Manchester United's Mourinho reacts to Man City title

Manchester United's Mourinho reacts to Man City title

Are they going to go back to things that they did many, many times in the season - playing with three centre-backs, with five in the back. Said Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to the media after the match.

"I trust in my work".

He added: "I think we were deservedly punished because we were masters in complication".

United now occupy second place in the table but are 16 points adrift of top spot and Mourinho insists greater consistency is required if his charges have designs on wrestling City's crown from their clutches next season.

City had won convincingly against Tottenham Hotspurs on Saturday, leaving their fate in the hands of United team waiting to engage the Baggies the next day.

"City won the title because they won more points than everyone else, don't tell City they won title because United did not win, it is not fair on them".

They signed some lad called Lindelof that was meant to be good, they had the best goalkeeper on the planet too.

When Chelsea won the title in 2015 under Jose Mourinho, they won several games by a single goal in the second half of the season.

Former England global Gary Lineker, who now work as a television presenter, tweeted: "Congratulations to @ManCity on winning the Premier League title. But he's obviously improving; he's obviously getting more comfortable to play with the team, and I'm pretty sure that, next season, will be better".

Pogba was substituted after 57 minutes of United's defeat and Mourinho did not make any attempt to hide his unhappiness with the team's performance and the inconsistency of his most expensive player. Previous times, we almost threw it away and that was a feature of every season we won it. Last not 20 years ago, it was three.

"Today is a sense of achievement because we've won the title in a way for the first time, I'd like to have won all other titles, so I'm extremely proud about this, and extremely aware of how fast these moments can go".

Victory for West Brom came in just the second game for caretaker boss Darren Moore and the 43-year-old believes restoring a sense of togetherness is the key to ending a torrid season on a high.

'We were deservedly punished, ' Mourinho said.
