"If we are going to win the Europa League final it will be an incredible season for us, because have already won two trophies, and this one would be the third one", Mkhitaryan told Sky Sports.
With nothing riding on Sunday's game for either United or Palace, who are assured of avoiding relegation, Mourinho believes it should have been moved forward a day.
According to M.E.N's Samuel Luckhurst, the youngster had been offered a new deal prior to impressing against Sam Allardyce's men.
It would mean Jose Mourinho's first season in charge at Old Trafford could be classed as a success. It's a defining moment in our season and we need to make sure we win the game.
"That's in a lot of people's minds", United defender Daley Blind said of the pressure of achieving Champions League qualification, "but, for us, the most important thing is to lift that trophy".
"Many in Holland said it was not possible for a Dutch team to play in the final because the financial difference in Europe between the big clubs and the Dutch clubs is so big now, but we managed it", Ajax manager Peter Bosz told a media conference over the weekend. I am delighted that Ajax have reached the final and it will be a special game.
Manchester United's current third choice goalkeeper Joel Pereira has revealed that he wants to become the club's first choice goalkeeper.
After stating that he will respect each and every opposition, Mourinho continued: "If you see what happened last season, against Midtjylland (2-1 loss), you don't forget that as a fan".
Ajax won the previous season's Champions League and famous figures from their 1990s golden team have helped to restore the club to former glories.
Of course, Manchester United and Ajax have genuine quality and pedigree, for they have been standard-bearers of European football for many decades.
Marouane Fellaini is having a hamstring injury assessed, while Chris Smalling is set to be fit for Wednesday's Europa League final despite a "small problem" keeping him out against Palace. I don't want the players to feel like that. I think for the kids it will be a big occasion, it will always be good experience for them. "That you can get a long way with talent". I expect that we can change that for next season. We would be disappointed if we weren't in every competition.
A clear objective will be to bring in players who will have more productivity.
"If, in the next transfer window, we manage to be successful, I think we can [challenge for the title]".
