United prevented the Citizens from sealing the title at the Etihad Stadium last weekend after they fought back from two goals down to claim a shock 3-2 win in the 176th Manchester derby.

It is the team's first league title since 2014.

Jay Rodriguez scored a second-half victor to beat a woeful Manchester United and hand a third Premier League title to Manchester City. They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points.

He said: "Probably because I (have) won eight championships I was not in the moon with the victory against them, because that doesn't make me feel super happy". I'm not sure the man himself could quite believe it.

United's afternoon was symptomatic of their entire season.

City now sits 16 points clear top of the league with five games to play and could yet to break various Premier League records by the end of the season, with the 100-point mark within their sights.

Mourinho said: "We were masters in complicated football, everything was complicated".

There seems to be no dearth of interest in him either, with several Premier League outfits weighing up a summer move for the former Manchester United defender.

"I think there's no excuses".

"Everything must be consistent until the last day".


"We could not say that any of the other evidence or competing arguments lead us to prefer one over the other".

The first half was a bad advert for the English top-flight.

West Bromwich took the attacking initiative and were denied an early goal as David De Gea brilliantly saved Jack Livermore's curled shot in the 12th minute. Then, the Belgian sent a heading attempt at Foster, and he made the save.

Jay Rodriguez proved to be the most unlikely of title-deciders when he stooped low to head the Baggies in front on 73 minutes.

West Brom's caretaker manager Darren Moore told Sky Sports: It was important to come here and give a positive performance.

When asked about the possibility of becoming the next Baggies boss, Moore remained coy.

The players and the staff put a real shift in and there is real belief at the club. "I want to bring a family atmosphere to the club".

"Only way we can achieve results moving forward is with togetherness".
