Mourinho rings the changes for Man United's visit to West Ham

Jose Mourinho Gives Clear Indication of Summer Clear Out West Ham United 0, Manchester United 0: Mourinho's side secure second place as Noble and Pogba fracas enlivens

There was some fanciful talk about winning the December Manchester derby to reduce the gap and then catch City over Christmas. "We need a point to say that only one team was better than us, we need a point to say that 18 teams were not as good as us".

Is the same true of the current United side? If you want proof you only have to look at the reaction to Manchester United's line up tonight. Jose Mourinho spoke on Wednesday about that occasion, briefly putting aside the match against the Hammers. He didn't do much wrong, although David Moyes' side rarely threatened after the opening 20 minutes. For example, United lost to West Brom, and more recently, Brighton.

Manchester United's fringe players had a chance to impress Jose Mourinho against Brighton and Hove Albion last week, and they failed miserably. Players will leave and players will arrive at Old Trafford, but it is the scale of changes that is important.

With little to play for, it might be something of a flat atmosphere in east London on Thursday night.

"In terms of injuries, [Romelu] Lukaku and [Marouane] Fellaini are the two players that are not available for tomorrow".

As of now, it is unclear if Romelu Lukaku will play because he suffered an ankle injury only a few weeks ago.

They are without a win in their final away game of a Premier League season since 2011-12, when they beat Sunderland.

West Ham United, on the other hand, will be focusing on maintaining their lead over Swansea and Southampton.

"The most important quality is to be a man, MAN, capitals, a proper man and football is not full of them".

Meanwhile, Man Utd haven't lost back-to-back games in the competition since May past year, when they lost at Arsenal and Tottenham. And with Butland being one of the stars with the highest profiles in the squad, they shouldn't be surprised if they're inundated with offers in the summer.

What happened to the performance we saw from Manchester United in the second half against Manchester City at the start of April? I think my record, the amount of games I've had, the amount of wins I've got, probably apart from two or three managers there's nobody who's got a better win ratio.
