Mourinho casts doubt on future of several United stars

Anthony Martial

Ahead of Thursday night's tiresome and goalless draw with West Ham, which ironically clinched second place for the Red Devils, Mourinho once again made it known that some cuts are coming to Old Trafford this summer.

Anthony Martial's future remains uncertain: Prior to the game, we had predicted that Martial could face a season-defining game at the London Stadium but the Frenchman never made the playing field.

The point means United are ensured of finishing second behind runaway champion Manchester City, while David Moyes' West Ham remained in 15th place - but just two points from 10th with one game remaining.

West Ham have edged on to 39 points, but there is a question mark over whether boss Moyes will still be in charge next term.

Manchester United have guaranteed second place in the Premier League, their highest position since winning the league in 2012-13.

- Since Alex Ferguson retired at the end of the 2012-13 season, no Premier League team has drawn more matches 0-0 than United (19, level with Southampton).

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has, on several previous indications, made comments that give a strong indication of a coming summer clear out.

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

Marko Arnautovic beat Chris Smalling for pace in the seventh minute but fired straight at De Gea, the forward then heading over after the United defender badly sliced a clearance.

Adrian was again on hand to keep out Lingard's strike on the stroke of half-time as the teams headed in level at the break.

Jesse Lingard was lively, picking up good spaces in front of the Hammers' low block and forcing Adrian into two good saves from distance, but there was no cohesion with his strike partner Alexis Sanchez.

United created the lion's share of the opportunities, but in truth, West Ham deserved something for their toil against a side that had thrashed them by four unanswered goals on the way back on the opening day f the season. We kept control of the game.

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.
