Premier League: David Moyes unsure if West Ham can match his ambitions as his contract extension hangs in balance

"We came second, I am not totally happy that is not my nature". But since the moment we felt it was impossible to finish first we had the target to finish second and it is done on Thursday.

Overall, I am pleased with the players all round.

"I am [disappointed] but they had a good attitude, they played the way they should, they play to win the game like we planned", added Mourinho. I only missed one game and that was because I have been suspended so it was injury free.

When asked whether he wants to see improvements made over the summer in terms of atmosphere at home games, Noble replied: "Do I think we can make the stadium atmosphere better? Yes".

Manchester United now prepare for a dead-rubber against Watford at Old Trafford on Sunday to close out their Premier League campaign.

The defender helped his side to keep a valuable clean sheet against the Red Devils and fans on social media were delighted with the performance of the 19-year-old.

"David de Gea will be rested, it gives a chance for Sergio Romero to play".

As it was, the point was all United required to make sure they will finish above Tottenham, the only club that was capable of catching them before last night.

Moyes signed a deal until the end of the season, tasked with keeping the Hammers in the Premier League.

After the 1-0 defeat to Brighton last week, a furious Mourinho explained why some players feature in more matches than others, emphasizing on the fact that some of the players in that squad are not good enough individually.

Manchester United fans offered their support to Ferguson in their first match since it was announced their former manager had suffered a brain haemorrhage.

The Reds boss believed that both sides were looking to win the game until the closing stages, when he admitted to closing up shop in order to ensure the point that guaranteed his club a runners-up spot in the Premier League.

"It's been a big achievement for us but I've enjoyed it. They don't want to be a club flirting with relegation, and that's understandable", he said.

West Ham skipper Noble would like to see Moyes stay but - if he is to leave - then the 31-year-old believes the Scot can walk away proud of the job done in hard circumstances.
