Showing Wednesday 24 May, 7.45pm: Ajax v Manchester United, Europa League final

Manchester United can secure a place in next season’s Champions League and add the only major trophy they have never won by beating Dutch side Ajax in the Europa League final in Stockholm.

Jose Mourinho’s side finished sixth in the Premier League but will join Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City in the group stage if they win.

The match comes two days after a suicide bombing in Manchester that killed 22 people. United will wear black armbands. A minute’s silence will also be held before the match.

Liverpool have also qualified for the Champions League after finishing fourth in the Premier League, but must win a two-legged play-off to reach the groups.

Ajax have not played in a European final since 1996, while defeat for United would cost the club £50m in missed revenue.

Jose Mourinho: Manchester United boss charged over pre-Liverpool referee comments

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been charged by the Football Association for claiming it would be “difficult” for referee Anthony Taylor to officiate their game with Liverpool.

Mourinho added appointing Taylor for the 17 October match had put “pressure” on the Manchester-based official.

Managers are not supposed to speak about referees prior to matches.

Mourinho has until 31 October to respond to a charge of improper conduct and bringing the game into disrepute.

Taylor issued four yellow cards – all to Manchester United – in the 0-0 draw.

Former referees’ chief Keith Hackett was among those to question the Professional Game Match Officials Limited’s (PGMOL) decision to assign the match to Altrincham season-ticket holder Taylor, claiming it would be “intolerable” if he got a big decision wrong.
