Mourinho admits City 'the best team' after loss hands rivals title

Pep Guardiola's men were crowned champions after Manchester United's shock 1-nil defeat to West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford yesterday.

Kompany, whose return to regular fitness has been a key factor in City's success this season, said there could be no talk of domination after they won a first league title since 2014.

Asked what he thought of gifting the title to their rivals, Mourinho replied: "City were the best team, sooner or later they would get the points, so no dramas when the best team wins the league". Because last season against other contenders we were not so good.

Vincent Kompany of Manchester City celebrates after scoring his sides second goal during the Carabao Cup Final between Arsenal and Manchester City at Wembley Stadium on February 25, 2018 in London, England. Guardiola said in March that Mateo was "doing well" and, following confirmation of City's title triumph, Silva thanked fans on social media for their support during a "tough year", attaching a photo of himself holding his son. You simply have to see this video to believe it, it has received over 2000 retweets on Twitter so if it is an outrageous marketing strategy you have to say it has worked.

But success hasn't come cheap for Pep Guardiola's team, as his world-class team nearly completely comprises of an expensively assembled squad of top players purchased for high transfer fees.




Guardiola's team has lost only two league games this season and if they win their remaining five games would end the campaign with 102 points.

City now boast an away points total of 44 following their 14 wins, two draws and one defeat - the famous 4-3 thriller at Anfield in January.

City tied the record for earliest date of sealing the Premier League title, sharing the mark with the 2001 United squad.

But to the surprise of many football pundits and lovers, Manchester United were beaten at home as Manchester City dethroned Chelsea as EPL Champions. And going by the plethora by records they can break going forward, with five games still left, it seems their deolition job is not yet over. I've never retained a title'.

Kompany was roared on as he spoke, with fans and players breaking into the "championes" chant when their skipper had stopped speaking. City were only five games into the season. I'm sorry, it's much more important what these guys have done this season.
