'It's hard to watch' - Jamie Redknapp hammers Manchester United under Jose Mourinho

The Hammers played out an uninspiring 0-0 draw at the London Stadium against Manchester United on Thursday night as Jose Mourinho's men locked down second spot in the Premier League.

United had the majority of possession and twice as many shots as their London opponents but could not find a way past goalkeeper Adrian.

Having been blown away by rivals Manchester City, who are 19 points ahead of the chasing pack, United moved four clear of third-placed Tottenham with one game remaining to seal the merest of consolations.

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.

Manchester United have had it rough in the years since Ferguson's retirement.

United end the Premier League season with a home clash against Watford at Old Trafford on Sunday (15:00 BST).

Rodney Hood Refused To Enter Game 4 In 4th Quarter
During a timeout, several players surrounded Hood to encourage him to enter the game, but he refused. UPDATE: Hood has apologized to Altman for the Game 4 incident, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin .

Jose Mourinho's charges had a good spell with 10 minutes left to play and had the game by the scruff of the neck but could not carve out clear-cut chances.

Marko Arnautovic was again West Ham's best outlet, using his power and pace to test David de Gea from 20 yards early on, before Aaron Cresswell's deflected cross caught him off guard and he tipped over the bar.

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.

The likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata paid the price for a poor showing on the south coast with the trio dropped to the bench here.

Manchester United had superb chance to score in the 22nd minute when Jesse Lingard supplied a wonderful pass for Ander Herrera, but he could not beat West Ham goalie Adrian. Joao Mario was alert but sent an effort into the side-netting.

However, the Frenchman did come a lot closer with his final strike that curled just past the post from a narrow angle.Pogba's frustration then spilled over when he was lucky to escape with just a yellow card after grappling with West Ham captain Mark Noble as tempers flared in the latter stages.
