Mourinho admits being happy with second is against his nature

West Ham United's Mark Noble clashes with Manchester United's Paul Pogba

"Every time a Manchester United player misses a chance they always run back and look at Mourinho in the dugout - they look petrified", he said on The Debate.

And the game was reflective of an end-of-season affair, petering out in the later stages to a draw - United's first in the league of 2018.

With the future of manager David Moyes uncertain, West Ham will head into the summer with several questions over who will remain at the London Stadium by the start of next season.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho refused to criticise his side despite another display lacking inspiration in attacking areas as they sealed second place in the Premier League with a 0-0 draw at West Ham on Thursday.

"We don't celebrate second position but we are happy because for a few months, we realised it was impossible to win the league and, of course, the target is the second position".

"We are the second best team in the Premier League, a fantastic competition with lots of good teams with six teams trying to finish first", said Mourinho in a post-match press conference.

However, they are likely to be very active in the summer transfer window as Mourinho looks to assemble a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

Overall, I am pleased with the players all round.

"We have one more game on Sunday and we want to finish strong, then we can go forward to next season". Now we have the objective to finish with more than 80 points.

"It is normal that Michael Carrick is captain at Old Trafford for the last game of his career. I can make changes".

"A point against Manchester United any time is a good result and the attitude was good", Moyes told Sky Sports.

"We want to climb the league table, we want to be higher, so if we can win against Everton, great. This is a big club and there are big expectations from the supporters so they will need to improve".

"We've done ok against the big sides, especially at home".

This offer is open to all users, new and existing, and to get involved simply follow any of the links and add the selection to your betslip like normal. It would have meant that Louis van Gaal had been more successful and that David Moyes wasn't far behind him.
