Mourinho Speaks On West Brom Loss

Manchester City

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.

Jose Mourinho described his Manchester United players as "masters in complication" after their 1-0 home defeat to West Brom handed the Premier League title to Manchester City.

The win confirmed City's place as champions of the Premier League for the 2017/18 season with five games to spare - the joint-quickest any side has won the title. Prior to the clash against the Baggies, United were placed second in the table with 71 points after 33 games.

City have unquestionably been the best team in England but their status has been undermined by their Champions League exit. The defeat at Old Trafford helped the Etihad outfit mathematically win the Premier League.

He also conceded it was sweet to triumph in a country where some critics claimed his purist principles couldn't flourish.

"I will tell you what I told him after the (City) match and it's exactly what I told him - I don't expect you to be man of the match every week, I don't expect you to score two goals every week", he said.

Mourinho said that Pogba was complicating things by taking too many touches.

"I know how to win, I believe in myself but I don't play", he added.

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".

Bournemouth have just one victory in their last eight league matches (1-4-3) but have been a tough out at Dean Court, taking points in eight of their last nine at home (4-4-1) in all competitions. Players didn't play simple.

That is just one of a welter of statistical feats that have led some to rank City among the Premier League's greatest ever teams.

Sitting deep and allowing the relegation certainties push forward with the ball was not the type of football expected following United's title-halting comeback against Manchester City last week, but this is not the first time Mourinho has suffered.

But City, who will stage a title party when they host Swansea on Sunday, have a chance to underline their credentials over their last five matches.
