Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata is set to miss the remainder of the English Premier League season following groin surgery.

The Spain international had an operation last month but had hoped to play again this term.

However, United boss Jose Mourinho confirmed the 28‑year‑old, who joined from Chelsea in January 2014, would not be fit until the end of May.

Defenders Phil Jones and Chris Smalling will not return until mid‑May.

United will play Chelsea at 3am on Monday.

Meanwhile, Tottenham will face Bournemouth at 11.30 tonight.
