Mourinho admits champions City 'were the best team'

West Brom caretaker coach Darren Moore praised his staff and players after they produced one of the upsets of the Premier League season, beating Man Utd 2-1 at Old Trafford.

In order to prevent City from being crowned champions for a few more days, United had to avoid defeat against bottom club Albion at Old Trafford. Pep Guardiola's side defeated Spurs on Saturday to put the pressure all on Jose Mourinho and his team.

16 - With their victory at Wembley - and United's loss to West Brom - City are 16 points clear at the top and chasing down the Premier League's largest title-winning margin of 18, which was set by the Red Devils in 1999-00. They are now second at the moment and while six points from the remaining six games would guarantee a Champions League spot for next season, the Portuguese manager should be really looking for a second place finish - and a maximum return of points - which would take their total across the impressive 80-point mark. "And the past two, three weeks I'm really happy with him". I'm not sure the man himself could quite believe it. They need to make up 10 points in the last five matches, and that sounds a daunting task for the side.

"Eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues".

Mourinho said: "We were masters in complicated football, everything was complicated". The title win is also the first for a Spanish coach in the Premier League.

"I trust in my work".

"I think there's no excuses".

"You win titles with consistency at every level, not just the performance level but the mental level and the day by day". Then, the Belgian sent a heading attempt at Foster, and he made the save. Off of a corner kick, Nemanja Matic headed the ball into space, and Jay Rodriguez was in the right place at the right time to head it past de Gea. And for £3 million, it would surely be hard for any team in the top flight to argue that he would not be a smart signing in an era that sees some fringe players move for 10 times that amount.

With a nod perhaps to next season, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger paired Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang up front and they combined for the goal, with Aubameyang clipping over a cross that Lacazette finished on the slide.
