Mourinho picked Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard to lead the line for the 0-0 draw at the London Stadium in the absence of the injured Romelu Lukaku, leaving Rashford and Martial - who both started the dire defeat at the Amex Stadium - on the bench.

United's first decent chance came at the midway point of the first-half and fell the way of Scott McTominay - but Mourinho's choice for player of the year could only arrow a shot wide of Adrian's goal.

And fans think Smalling, reportedly on £80k-a-week wages, typifies this new United under Jose Mourinho.

Marko Arnautovic almost opened the scoring for the Hammers in the sixth minute with a low strike that forced goalkeeper David De Gea into a good save.

Shaw was lively for the visitors and in the 35th minute he tested Adrian with a strike from around 25-yards out. Arnautovic continued to look a threat and drifted past Smalling to find Joao Mario at the near post but the ball bounced off target to United's relief. Just after the hour mark, Antonio Valencia sent in a good cross which Pogba headed just wide.

"After 37 games, the players are all getting ready for a break". Martial has endured a hard period since Mourinho's reliance on Alexis Sanchez on the left wing and the Frenchman now needs to find a way of winning back the Portuguese's confidence.

United thus secured the second spot in the league this season and de Gea won his first ever Golden Glove after his 18th clean sheet.

They will likely finish second in the Premier League table this season but are a huge distance behind champions Man City who could finish 20 points ahead of them. It isn't the position anybody wanted to finish in but it marks a great deal of progress from last term.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho stated clearly that Frenchman Paul Pogba will be part of his plans for next season and will not leave Old Trafford this summer.

There could be a clue as to the thinking about the shape of the side for the Emirates FA Cup final with Chelsea, like West Ham, operating a three-man defence.
