Manchester United guaranteed a second-place finish in the Premier League with a tame 0-0 draw at already-safe West Ham on Thursday.

Jose Mourinho’s men, beaten 1-0 at Brighton and Hove Albion on Friday, knew a point at London Stadium would be enough to ensure they will end the season as runners-up to rivals Manchester City.

With defences on top, Adrian made a string of saves to protect West Ham’s clean sheet and justify his selection in goal ahead of England international Joe Hart, who returned from illness but was only named on the bench.

United goalkeeper David de Gea, meanwhile, was untested as he ensured he will collect the Premier League’s Golden Glove for the first time by recording his 18th shutout of the season.

Mourinho made eight changes from the Brighton loss, with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford among those dropped, but United could not find a way to beat Adrian, who brilliantly turned a Luke Shaw drive onto the post in the first half.

Back-to-back blanks indicate United – 19 points behind champions City with one round of games to play – are badly missing leading goalscorer Romelu Lukaku, who is battling to recover from a foot injury in time for next weekend’s FA Cup final against his old club Chelsea.
