EPL: Mourinho reacts to Man City winning title, blasts Man United players

Jay Rodriguez celebrates after scoring the winner against Manchester

I win titles. My last Premier League title was not 20 years ago, it was three years ago. "Our City. Premier League Champions 17/18". His decision to forego the match looked justified considering West Brom's terrible form, but the visitors easily coped with United's ponderous attacks and looked unsafe going forward.

The defeat came just eight days after United momentarily halted City's title celebrations with a 3-2 come-from-behind win at the Etihad.

Jose Mourinho insists that Manchester City's efforts over the course of the campaign should be recognised as the reason for their Premier League title win, not Manchester United's loss to West Brom on Sunday.

While City boss Pep Guardiola said he would be playing golf while the United match took place and a handful of players were reportedly out of the country, captain Kompany was at home watching the drama unfold with his family.

This is Mourinho's second season at Old Trafford and he insisted that his impressive managerial record - at Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid - shouldn't be forgotten.

"If they won they are champions, for all the fans it would be like death. I have never retained a title so I want to see if this team's got it to carry on and be even more successful".

"We were masters in complication, everything was complicated", Mourinho added.

"I saw lots of people on the moon because we won against City. I expect him to be consistent in a certain level", Mourinho told Sky Sports. City are 16 points clear of second placed United, who can only take a maximum of 15 points from their remaining five games. "Our Time. Our City". With three titles in the bag, the club is now officially an English and European powerhouse. City's other two Premier League triumphs, in 2012 and '14, were sealed on the final day. I think with my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency.

The 47-year-old has previously won league titles in Spain and Germany, as well as two Champions Leagues with Barca. He also conceded it was sweet to triumph in a country where some critics claimed his purist principles couldn't flourish.

This new age of football at Manchester City has made them a true contender in the Premier League since 2011.

"As much as this has been a record breaking season, this one's for you, the fans, this is why we do it!" said the skipper. "We did not deserve to lose, but we gave them opportunity to win the match". Now, driven on by stars Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and David Silva, Guardiola's men can focus on establishing themselves among the Premier League's all-time great teams.
