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

Posted May 13, 2018

Manchester United stumbled across the line into second place with a hapless draw against West Ham on Thursday night but still remain 19 points behind Manchester City.

Nevertheless, Manchester United are on course for their highest placed finish since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement, and they can still win the FA Cup by beating Chelsea FC in the final later this month.

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.

"We need a point to say that only one team was better than us, we need a point to say that 18 teams were not as good as us".

"The last two games we have got two good clean sheets".

The Hammers finish the season with a home game against Everton on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho insisted his side had played well despite another below-par showing in their stalemate at West Ham.

Moyes has done what he was supposed to do - keep West Ham in the Premier League - and there is no doubt that he has been a success at the London Stadium.

Despite West Ham's attempts to generate an atmosphere at the London Stadium for this fixture - by adding huge concourse motifs of their former captains and record-breakers - there were a large number of empty seats.

THE world's major powers were nearly unanimous in their condemnation of Donald Trump's scrapping of U.S. support for the Iran nuclear deal.

"I wouldn't want to run round waving to supporters because we've avoided relegation". To start they need to create a buzz and all the big money signings will only do that until they get onto the field.

However, that failed to provoke an immediate response as West Ham posed the early threat. David De Gea will be rested, so it gives a chance for Sergio Romero to play.

Mourinho's side created the better chances, but never enough to truly worry Adrian in the West Ham net.

A lackluster United display was reflected in Pogba again failing to take control of the game. He has been the best goalkeeper in the league and this award just goes alongside to prove it.

The Frenchman came a lot closer moments later with a strike that curled just past the post from a narrow angle.

Manchester United's Paul Pogba and West Ham's Mark Noble clashed in their Premier League contest, but neither man seem's to be nursing any ill feeling against each other.

Arsene Wenger predicts a European super league will be introduced over the next few years, leading to major changes for the Premier League.

"I said a couple of weeks ago that I expect Liverpool to be in the mix but United will be right there, too".

"A domestic league will certainly play Tuesday/Wednesday".
