Jose Mourinho congratulates Manchester City on winning the Premier League title

Jose Mourinho congratulates Manchester City on winning the Premier League title

A week later than they would have preferred Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions on Sunday as second-placed Manchester United suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat by bottom club West Bromwich Albion.

Jay Rodriguez headed home the only goal of the game to keep their faint relegation survival hopes alive.

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.

"My feeling is now that United will win a lot of points because they are in a good shape and have top players".

Club captain Vincent Kompany watched the game at a family members' house, and he was clearly ecstatic after winning his third Premier League title. I have been lucky to win three but so many I have missed as well.

It was a tribute to Ferguson's team-building genius that, just two seasons after the departure of the talismanic Eric Cantona, United were once again at the summit - this time thanks to legendary "Class of '92" graduates Giggs, David Beckham, Paul Scholes and the Neville brothers.

"If you have now 87 points, five games left, it's because we did outstanding when people said it was a big failure what happened last week", he told reporters after the win at Wembley Stadium.

"I trust in my work, that is for sure - I have no reason not to trust", he said.

"After that game I don't know if he'll be ready for the Swansea game (on April 22)". There would've been more tension as Guardiola attempted a 10ft putt on the 18th hole to win the round.

It is an outlay that dwarfs €204m during his title-winning run at Bayern Munich and €342m over a glorious and defining four-year reign at Barcelona.

"Everything must be consistent until the last day". We need five points from six games and our first chance is [Saturday] in one of the toughest games.

Lukaku saw one shot cannon back off the face of West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster, while Pogba's desire to make a difference saw him booked after half an hour for attempting to steer the ball into the net with a very obvious, very deliberate handball.

Increasingly poor conditions and a general lack of thrust continued to inhibit both sides, but United did force Foster into wonderfully save on 66 minutes when he tipped a Lukaku effort around the post.

"It's the same feeling as the first time", the 32-year-old Belgium global, who unlike his manager did watch the game, told Sky Sports.

United, sensing the impact of the result, threw everything forward but West Brom displayed some new-found defensive fortitude and held on for a famous victory.
