What Mark Noble Tweeted After Clashing With Paul Pogba

Every player rated as David de Gea secures the Golden Glove in West Ham 0-0 Man Utd

Paul Merson believes that Manchester United's failure to score in back-to-back games is down to manager Jose Mourinho making his players "petrified" of making a mistake.

The likes of Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay and Phil Jones also started in a much-changed XI in a 3-5-2 formation, but the team failed to gel and did not create many genuine chances.

West Ham fought their way to a 0-0 draw with Man United in a awful game at the London Stadium on Thursday night, and fans were fuming at another poor display from Cheikhou Kouyaté.

"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.

"We need a point to finish second", stated Mourinho. Do I think we can make it more entertaining on a match day?

Manchester United were in danger of dropping into a battle for third in the Premier League following their loss at Brighton on Friday night.

Mourinho explained that his squad rotation was merely to get minutes into his players with an eye to the FA Cup final meeting with Chelsea on May 18 and confirmed Martial and Rashford will return against Watford on Sunday.

The West Ham boss is on a contract until the end of the season at the London Stadium after joining the club in November, keeping them up with two games to spare.

Overall, I am pleased with the players all round.

Luke Shaw almost scored his first goal for United in the opening period and tempers flared towards the end of the match, but visiting boss Jose Mourinho will not have cared too much.

"That means the team has defended well all year, and I'm very happy for that".

The draw extends Jose Mourinho's unbeaten streak against David Moyes to 11 games. If they go and challenge - or win - the title next season then United fans really can't complain. We had the best chances, I believe, Adrian made a few saves and in the first half we had a double one. I don't want to be a manager who celebrates avoiding relegation.
