A forgettable game ended in a drab 0-0 stalemate as Luke Shaw came closest to settling the contest when his first-half effort was turned onto the post. West Ham 0 Manchester United 0 was the latest boring game featuring Jose Mourinho's side, where the best moment was 3,000 away fans singing "It's the worst f--ing ground we've ever seen" and the adjacent West Ham fans applauding in agreement.

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

Jose Mourinho admits he can not be "totally happy" at finishing second in the table after Manchester United were confirmed as Premier League runners-up.

As for the East Londoners and David Moyes, the general feel from today's press conference was that its job done as far as this season is concerned, following the club guaranteeing survival at the weekend.

"West Ham are a big club, there's a lot of expectation, they want to improve every year".

Some home fans even applauded the subsequent "You're not West Ham anymore" chant.

Now the club must go and add to the likes of Arnautovic and Rice with astute additions to move the team on next season.

The result leaves Jose Mourinho's side four points clear of third-placed Tottenham with one game left.

Jesse Lingard forced the Spanish goalkeeper into his first save moments later with a drive from a similar position.

A furious late spat between Hammers skipper Mark Noble and United's Paul Pogba, which led to a mass altercation between opposing players, will capture most of the headlines after a largely lifeless contest.

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

But the Frenchman is predicting a huge overhaul of football in the near future, with Premier League fixtures relegated to midweek slots.

"I was wrong but we were positive in the game".

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

With European qualification long since removed as an option and fears of relegation also in the rear view mirror, the Blues will be playing for eighth place and the extra couple of million pounds that will earn the club over a finish one place lower.
