We didn't hand title to Manchester City - Mourinho

We didn't hand title to Manchester City - Mourinho

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. This helped them extend the lead at the top by 16 points.

Jay Rodriguez's second-half victor meant City securing the league title with five games to spare.

It was Arsenal's fifth consecutive away defeat in the Premier League.

City can finally call themselves champions in an official sense but that notion has been widely known for some time.

Former England worldwide Gary Lineker, who now work as a tv presenter, tweeted: "Congratulations to @ManCity on profitable the Premier League title". I have no reason for not to trust.

City were hoping to become champions next Sunday if they win Swansea City at the Etihad, but with United's defeat at home to West Brom, the trophy came early. "In my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency".

"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".




If Jose Mourinho-coached Man United can win all of their remaining matches, they can reach maximum 86 points in total. I know how to win.

Mourinho described United as "the masters in complicated football", and said they had been guilty of letting their 3-2 victory against Manchester City go to their heads, arguing that they would not be able to sustain a better challenge next season until Paul Pogba, among others, had started to show more consistency. City skipper Vincent Kompany has now won three Premier League titles since joining 10 years ago.

Ironically, the previous two United bosses had also lost against West Brom at Old Trafford: David Moyes lost 2-1 and Louis van Gaal also lost 1-0.

The host threw everything at West Brom in the closing stages, but were unable to find a breakthrough that would have delayed City's title confirmation until at least Wednesday when United take on Bournemouth.

Only time will tell how good this City team is, and whether they are the best we have ever seen in the Premier League, but one thing that can not be denied is that they are the best we have right now - and by some distance. "In my opinion, it affected for sure some of the people that were too happy just with that", United manager explained.

"They beat us over the two games and that's all you can say". "We are frustrated ourselves with the performance and what we have to do is, from tomorrow, think about the next game and keep going, because we have very important weeks ahead". Players didn't play simple.
