Man City equal top-flight record for earliest title win

Jay Rodriguez celebrates after scoring the winner against Manchester

'We were masters in complication.

"We couldn't play fast, we couldn't think fast, everything was complicated", he said.

"We did not deserve to lose, but we gave them the opportunity to win the match". "They always had time to organise themselves".

"Probably in our best period, where we were moving the ball better and the team was thinking faster, they scored the goal in the only way they could score a goal, which was in a corner or in a lateral free-kick".

And it was achieved by playing a brand of football that has had the purists purring all season, with City racking up 93 goals so far and on course to top the 100-point barrier.

He said: "I don't know if I was the first or if I was the second or the third, but I congratulated them face-to-face when I had the chance to do it". "I knew that sooner or later that would happen".

"They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points".

The Ivorian is one of two changes Mourinho has made from the starting XI that went on to win a thrilling Manchester derby last weekend against City.

City have unquestionably been the best team in England but their status has been undermined by their Champions League exit.

"All I'm doing, and I really mean it, is just taking it one game at a time".

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.

He has picked up four points from his opening two games in charge, and accepted that supporters might now start linking him with the job.

Beaten just once while winning 29 of their 38 games, Chelsea finished 12 points clear to claim their first top-flight title in 50 years, and only the second in the club's history.

Mourinho understands what is expected at the club and is confident that he has the ability to bring success in the future.

"I trust in my work", he said.

He said: "We won the Carabao Cup and that was a step in the right direction for me but to be competing in the Premier League since I was 19 and to play all the games I played in the Premier League, to not win the Premier League, it was a bit devastating for me not to have won it with Tottenham". I believe in myself.

The France global has found himself under the spotlight for much of the campaign after seemingly failing to produce consistent performances for Mourinho's men.

"We did not need or performed easy, all the things was gradual, another flick, trick, flip".
