EPL: Mourinho speaks on 'punishing' Martial, Rashford

A typical end of the season affair was witnessed at the London stadium as West Ham United and Manchester United played out a bore 0-0 draw.

The away supporters in attendance paid near-constant tributes to former manager Alex Ferguson, the 76-year-old now out of intensive care having had an operation on a brain haemorrhage over the weekend.

West Ham defender Pablo Zabaleta insists he's happy where he is. Javi Garcia has led them to safety, but his spell at the club has been underwhelming, to say the least.

Mourinho made eight changes to his team as he prepares for the FA Cup final against his old club Chelsea next Saturday.

The second place finish also marks the first time in Mourinho's coaching history finishing second in his second season at the club.

Overall, I am pleased with the players all round.

Jose Mourinho has revealed that he told his Manchester United players that they were going to lose at half-time in their game against Brighton. Of course, people will argue that they did not get close enough to City in the title race but, as far as I can see, this has been a very good season for them.

West Ham spent most of the second half on the front foot and Manchester United were pinned back in their own half and could not break out. "I play Romero, I play Daley Blind, I play Bailly, I play Rashford, I play Martial, I play Mata, but I have every player apart from Fellaini and Lukaku available and I don't go to the young players". I think it shows that we can play both formations. "We have done the job we came to do - we are not relegated". Both players were booked. "If we finish second and win a trophy it will leave us with a good feeling".

United's first decent chance came at the midway point of the first half and fell the way of McTominay - but he arrowed wide. Had West Ham put him under more pressure, he could have endured a much tougher evening.

A sliced clearance from Chris Smalling nearly gifted Arnautovic another chance five minutes later, but the Austrian could not readjust his body in time to turn Aaron Cresswell's cross on target. After Rashford failed to impress on the south coast, this time it was Alexis Sanchez's turn to deputise but it was no great success either.

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