A furious late spat between Hammers skipper Mark Noble and United's Paul Pogba, which led to a mass altercation between opposing players, will capture most of the headlines after a largely lifeless contest.
"This was good point for us, maybe they will say the same as well. When it is not possible to be champions, second position is the best available which was what we got".
"We are the second best team in the Premier League, a fantastic competition with lots of good teams with six teams trying to finish first", he stated.
Thursday's goalless draw away to West Ham ensured United can not be caught on the last weekend of the season, despite following up Friday's 1-0 loss at Brighton and Hove Albion by drawing another blank in front of goal.
"I could have joined a Premier League club during the season here when I was West Ham manager", he added.
"We have one more game on Sunday and we want to finish strong, then we can go forward to next season".
Overall, I am pleased with the players all round.
"I have played 36 games and if I play the next game it will be 37".
Arnautovic is happy with the fact that the Hammers have ensured top flight action for next season and is of the opinion that the club and their fans deserve to be in the Premier League.
David Moyes is set to leave West Ham when his contract expires this summer, with the club already looking at new manager options, sources have told ESPN FC.
"It is normal that Michael Carrick is captain at Old Trafford for the last game of his career".
"The players went about it really well, with a great attitude and commitment". Of course, people will argue that they did not get close enough to City in the title race but, as far as I can see, this has been a very good season for them. I don't want to be a manager who celebrates avoiding relegation.
