Luke Shaw had a strike turned onto the post in the first half in a game bereft of quality and decent chances.

It means Mourinho's side will finish four positions better off than past year, which was the Portuguese's first season at the club.

"We are the second best team in the Premier League, a fantastic competition with lots of good teams", said Mourinho.

United are guaranteed their best Premier League finish in five years following the 0-0 draw with West Ham on Thursday that sealed second place.

There was a more subdued atmosphere from the home fans at the end of another deeply frustrating campaign for the Hammers.

West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic has expressed his desire to carry his good form for the Hammers into next season.

Moyes, who steered West Ham to safety with a 2-0 win at Leicester on Saturday, echoed the comments of Mourinho and was happy with the performance of his side given they had already assured themselves of top-flight football next season.

Putin aide says no talks underway with Syria on S-300
Russian Federation last month hinted it would supply the weapons to Bashar al-Assad, over Israeli objections, after Western military strikes on Syria.

Despite West Ham's attempts to generate an atmosphere at the London Stadium for this fixture - by adding huge concourse motifs of their former captains and record breakers - there were a large number of empty seats. "This is a big club and there are big expectations from the supporters so they will need to improve".

Mourinho reacted to Friday's 1-0 defeat at Brighton by making eight changes, introducing a back three and utilising fit-again Alexis Sanchez as his main striker.

West Ham will be without the services of Sam Byram and Michail Antonio for Sunday's game, while Javier Hernandez and James Collins are reportedly doubts with knee and hamstring injuries respectively.

Jesse Lingard forced the Spanish goalkeeper into his first save moments later with a drive from a similar position.

The game seemed to be petering out before a flare up between the sides as Pogba's foul on West Ham skipper Mark Noble led to a fracas.

Arsene Wenger predicts a European super league will be introduced over the next few years, leading to major changes for the Premier League.

A win would be nice, but more than anything, I would like to see an Everton squad on the front foot, the entire game, playing entertaining football. Their opponents have nothing to play for either in this clash at Old Trafford, now sitting in 13th place and unable to reach the Europa League spots but already comfortably clear of the relegation zone.
