Manchester United vs Watford: Why Micheal Carrick will start game - Mourinho

With one game of the 2017-18 Premier League campaign remaining, United have at least eight more points than in any other season since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement. Manchester United assured themselves of a second-place finish, despite tempers reaching a boiling point late in the second half. They seem to be a lengthy good distance away from competing with Manchester City.

"I can only think that if there is any relation it is a positive relation", Mourinho said.

West Ham vs Manchester United on Thursday night wasn't exactly a match of the season candidate but that was hardly surprising considering the sides had barely anything to play for with just two games left of the Premier League season. "To have the same mentality as I have, is to face every game in the same way".

With the 20-year-old oozing talent and blistering skill, United boss Jose Mourinho has used him sparingly, and not allowed Rashford a regular run of games.

He was back on the bench for a midweek trip to West Ham, with Mourinho waiting until the 74th minute to introduce him, and Sheringham believes the England worldwide needs to be giving serious consideration to his future ahead of the summer transfer window.

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

United are favourites to win, and they are available at their best odds of 2/5 at Bet365.

West Ham United captain Mark Noble has confirmed he bears no grudge towards Paul Pogba after their on-pitch "fight", Mirror reports.

Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford will also come back in the starting lineup after failing to start against West Ham.

He said: "I'd have to say Scholesy because I just played so close to him, you know".

"So I think it was good, competitive". They had made an impressive start to their season under Marco Silva, but it didn't last long due to multiple reasons.

The Frenchman, 25, has endured a hard season at Old Trafford, with Mourinho leaving him out of the starting line-up for both legs of the Champions League last-16 defeat by Sevilla.

"But when the game goes to 70, 75 minutes, you don't win, you don't lose, you do the job".
