Jose Mourinho demands better consistency from Paul Pogba

Jose Mourinho demands better consistency from Paul Pogba

Juan Mata has told MUTV that Manchester United still have lots to play for this season, despite the inevitability of City's Premier League title win being confirmed in the most disappointing of circumstances.

While they missed out narrowly on that particular record, here are some of the best Opta numbers from City's special Premier League season.

"I trust in my work, that is for sure", added Mourinho.

Manchester United have won 20 league titles and City have always been in their shadow but the boys in sky blue now have the biggest pull for players.

Ten minutes later, Romelu Lukaku should have got the breakthrough for United after he was sent through on goal but Foster made a brilliant double save after also denying Alexis Sanchez with his legs from the rebound.

Just as the Red Devils were beginning to knock on the door, West Brom took a shock lead when Rodriguez converted a simple close-range header from a corner, having been inadvertently teed up by Nemanja Matic. They lost only two matches because they were the best team. Eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues. I have seen many teams win it as champions for the whole season, and it's the first case for us. After going two goals down, United sprang to life in the second half to scored thrice to deny City from winning the title on the night.

Jerry Jones on Dez Bryant Release: Decision in 'Best Interest' of Cowboys
Bryant is a three-time Pro Bowler, but he has not reached 1,000 yards receiving or 10 touchdowns in a season since 2014. Bryant has always been known as a passionate and outspoken player, a competitor who lets his desire to win be known.

Mata knows how significant it could be if this year's team win the trophy in the coming weeks, even if Spurs represent hard opponents at Wembley.

"The mental level, the day by day, everything must be consistent until the last day so one of the things we have to improve is consistency", he said.

City have won the title with five games remaining, equalling the record set by United in the 2000-01 campaign.

"It's incredible the way we played and I am so glad to be here and be part of this club", he said after the 3-1 win over Spurs at Wembley.

Perhaps it is more fitting that they were awarded the title because their biggest rivals lost to the team bottom of the table.

Victory for West Brom came in just the second game for caretaker boss Darren Moore and the 43-year-old believes restoring a sense of togetherness is the key to ending a torrid season on a high.
