Caretaker boss Darren Moore "proud" of West Bromwich Albion players

Caretaker boss Darren Moore

The Citizens had their fate in their own hands last weekend, but gave up a 2-0 lead at home to Manchester United, eventually losing 2-3, meaning they would have to wait for at least another eight days before being crowned champions.

"Manchester City, we won it for you" chanted West Brom fans at full-time as United supporters began jeering in frustration at their side gift-wrapping the title for City.

Mourinho greeted West Brom caretaker manager Darren Moore with a warm hug after the two teams had made their way onto the pitch.

"It was a bad reaction after the City victory, the effect of that is complicated football", Mourinho said. They are the 10th team in top-flight history to achieve this. It is even more important for the next games and we know we have to compete until the last week.

"They always had time to organise themselves".

As for United, they remain second in the table but now have Liverpool breathing down their necks. "We wanted to dribble and dribble, and everything was complicated".

City, though, have won 14 times on the road already and could break the record if they win their two remaining trips, to West Ham and Southampton. Vincent Kompany, trailed by the cameras of Manchester City's in-house television station, was with his family.

City had previously won an FA Cup, two league Cups, FA Community Shield, and two Premier League titles since the take-over of the influential and affluent United Arab Group in 2008.

Jay Rodriguez was the unlikely man to the seal the championship for City with his 74th-minute goal at Old Trafford.

City had moved within touching distance of the title with a 3-1 win at Tottenham on Saturday.

But that day appeared to have come quicker than they realised as City were announced champions on Sunday, following United's shock defeat to relegation battlers, West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford.

As for City, it has a month to finish a season with the most points, goals and wins in a single Premier League campaign.

United now will look to secure second place and build on a slightly disappointing season which saw José Mourinho struggle to get the most out of a very talented squad.
