Manchester City win EPL title

"Liverpool beat us in two games and congratulations to them. You can not say that Manchester City won the title because Manchester United lost a game".

This was a great example of what is a big issue for Manchester United.

The loss handed City the title, leaving United trailing by 16 points with five games remaining, and Mourinho immediately faced the question of whether he was confident his team could make a real challenge next year. Our Time. Our City.

The Premier League's bottom side West Bromwich Albion's caretaker boss Darren Moore has kept the team that drew with Swansea City 1-1 in their game last Saturday at The Hawthorns.

Guardiola might not have seen Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute winning goal at Old Trafford because he was playing golf with his son instead of watching the match.

City captain Vincent Kompany led the celebrations, tweeting: "Champions!" During the week I was trying to fight that because I was feeling it'.

Joe Fagan inherited a team that had won back-to-back championships and he delivered three more trophies to the Anfield trophy cabinet as the Reds won a fourth successive League Cup, a third consecutive title and a fourth European Cup, this one courtesy of a penalty shoot-out victory over Roma in the final.

They have scored 93 goals and lost only twice all season.

The Portuguese manager also suggested that his side had become complacent after their dramatic comeback win over Pep Guardiola's men last week.

"Unbelievable season for us", said midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, perhaps City's standout player over the past eight months.

"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".

An 18-match winning run from late August to late December laid City's platform for the runaway title victory, and it was only a matter of when it would be clinched.

Few expected it to happen on Sunday.

Mourinho told reporters, "I won eight titles and I am not on the moon because I won against Manchester City".

United's comeback at the Etihad from a 2-0 half-time deficit offered their supporters a rare fillip of flair and excitement after a hard season where their style of play has hardly endeared Jose Mourinho to the club's fanbase.

He has picked up four points from his opening two games in charge, and accepted that supporters might now start linking him with the job.

On City being crowned champions, Mourinho added: "I congratulated them face to face when I had the chance to do it".
