Mourinho: United Won't Celebrate Premier League Second Position

Mark Noble of West Ham United celebrates scoring his side's second goal with team mates during the Premier League match between Leicester City and West Ham United at The King Power Stadium

I have been enjoying it even though it has not been a great season.

The Red Devils did win the Europa League and League Cup in Mourinho's first campaign in charge last season. I know the style sometimes frustrates the fans but you can not argue with results.

Moyes signed a deal until the end of the season, tasked with keeping the Hammers in the Premier League. Social media is full of United fans claiming it's unacceptable for United to settle for this current situation, but that is a spoilt mentality. "They don't want to be a club flirting with relegation, and that's understandable", he said.

"The next evolution? Maybe I will see you in a few years and you will certainly have a European league over the weekends", he said.

While the football isn't what fans want, with some presumably unaware of the style Mourinho has employed throughout his career when they were desperate for him to be appointed, progress is being made.

"They look petrified. I watch Man City play, Liverpool play, Tottenham play - they have passages of play where it looks like they're trying to do something in that game".

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.

Sheringham, a Treble victor with United in 1999, believes Rashford needs more game time.

Both players grabbed hold of one another but it was Noble who was arguably the luckier of the pair to only be booked following his angry reaction.

It was the third time United have failed to score in their last five Premier League fixtures. But with City 19 points ahead of United there was no sense of elation at the final whistle from the Red Devils.

The Toffees have won 24 Premier League games against West Ham, more than they have against any other side.

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.

"You could say that was a risk and if it hadn't worked, you could probably be critical". Had United not endured a disastrous spell during December, this season could have been very different, and certainly more respectable.
