Mourinho slams United as they hand title to Man City

Mourinho slams United as they hand title to Man City

Manchester United suffered a shocking 1-0 loss at home against bottom-placed West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, which helped rivals Man City win the Premier League title. The victory was only the Baggies' fourth of the campaign, and the west Midlands side still have the slender opportunity of beating the drop. I'm not on the moon because I won against Manchester City, a match that is only three points. Both Pogba and Sanchez appeared to occupy a similar position on the left side of the pitch, and this appeared to hamper the former, who often requires space to thrive.

"I had a feeling when I woke up this morning", Kompany said.

They won it in the last remaining seconds in 2012, and in the final match in 2014. The victory over United was the Baggies' first league triumph on the road since August.

Because of goal difference, United realistically needed to win all of their six remaining games and hope City lost their last five matches.

However, United manager Jose Mourinho doesn't aim to splurge on signings in the summer to bridge that gap.

But a drop in form allowed City to race ahead, leaving the rest of the Premier League in their wake.

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

"We played a bad game this Sunday".




"Towards the end I think you could see the work that we had put in, but the lads stuck in, gave it everything we had and we got the win".

"When we have the ball, we want to run with the ball, we want to dribble, and everything was complicated and probably in our best period where we were moving the ball better and the team was thinking faster and the team had more width was when they scored".

There's considerable patience among United fans and Mourinho is still backed by the vast majority, but he asked to be judged after three years and it's not unfair to judge him, his team and his players after 150 games.

The irony that this is exactly how Manchester City play will not be lost on anyone.

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

Speaking after the win over Tottenham, Guardiola admitted winning the title in England would be one of the greatest achievements of his glittering career.

The visitors took a 1-0 lead in the 74th minute through Jay Rodriguez and stood tall.
