West Ham United manager David Moyes said he was happy with his side’s clean sheet

Michael Carrick's 464th and final Manchester United game - barring an unlikely appearance in the FA Cup final against Chelsea on Saturday - featured a vintage moment via a superb pass that created Marcus Rashford's first-half victor.

However, the victory was rarely in doubt after they went ahead, Watford struggling to craft much in reply as United finished on 81 points, the 19-point gap to champions Manchester City an illustration of the improvements the Premier League runners-up must make next season. You can be negative until the point that you say that Scott McTominay, who is a kid who arrived here at nine years old, is not good enough.

Explaining his vision for next term, the Portuguese said: "Moving forward I will organise my coaching staff in a way where the assistant manager figure doesn't exist. The intelligent student is now a football expert, ready for a successful career as a manager".

The game against Watford is an opportunity to put on a show in front of the fans before next weekend's FA Cup final against Chelsea.

Marcus Rashford returns to lead the attack as Jose Mourinho has made wholesale changes.

"Martial is injured. He was injured on Friday, yesterday he couldn't train".

It is said that the Old Lady value Sandro higher than the £50m paid by Manchester City for Kyle Walker from Tottenham Hotspur nearly 12 months ago and will demand in excess of £55m, although United are keen to keep it at £50m. "He had treatment at the training ground", Mourinho said.

Michael Carrick used his farewell speech at Old Trafford to underline Manchester United's ongoing support for Sir Alex Ferguson's recovery.

"I know that Romelu will be back for Tuesday because he's in the last week [of rehabilitation] and we have to see but Anthony I have no more". "I've made lots of changes in the team not because of that", Mourinho had explained prior to kick-off. The Spaniard timed his run perfectly and teed up a simple finish for Rashford.

Asked after Sunday's 1-0 win over Watford whether he would be replacing Faria, Mourinho said: "No".

"I think they're different games really".
