West Ham 0 Manchester United 0

In a boring game with few quality chances, United defender Luke Shaw came closest to scoring when he had a shot turned onto the post in the first half.

"I am more pleased we didn't concede a goal because it's probably been the thing we haven't done well, we have conceded too many goals and in the last two games, we have kept clean sheets".

The result puts United four points ahead of third-placed Tottenham with just one game remaining, assuring them of a place in the group stages of next season's Champions League.

There was a more subdued atmosphere from the home fans at the end of another deeply frustrating campaign for the Hammers. It's far removed from the United of old under Alex Ferguson.

The point guarantees United their first top-two finish in five years, while West Ham retain the slim possibility of ending the season in the top-half.

Jose Mourinho achieves his season ambition: Right from the turn of the year, Mourinho had highlighted the need for United to finish as the second-best side behind Manchester City.

San Jose Sharks Outplayed by Vegas in Second Round Exit
Game 7 of the Nashville-Winnipeg series is Thursday, with the victor advancing to face the Golden Knights with home ice advantage. Even the fourth line played a big role Sunday by controlling the puck and hemming San Jose in the defensive zone.

However, that failed to provoke an immediate response as West Ham posed the early threat.

Lukaku is expected to be back in time for the FA Cup final against Chelsea, and he can't return soon enough because, without him, there was no presence beyond the West Ham centre backs.

Jose Mourinho opted to start Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard up front, as Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford dropped to the bench.

Shaw was lively for the visitors and in the 35th minute he tested Adrian with a strike from around 25-yards out.

A lacklustre United display was reflected in Pogba again failing to take control of the game. The Frenchman headed wide after neat wing-play by Valencia, thrashed an audacious 40-yarder off target and was unlucky with a bending drive, following tenacious play by Alexis. Joao Mario was alert but sent an effort into the side-netting.

It was the closest either side came to scoring, although the match flared up toward the end Paul Pogba's foul on West Ham skipper Mark Noble led to a fracas.
