West Brom next manager odds: Former Barcelona star emerges as shock contender

West Brom next manager odds: Former Barcelona star emerges as shock contender

The Blues could have made history though and taken the title sooner if they hadn't lost 3-2 against Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.

He is the first Spanish manager to win the Premier League title - a prize he says is the hardest to claim in Europe.

City put themselves in position to win the league by bouncing back from a bitterly disappointing week to ease past Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 at Wembley on Saturday to remind everyone why they have been the best side in the country by a distance this season.

Jose Mourinho has been advised that signing Willian would propel Manchester United above Manchester City in the Premier League next season, with United reportedly keen on signing the Chelsea star.

Juan Mata has challenged Manchester United to salvage their season with a runner-up finish in the Premier League and FA Cup glory.

"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.

"Whatever you read, I know what really happened".




"We were masters in complication, everything was complicated".

United had to at least draw to keep the title race mathematically alive but they were stunned at Old Trafford when Jay Rodriguez headed home after the break.

West Brom's former United keeper Ben Foster dealt with the few real efforts that came from the home attack - keeping out a close-range strike from Romelu Lukaku in the 19th minute and then a header from the Belgian in the 66th.

With only five matches left to be played in the season, Pep Guardiola's team would be champions elect if Manchester United lost their game against WBA on Sunday. "With my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency".

Mourinho told reporters, "I won eight titles and I am not on the moon because I won against Manchester City. That doesn't make me feel super happy and in my opinion affected for sure some of the people that was too happy". That is consistency at every level and not just the performance level, but day by day everything must be consistent from day one until the last day. Players didn't want to or couldn't play simple.

"I think we were deservedly punished".

"We've won the league for you, Man City, Man City", West Brom's fans chanted after the final whistle.
