"It hurts, because we played an nearly flawless game but that first goal cost us dearly", said Lyon defender Maxwell Cornet.
The Red Devils were beaten by Tottenham on Sunday afternoon, guaranteeing Spurs will finish second in the league - and ending United's hunt for a top four finish.
The Argentina goalkeeper has played 11 of the 14 Europa League matches this season but remains back-up to the outstanding de Gea, naturally leading to questions as to whether Mourinho will switch to the coveted Spaniard for the final. I don't think we can finish seventh or finish fourth.
"I say always that I work hard from the first day of the season to be ready when the manager gives me a possibility". "When I analyse, I don't think [losing the final would be failure], but if I was in your chair, maybe".
The England global will miss the first three games of next season's Champions League campaign as a result.
Jose Mourinho will stick with Sergio Romero as his Europa League keeper, insisting De Gea won't play the final.
United made eight alterations to their starting line-up from the team that edged into the Europa League final against Celta Vigo on Thursday, with Eric Bailly, Daley Blind and Jesse Lingard the only players to keep their place.

Bailly was sent off along with Celta's Facundo Roncaglia after a bout of pushing and shoving involving players from both teams in the final minutes of the 1-1 semi-final second leg draw at Old Trafford.
"The referee and the goal referee decide not to give it", Mourinho said after the 0-0 draw.
"We are not going to say that matches are not important matches".
Mourinho said Bailly might have been "naive" during a post-match television interview, but in his subsequent press conference he said he had not seen the incident again and did not want to comment on it.
"If everything goes normal and there are no problems, Sergio plays the final". We played, we tried to win.
He added: "Of course, when a player is at a fantastic club like Manchester United they know there is a lot of competition because there are a lot of good players". Jose Mourinho's side will play a youthful Ajax team in the final at Stockholm's Friends Arena on May 24, when they can complete their trophy collection and-perhaps more importantly-book a place in next season's Champions League.
