Mourinho casts doubt on future of several United stars

Despite finishing as runners-up in the league it's been a disappointing season for United, not least for the manner in which they've gone about games like this.

United created the lion's share of the opportunities, but in truth, West Ham deserved something for their toil against a side that had thrashed them by four unanswered goals on the way back on the opening day f the season.

United mustered their 18th clean sheet of the season and first top-flight draw of 2018, while a clash which petered out into a typical end of season affair was kept goalless by a cluster of saves from West Ham goalkeeper Adrian in the first half.

Marko Arnautovic was again West Ham's best outlet, using his power and pace to test David de Gea from 20 yards early on, before Aaron Cresswell's deflected cross caught him off guard and he tipped over the bar.

Scott McTominay sparked the Reds' best spell of the first half, after Ander Herrera robbed Manuel Lanzini in a risky position, when he flashed a drive just wide.

That's normal. I know the players.

Lingard was at it again 10 minutes after the restart with a strike from range but Adrian was equal to the task.

Paul Pogba was struggling to exert influence on the game and the midfielder should have scored from Antonio Valencia's right-wing cross, instead heading wide.

As the second half went on, chances were hard to come by the both sides, which prompted Mourinho to introduce Rashford for Lingard, while the Hammers introduced Andy Carroll.

Manchester United have guaranteed second place in the Premier League, their highest position since winning the league in 2012-13.

Premier League safety was secured with a win at Leicester City on Saturday, but it felt like nobody had told Moyes or the players, who played within themselves, as they had against Manchester City in their last home game which they lost 4-1.

Jose Mourinho has managed more matches against David Moyes without losing (13 - W8 D5) than against any other manager in his managerial career.
