Paul Merson: Manchester United players "petrified" of Jose Mourinho

West Ham United vs Manchester United: live score updates

The Red Devils secured a runners-up spot in this season's Premier League following a goalless draw away to West Ham.

Merson believes that a lack of confidence from United's attacking players is to blame, which he puts down to Mourinho.

United are now 19 adrift new EPL champions Manchester City with one game left to play in the season.

Moyes has endured some hard seasons but is certainly helping West Ham dig out from the bottom three.

"I don't think they [United's players] grasp the importance of these games".

As Noble and Pogba grappled, several other players joined the fray, including West Ham striker Andy Carroll and Man Utd defender Luke Shaw, and The Sun predicts they could "get in bother with the FA as ref Jon Moss did not punish them on the night".

'It looks like there is a plan.

In fact, such was the nature of the game that the most exciting moment arrived late into the second half, when Mark Noble and Paul Pogba went at it akin to wrestlers. It's different at Manchester United - everyone is standing still, everyone just passes the ball - there is no movement. "My experience has allowed me to see what good really looks like off the pitch, whether it be facilities, a board of directors, the people who work round football clubs, the roles people should have".

"I was very far from it and when I saw the reaction of the players [at full-time] I believe it was nothing extraordinary". Mourinho has poisoned his own dressing room, as he did at Chelsea and Madrid, the rot hasn't set in completely yet but players who traditionally have been the corner stone of Old Trafford are being publicly being called out on the back of one start every couple of months.

"There's a lot of players that Mourinho has brought in that I'd question".

"A point against Manchester United any time is a good result and the attitude was good", Moyes told Sky Sports.
