Mourinho Blames Man United's Players For West Brom Defeat

Premier League on Betfair: Man City confirmed as champions after Baggies shock United

Manchester City has been confirmed Premier League Champion without playing a match on Sunday as West Brom which is languishing at the bottom of the surprised Manchester United with a 1-0 home defeat of the Reds.

Looking for a challenge elsewhere, Guardiola came to England and took over the reigns of Manchester City who has been on a rise for a while and imposed his methodology.

Only a West Brom win at Old Trafford could secure the championship for Pep Guardiola's side this weekend, but a close-range header from Jay Rodriguez in the second half proved enough to end United's slim hopes.

"It's incredible the way we played and I am so glad to be here and be part of this club", he said after the 3-1 win over Spurs at Wembley.

United's comeback at the Etihad from a 2-0 half-time deficit offered their supporters a rare fillip of flair and excitement after a hard season where their style of play has hardly endeared Jose Mourinho to the club's fanbase.

City could have won the title against United last weekend but had to wait after surrendering a two-goal lead at the Etihad and handing Mourinho's team a stunning 3-2 comeback victory.

Mourinho acknowledged that "City were the best team" in the Premier League, telling the BBC: "Sooner or later they would get the points, so no dramas when the best team wins the league".

Mourinho told reporters, "I won eight titles and I am not on the moon because I won against Manchester City. In my opinion, it affected for sure some of the people that were too happy just with that", United manager explained.

Not for the first time this season at Old Trafford United started sluggishly and could have been a goal down after 12 minutes.

Given the way they have demolished all challengers in the league, it was apparent months ago that it was only a matter of when rather than if City would take the title.

Mourinho pulled no punches about his squad's lack of consistency, but the former Chelsea boss made it clear he believes he can return United to the summit of English football.

"In my experience, you don't win titles with inconsistency, you win titles, of course with quality, without quality, you have no chance, but you have to win titles with consistency at every level not just the performance level". "So one of the things we have to improve is consistency".

They were unlucky not to be awarded a penalty after Craig Dawson appeared to trip Ander Herrera in the first half, however, referee Paul Tierney was unmoved. The win on Sunday was West Brom's first in the EPL since January 13.

"I've never been able to retain a title and I want to see if this team can be even more successful".
