Manchester United's Mourinho reacts to Man City title

Manchester United's Mourinho reacts to Man City title

However, City got the final laugh as United slipped up against West Brom to hand their arch-rivals their first Premier League crown since 2014.

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.

And Arsenal, in 2003-04, remain the only team to go through a Premier League season unbeaten, so there are some achievements that this City team has been unable to chalk off.

For all of United's class recently and across season in general, it was a calamity of errors and an unwanted punchline to their campaign.

Paul Pogba, last week's two-goal hero, reverted to his 2018 type here.

The Red Devils sit in second place in the Premier League standings, but are just one point ahead of Liverpool following the Reds' win over Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday. And that only made them even more narrow and predictable.

After sacking Alan Pardew at the start of the month, Darren Moore has been handed the West Brom until the end of the season.

That he replaced Pogba was notable too, with the inconsistencies Mourinho spoke of on Friday in relation to the midfielder's performances never more evident than over the past seven days.

Jake Livermore had one decent effort saved by David De Gea and Lukaku smashed an effort right into Ben Foster's face but that was about it. By the time it happened, it was no surprise at all.

They set new English records by recording 18 consecutive league victories, 11 consecutive away wins and 20 successive wins in all competitions.

Mourinho told reporters, "I won eight titles and I am not on the moon because I won against Manchester City".

As full-time approached, Old Trafford emptied very quickly indeed. "City won the title because they won more points than everyone else, don't tell City they won title because United did not win, it is not fair on them".

Only time will tell how good this City team is, and whether they are the best we have ever seen in the Premier League, but one thing that can not be denied is that they are the best we have right now - and by some distance.
