Paul Merson: Manchester United players look "petrified" of Jose Mourinho

A point might be seen as a good result against the team that finished runner-up in the Premier League, but the manner of the performance would have caused consternation.

Noble has admitted the West Ham players have found the London Stadium atmosphere hard to bear at times this season.

As well, United's 10 away wins this season are the second-most in the league behind only champions City and Mourinho's men will be out to make sure they can have a pressure-free final day.

Manchester United: David De Gea 6, Victor Lindelof 6, Chris Smalling 5, Phil Jones 6, Antonio Valencia 6, Ander Herrera 6, Scott McTominay 6, Luke Shaw 6, Paul Pogba 6, Alexis Sanchez 7, Jesse Lingard 7.

"We need a point to finish second", stated Mourinho.

"I could have joined a Premier League club during the season here when I was West Ham manager", he added.

"Manchester United are the same", Mourinho said after the game on Thursday.

West Ham had secured safety last week itself, while the Red Devils needed merely one point to secure a second spot finish, focusing more on the FA Cup final awaiting them.

"But when the game goes to 70, 75 minutes, you don't win, you don't lose, you do the job".

Overall, I am pleased with the players all round.

Moyes signed a deal until the end of the season, tasked with keeping the Hammers in the Premier League.

Since the illustrious Scotsman stepped down at Old Trafford in 2013 - after guiding the Red Devils to a 20th league title - they've ended the subsequent four seasons in 7th, 4th, 5th and 6th.

"I think we need both things [more quality and a better mindset] that you mentioned".

Arnautovic admitted that there have been fluctuation in West Ham's form this season but at the same time is happy that he could help the team achieve their goal.

"The players went about it really well, with a great attitude and commitment".

West Ham skipper Noble would like to see Moyes stay but - if he is to leave - then the 31-year-old believes the Scot can walk away proud of the job done in hard circumstances. I can give you the guarantee that the club doesn't want to sell him.
