Mourinho Blames Man United's Players For West Brom Defeat

Mourinho Blames Man United's Players For West Brom Defeat

Celebrating the success, Man City's Argentine central defender Nicolas Otamendi wrote on Twitter: "2017/2018 @premierleague CHAMPIONS!"

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

After falling apart last weekend at Old Trafford, City needed a win over Spurs to have a chance to clinch this weekend.

And Mourinho accused his players of taking their eye off the ball after the City game.

"I don't know if I was the first or second or third but I congratulate them face to face when I had the chance", Mourinho said. They have equalled the efforts of Manchester United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85) who all won the top-flight title with five games to spare.

United are second in the table with 71 points.

"I think he has to try to keep that level of stability, and from that stability of course will appear the special match with the special performance like it happened against City".

United's afternoon was symptomatic of their entire season.

Manchester City won the Premier League title Sunday, after West Bromwich Albion beat Manchester United. After completing a year-long sabbatical, he returned to action by managing Bayern Munich where he won the Bundesliga League Title three times.


You look at the signings Mourinho has made. "But he's obviously improving; he's obviously getting more comfortable to play with the team, and I'm pretty sure that, next season, will be better". The Spaniard has accumulated 16 clean sheets in the Premier League and will be looking to add another one, as he chases his first Golden Glove award. I know how to win and I believe in myself.

"I'll tell you what I told him after the match", Mourinho told multiple national newspapers. "But you also win titles with consistency".

"Everything must be consistent until the last day".

"We still need to improve to reach the last level which is the most hard thing".

In the first half, Mata almost found his way towards an early goal.

Paul Pogba nearly opened the scoring for the Red Devils in the eighth minute with a drive from 25-yards but the Baggies goalkeeper Ben Foster smothered the strike.

Manchester United face bottom-placed West Brom on Sunday.

West Brom have a new caretaker manager.

West Brom's goal came after a rapid counter attack. "I want to bring a family atmosphere to the club".
