The result keeps West Ham 15th in the table and Moyes is eager to see his side finish the season on a high note, with 10th-placed Newcastle United just two points ahead of the East Londoners.

West Ham: Adrian 8 (out of 10), Declan Rice 6, Angelo Ogbonna 6, Aaron Cresswell 6, Pablo Zabaleta 6, Cheikhou Kouyate 6, Mark Noble 6, Moses Masuaku 6, Joao Mario 6, Manuel Lanzini 6, Marko Arnautovic 7.

West Ham and Manchester United played out a tiresome goalless draw at the London Stadium - although the result was enough to see Jose Mourinho's side secure second place in the Premier League.

19 - Since Sir Alex Ferguson retired at the end of the 2012-13 season, no Premier League team has drawn more matches nil-nil than Manchester United (19, level with Southampton).

Jose Mourinho has said he is happy that Manchester United have secured second place in the Premier League, although he has admitted that he isn't totally happy.

"Of course, we had ups and downs, but I'm happy I could help the team towards our goals".

"I said at the start of the season about Marcus Rashford that he needs to play games", he told Sky Sports.

'It looks like there is a plan.

The game was a masterclass in boring football, as none of the sides were able to provide much entertainment. It's different at Manchester United - everyone is standing still, everyone just passes the ball - there is no movement. "I've been right for a few clubs, and I think I'd be right for many clubs". I am not thinking about moving this summer.

Ex-Premier League forward Craig Bellamy feels that United's squad is lacking in quality but is also shorn of an attacking philosophy.

"There's a lot of players that Mourinho has brought in that I'd question". Perhaps the reason behind it was that they really had nothing big to play for.

"Criticising Manchester United has been all too easy this season", Crouch wrote. The things were cooled down fast, but Noble showed at least some fighting spirit from a team that this season often looked disinterested for anything around them.
