Man Utd boss Mourinho won't celebrate second

Speaking after the game, Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho laughed the incident off and reckoned the pair looked more like a romantic couple than a pair of brawlers. Yet, the 0-0 draw was good for one thing.

West Ham had secured safety last week itself, while the Red Devils needed merely one point to secure a second spot finish, focusing more on the FA Cup final awaiting them. The Devils are now officially runners-up, after Manchester City proved to be unstoppable this season.

"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. Hugs and kisses and changing shirts at full-time. After United reached the Europa League semifinal, Mourinho made the courageous, and ultimately correct, decision to prioritise winning a trophy to secure Champions League football, rather than going for top four.

The fans should be wary of always talking about next season, as their rivals Liverpool have for nearly three decades, but 2018-19 will surely be the one when the questions being asked of Mourinho are answered, one way or the other.

Manchester United controlled the match, but that was not enough for them to score against the Hammers. "I think he's going to be here next season". How poor United's shots were show the underlying numbers, as their expected goals were just 0.60.

But it did not come without a little help from the goal posts which prevented the Sharks from scoring on multiple occasions. The puck hit the camera in the net and upon review was ruled a goal, giving Vegas a 2-0 lead headed into the third period.

West Ham no longer a thorn in United's side? After all, it was the Belgian who made difference the last time United and Chelsea met.

Adrian has been restored in the West Ham goal for the past three games in place of England global Joe Hart, and showed why with a hat-trick of fine saves. "My experience has allowed me to see what good really looks like off the pitch, whether it be facilities, a board of directors, the people who work round football clubs, the roles people should have".

"I'm one of Pogba's biggest fans". "Sometimes when you get safe you can slip away from it but the players were at it all night and stuck to it to get a thoroughly deserved point".

Those few minutes at the end take me to 500 club appearances, 200 of which have been for @ManUtd.

Clearly showing that even though the FA Cup will most definitely remain his priority, finishing second in the league is still very important for the club.
