Mourinho slams United as they hand title to City

City's 3-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday left them on the brink of success and Manchester United's surprise 1-0 defeat at home to rock-bottom West Brom saw Pep Guardiola's side finally wrap up the title.

The ownership change has certainly made an impact as City sealed their third Premier League title under the ADUG in a decade after many years of indifferent results of mid-table and relegation battles, which also saw them drop down to the lower divisions a few times.

"Manchester City is not like [Manchester] United or Chelsea - the big clubs in England have trophies and a lot of history behind them".

Pep Guardiola's side won the league with five games to spare, but in a manner most unexpected after a slip-up by their city rivals. How about that taxi driver who isn't EVEN LOOKING at where he's going despite the fact that there are literally THOUSANDS of people in that street.

"That's the reason why they were champions and probably because I won eight championships I was not in the moon [sic] with the victory against them [last week] because that doesn't make me feel super happy". City has scored 93 so far.

The England global scored one against Spurs and won a penalty in a man-of-the-match display, but missed two glaring chances and his prowess in front of goal has always been his weakness. "But do not tell City they won title because United did not win, it is not fair on them".




Guardiola's response was to spend a club record £57 million (US$80.3 million, RM315 million) on Aymeric Laporte from Athletic Bilbao in January, taking his spending to an eye-watering £448 million on 16 players since arriving. I have seen many teams win it as champions for the whole season, and it's the first case for us.

David Silva who has been superb for Manchester City this season however took the chance to reflect on his special year by uploading a photo with his son who was born prematurely in December 2017.

It looks so much more achievable again, because City suddenly looked so good again. "One of the things we have to improve is our consistency". "The last week was tough for us", Guardiola said.

It is the team's first league title since 2014. It's good for the Premier League as well.

"Everything was complicated, they couldn't play simple, everything was one more touch, one more flick, one more turn, the ball lost".
