Three points as Manchester United draw 0-0 with West Ham at the London Stadium.

Luke Shaw almost scored his first goal for United in the opening period and tempers flared towards the end of the match, but visiting boss Jose Mourinho will not have cared too much.

Manchester United clinched second place in the Premier League with this result, an achievement that has been lost in a lot of scrutiny and negativity over the course of the season.

Paul Merson believes he's noticed something about Manchester United's players that shows they're too afraid to play under current manager Jose Mourinho.

Several other players became involved in the bust up and West Ham striker Andy Carroll and Man Utd defender Luke Shaw could still get in bothered with the FA as ref Jon Moss did not punish them on the night.

Noble was lucky not to see red after grabbing Pogba by the face, in what was a rather mismatched clash.

Mourinho said: "We are the second best team in the Premier League, a fantastic competition with six teams trying to finish first".

The second place finish also marks the first time in Mourinho's coaching history finishing second in his second season at the club. I'm not as sad as I normally am when my players end their careers because he is going to be with us and even closer to me than he was as a player.

"It [retaining their Premier League status] is a big achievement for us", said Moyes, who confirmed he will be speaking to the club's owners next week about his future. "We have done the job we came to do - we are not relegated".
