Jose Mourinho: 'City won because they were the best team'

Shannon Reynolds | 16 April, 2018, 09:29

The Red Devils mounted a memorable comeback to win 3-2 at the Etihad last Saturday.

Over £12m was traded on the 2017/18 Premier League Winner market, but with City effectively running away with the title - eventually winning it with five games remaining - no team other then the winners traded at odds-on, or even notably shorter than their pre-season odds.

Their dominance of the title race has been so emphatic and convincing that every one of their so-called rivals has been beaten by City at least once, and none of them has been able to prevent Pep Guardiola's team from winning the title with a month to spare.

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

However, speaking before todays game against West Brom, Jose Mourinho has sent a message to the former world record signing, insisting he will become a more consistent player if he puts more work in on the training field.

Yet all that brilliance came after an opening 45 minutes that had been more typical of his club form this season; out of sorts, misplacing passes and lacking in verve. Everything was slow. Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn.

This is Mourinho's second season at Old Trafford and he insisted that his impressive managerial record - at Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid - shouldn't be forgotten. We deserve to be punished, but the defeat was too heavy.

But Mr McKay said "the attorney-client privilege can't at the same time be used as a sword and as a shield". Michael Avenatti , a lawyer for Stormy Daniels , also made an appearance at the hearing.

With 87 points from 33 matches, City win their first Premier League title since 2013-14 under Manuel Pellegrini and their third since being bought by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008. You could see the difference in the attitude to players compared to last week.

After spending time on the bench in March, Pogba scored twice in the second half to help United rally to a 3-2 win and deny City the title for the time being.

"If we focus all of our energy into the next match, I'm sure it'll look after itself".

You are not going to tell that Manchester City won the title because Manchester United gave them the title.

United should have had a first-half penalty after Craig Dawson caught Ander Herrera, but complacency seeped in and West Brom showed fight under caretaker boss Darren Moore that has been sorely lacking this season.

"We couldn't play fast, we couldn't think fast, everything was complicated", he said. You need consistency at every level.
