Mata urges United to focus on strong finish

Mata urges United to focus on strong finish

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany via Twitter: "Champions!"

Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling scored for City either side of an Ilkay Gundogan penalty as they bounced back in style from the disappointment of their Champions League quarter-final exit at the hands of Liverpool in midweek.

Rashford has appeared in 29 league games this season but has started only 14 of them.

However, on Sunday, United looked lazy and uninspired and one mistake during the match cost them a humiliating defeat against the bottom-placed West Brom.

Mourinho lambasted his players for over-elaborating in possession, calling them "masters of complication", after they produced a performance completely at odds with the stirring second-half showing in their 3-2 title-delaying victory against City last week.

"With my experience you don't titles with inconsistency".

Manchester City are now champions of the English Premier League for the 2017/2018 season. "I know how to win, I believe in myself but I don't play", added the former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager.




With 33 games played City have won an impressive 28, with three draws and just two defeats.

"Everybody will try to improve - like we did from last season". "It was not done even if we won".

"Today I am happy and I suppose my team-mates might roll their eyes at this, but I want to see the reaction now". After that I wanted more width, and Paul had a yellow card and before that he had a situation not for a second yellow but you never know in football, so I reacted to that.

A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in flawless style against their arch rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate. They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points. City devoured a good Tottenham team at Wembley after a week in which they were supposed to have lost their air of invincibility.

The 28 year old hasn't had the best campaign this time around but has struggled with injuries and will need to win over his manager once more.

So, congrats to Manchester City, to our boy Kevin, and their record-spending.
