It stays on the field - Noble calms Pogba pitch spat

Manchester United "don't celebrate second position", says manager Jose Mourinho after his side sealed the Premier League runners-up spot with a 0-0 draw at West Ham.

If United win the FA Cup, it doesn't make or break the campaign in same way the Europa League did past year, but silverware is still vitally important and means those who have been criticising the club and manager throughout 2017-18 have limited weight to support their argument.

"I think also when you look at the clubs that have gone down this year, I don't think there'd be many people who predicted whose going down".

Manchester United players are "petrified" of Jose Mourinho and would not care if they were sold this summer, Paul Merson has said. Wenger said the move was "inevitable" because the big clubs would want a bigger slice of the money that comes into football and would be less willing to share it with their smaller rivals.

Mourinho has poisoned his own dressing room, as he did at Chelsea and Madrid, the rot hasn't set in completely yet but players who traditionally have been the corner stone of Old Trafford are being publicly being called out on the back of one start every couple of months.

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. But with City 19 points ahead of United there was no sense of elation at the final whistle from the Red Devils.

However, having won 13 and lost just one of the previous 18 encounters between these sides, they have been boosted to an industry-best 17/20 (1.85) from 4/5 (1.80) with dabblebet to return to winning ways at the first attempt.

The final day of the Premier League season is on Sunday.

West Ham forward Jordan Hugill could make his first start since joining the club in January, with Javier Hernandez still nursing a knee injury. "The end-of-season report for both clubs probably is "could and should do better".

Some supporters have made up their mind on Mourinho and want him out. But for many the jury is still out.

"There's a lot of players that Mourinho has brought in that I'd question". He must do better.
