Man Utd at their best haven't come close to City

Man Utd at their best haven't come close to City

City lost three successive games in which they were dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool and missed out on the chance to seal title glory against rivals Manchester United. In sealing the league at this stage, City matched the record for the earliest title win - held by United since 2001.

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.

Manchester City players chose to celebrate their Premier League title win in a local pub with their faithful supporters on Sunday.

"City won the title because they won more points than everyone else, they were the best team".

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

"I trust in my work, that's for sure", said Mourinho. "I believe in myself but I don't play".

We were masters in complicated football.

Their fans, who had celebrated the comeback victory at the Etihad last week, booed Jose Mourinho's side off the field after they lost to a team who had not won since January.

"Everything is to play for as I've said all along, we're in a relegation battle until we're safe".

More news: Premier League title can help Man City grow in stature - Pep Guardiola

Manchester United are now in second place in the Premier League table and looking set to finish as runners-up to Pep Guardiola's men this season.

West Brom, to their credit, also kept probing forward but they lacked the class required to really open United up at the back.

Jose Mourinho, Manager of Manchester United reacts during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Brighton and Hove Albion at Old Trafford on November 25, 2017 in Manchester, England.

The 2012 title win had the infamous last-gasp goal by Sergio Aguero.

"Consistency at every level, not just the performance level, but the mental, the day by day, everything must be consistent until the last day".

"Today is a sense of achievement because we've won the title in a way for the first time, I'd like to have won all other titles, so I'm extremely proud about this, and extremely aware of how fast these moments can go".

"I saw lots of people [over] the moon because we won against City".

"I may be the first one thinking about next season".
