Finishing second not ideal but it fills Jose with belief

Mourinho 'not totally happy' with second place

David Moyes has kept West Ham United in the Premier League.

United sit 19 points behind rivals and runaway champions Manchester City - who also won the EFL Cup - and Mourinho feels his team could have performed better over the season.

"West Ham arguably had the best January of any club in the Premier League because we sold three players, made a profit, bought one, brought in only Jordan Hugill".

"We need a point to finish second", stated Mourinho.

Overall, I am pleased with the players all round. Against Brighton, at half-time I told the players they were going to lose and tonight at half-time I said we would win.

In United's first game since legendary former manager Alex Ferguson had to have emergency surgery on a brain hemorrhage, the visiting fans showed their support to the 76-year-old Scot with persist chants of "we all love Alex Ferguson".

"We have one more game on Sunday and we want to finish strong, then we can go forward to next season".

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.

The Red Devils have come up short in the Premier League this season, with Manchester City having run away with the title following their brilliant form under Pep Guardiola in his second season in charge.

While United have conceded the second fewest amount of goals in the league, they have scored the fewest amount of goals in the top four.

"It is normal that Michael Carrick will be captain at Old Trafford for the last game of his career".

Marko Arnautovic's goals have kept Moyes's men up and the Austrian muscled his way into a good shooting position on six minutes but placed his shot too close to David de Gea.

There have been many fantastic football matches in this season's Premier League but last night's goalless draw between West Ham and Manchester United at the London Stadium wasn't one of them. "They are not of Manchester United standard".

Matic has been a very good buy and really commands things at the base of midfield and while Lukaku has been scoring for United there was that 12 game period he went missing and his ability to score against the big team remains a massive concern.
