He said: "I think it's fair Sergio is going to play in the final and David accepts that, especially because (De Gea) has played three Europa League matches (group stage) already. If we win the trophy, David wins the trophy too."

The final of the European competition is set to be played on May, 24 at Stockholm City, Sweden and the English giants will be hoping for a win as that is their best chance of getting into Champions League next season.
