Mourinho sends stern message to United stars after City's Premier League win

Mourinho sends stern message to United stars after City's Premier League win

The Reds slipped to a surprise loss against the relegation-threatened Baggies at Old Trafford, courtesy of a second-half header from Jay Rodriguez.

19 - City have beaten every opponent in the Premier League this season, becoming the third team in history to do so, after Chelsea (2005-06) and Manchester United (2010-11).

And many City fans were ready to settle on winning the league next Sunday when they host Swansea at the Etihad.

Speaking ahead of Sunday's visit of West Brom, where United need to avoid defeat to prevent their bitter rivals City from being mathematically crowned champions, Mourinho issued a challenge to former world-record transfer Pogba.

Mourinho claimed afterwards that he had not been happy after the City result because he knew they would win the league regardless and he accused some of his players of getting carried away. That's Liverpooling more than Liverpool have ever Liverpooled this season.

Mourinho attempted to end the stalemate - and the tedium - by introducing Anthony Martial with half an hour remaining and his introduction undoubtedly lifted the quiet Old Trafford atmosphere.

Jose Mourinho only mentioned that he'd won eight championships and three Premier League titles six times in his post-match press conference.

And that decision backfired as United players supposedly said: "Booked tables have you?"

"He annoys me, because I know he's capable of a hundred times more", said Christophe Dugarry, a striker in France's 1998 World Cup-winning side, this week.

Their dominance of the league, with 28 wins and just two defeats bear that out, but the circumstances in which they have been handed the title were surprising. Here are some of the most impressive stats from their title win.

Pogba was substituted after 57 minutes of United's defeat and Mourinho did not make any attempt to hide his unhappiness with the team's performance and the inconsistency of his most expensive player. "If I expect him to score goals every match? No". "I saw lots of people in the moon because we won against City". 'We were masters in complication. By the hour mark, Mourinho had brought on attacking players Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial for central midfielders Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba but things didn't really improve.
