3 things that went wrong for Manchester United against West Ham United

11 May, 2018, 05:05 | Author: Greg Lawrence
  • Jose Mourinho was spotted returning to the Lowry Hotel on Tuesday afternoon following training at Carrington

He chose to ring the changes and Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard, Scott McTominay, Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw all started the game.

Adrian has been restored in the West Ham goal for the past three games in place of England worldwide Joe Hart, and showed why with a hat-trick of fine saves.

And fans think Smalling, reportedly on £80k-a-week wages, typifies this new United under Jose Mourinho.

"We had to get the players in order a little bit after we came in, and we have done that".

In the absence of the injured Lukaku, Lingard appeared to be United's most likely scorer, though he could not beat Adrian with a 20-yard strike in the 55th minute.

In first-half stoppage time, Lingard unleashed a swerving drive that was pushed away by the busy Adrian, who was proving far more effective than in the recent match here against Manchester City.

The £89 million midfielder did have the visitors' best chance when he headed wide just after the hour mark from Antonio Valencia's pin-point cross.

Paxton throws M's sixth no-hitter
He no-hit the Toronto Blue Jays , a 99-pitch masterpiece that solidified his place as one of the sport's most unheralded stars. They were giving me some trouble in the seventh inning, but once I got past that, they started kind of cheering me on.

"After 37 games, the players are all getting ready for a break".

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.

Subs: Hart, Evra, Fernandez, Obiang, Cullen, Hugill.

Subs: Romero, Blind, Mata, Martial.

The point means United will finish as best of the rest behind runaway champions Manchester City while David Moyes' Hammers move within two points of the top half with a game remaining. It isn't the position anybody wanted to finish in but it marks a great deal of progress from last term. Jose made a decision to match up to that system at the London Stadium and he does have a number of centre-backs at his disposal so it could be an option on the big day.

United earned the point to leave them second but produced another drab performance - while West Ham could still finish as high as 10th, if an unusual set of results go in their favour on the final day of the season on Sunday. Second in the league and a cup final on the way - that can be considered progress.
