Manchester City crowned English Premier League champions

Manchester City crowned English Premier League champions

"So happy to be able to share another trophy with our fantastic fans", the 32-year-old Belgian defender said on Twitter. "City won the title because they won more points than us, you are not going to say that they won because we gave them the title. that's not fair to them", Mourinho said.

It's been a remarkable season for Manchester City who've gone from strength to strength in the Premier League, affirming their dominance since the opening weekend.

Prior to the match, Manchester United knew they only needed not to lose to Baggies to prolong Manchester City's chase for the title. I think with my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency.

United could then start to blow teams away again and entertain the fans instead of sending them to sleep.

"I have won titles".

City rebounded from the United loss and a European exit at the hands of Liverpool by beating Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, and have 87 points with five games left.

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. Bailly, who was 24 last Tuesday, played against City in the stunning 3-2 win at the Etihad Stadium but his place against Albion goes to Victor Lindelof. "I knew that sooner or later that would be, and if I was in their position I would be very upset (if) someone said they won the league because Man United lost against West Bromwich Albion".

City have won the title with five games to spare, equalling the English top-flight record which was first set by United in 1907-08.

"We did it! An awesome journey to get here". The goalkeeper has shown that he possesses the quality to play in the top flight, making four saves to deny Manchester United a point.

Meanwhile, Vincent Kompany barely let City's title celebrations begin before setting his side the challenge of making it two in a row next season. "And the past two, three weeks I'm really happy with him".

It is Abu Dhabi-owned City's third title in seven seasons.

"We're all winners and we want to win and in those games unfortunately we didn't".

United had just achieved what many deemed impossible, winning the Premier League, FA Cup and European Cup treble.

To put today's result into perspective, this was only the second time in the Premier League that United had lost a home game against a team starting the day bottom of the league.

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