because ever since the first minute of the final we had a very clear idea of what we wanted and we performed as an experienced, well-prepared team.

Kelly on non-criminal ICE arrestees: 'not the valedictorians'
ICE officials in Southern California arrested almost 200 persons Thursday, most of whom had prior criminal convictions. The majority - 146 - are from Mexico while two are from Russian Federation and one from Cambodia.

In fairness, the Portuguese had the right to complain about how the Red Devils' fixture list had been set out.

Griezmann, who signed for Atletico from Real Sociedad in 2014, scored 26 goals and set up 12 more for the club in all competitions this season. However, the Old Trafford club will at least have the comfort of knowing that some of their closest rivals will be facing a similarly challenging schedule next year.

That won't be the case next season, though. We worked hard to get there and ultimately the Champions League is where we want to be and the football we want to be playing next season.

Linked with United in the January transfer window, Benfica defender Victor Lindelof is now available at 4/1 (5.00) to make the move this summer, while England worldwide Michael Keane can be backed at 5/1 (6.00) to return to his boyhood club after an impressive season at Burnley.
