Mourinho Slams Stars As Man City Claim The Title

Jay Rodriguez celebrates after scoring the winner against Manchester

Guardiola, speaking after Saturday's 3-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley, declared his own satisfaction at the superb efforts of his squad this term.

But Jay Rodriguez's 73rd minute header gave West Brom a stunning victory after they arrived at Old Trafford having lost nine of their previous 10 games. "So happy to be able to share another trophy with our awesome fans", the 32-year-old Belgian defender said on Twitter.

The United manager said: "I knew that sooner or later they would be champions and if I was in their position I would be very upset if somebody said that they won the title because Manchester United lost against West Bromwich Albion".

United could then start to blow teams away again and entertain the fans instead of sending them to sleep.

"I don't know if I was the first or second or third but I congratulated them face to face when I had the chance", Mourinho said. I understand how to win.

"They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points". I wish them all the success in the Champions League because it would be fantastic for an English club to go and win.

"I think to compare them to ourselves, Arsenal and Chelsea, you have to win multiple titles".

Mourinho himself noted his team tried to be too fancy, telling Sky Sports, "I think we were deservedly punished because we were masters in complication".

Up to this point, we've had a lot of reassurance and a lot of words from the Prime Minister about this project getting built. It is not clear whether Ottawa's financial and legislative backstops would ensure the pipeline gets built.

Manchester United stayed on 71 points, 16 behind the new champions with five games to play, but with a point more than Liverpool, who also have a game in hand.

Not only that, but Guardiola did it with five games remaining, equalling the English top-flight record of United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85).

"We did it! An wonderful journey to get here".

"We will keep focusing on two goals from here to the end of the season: keeping the second place and trying to get to the FA Cup final and to win the title".

"The mental level, the day by day, everything must be consistent until the last day so one of the things we have to improve is consistency", he said.

In truth, City have looked down on everyone this season virtually since the first ball was kicked last August.

Pogba helped rescue United from a 2-0 half-time deficit against their bitter city rivals last week, with the Frenchman scoring twice in a 3-2 comeback win. It means we can now focus exclusively on the breathtaking football, the power and vision of Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling's development, Leroy Sane's unstoppable surges down the left, Kyle Walker's dominance of the right flank and Guardiola's determination to win his way.
