Mourinho admits United lacked 'fluidity' during West Brom defeat

Mourinho admits United lacked 'fluidity' during West Brom defeat

Not only that, he did it with five games remaining, equalling the English top-flight record of United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85).

Pep Guardiola's men could have won the league last week but it was Manchester United only that delayed their triumph by defeating Manchester City in a thrilling 3-2 encounter.

Manchester United handed the Premier League title to Manchester City on Sunday after suffering a surprise 1-0 defeat at home to bottom club West Bromwich Albion. Probably because I won eight championships, I was not on the moon with the victory against them.

"You see the difference of attitude of some players today compared with other weeks; relax, too stylish, one more touch, one more turn, one more flick".

"I think we were deservedly punished because we were masters in complication".

"I don't think we deserve to lose, but we gave them the opportunity to win the match", he added.

"City won the title because they won more points than everyone else, don't tell City they won title because United did not win, it is not fair on them".

After a mixed first season in England, Guardiola faced questions about whether his methods were a good fit for the Premier League. "As I was saying, eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues and the last Premier League was not 20 years ago, was three years ago", Mourinho was quoted as saying by Reuters.

"In general open play we had a couple of chances", he said.

Although this performance was particularly bad, many Red Devils fans will point out that this type of turgid display has been commonplace this season.

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

Under the tutelage of Guardiola, Manchester City has been absolutely phenomenal in the current season. They lost only two matches, that is why they were champions.

"We will keep focusing on two goals from here to the end of the season: keeping the second place and trying to get to the FA Cup final and to win the title".

Jay Rodriguez's second-half victor meant City securing the league title with five games to spare.

Although Mourinho says that he is not expecting Pobga to perform like that every week, he does want the midfielder to be more consistent for his team moving forward.

However, the Gunners now risk the ignominy of finishing the season seventh behind Burnley after a fifth consecutive away league defeat as they lost 2-1 at Newcastle on Sunday.

The debate will now rage as to whether this City team is the greatest the Premier League has ever produced, and it is one that has no undisputed answer, with the best teams of United, Arsenal and Chelsea all having their justifiable claim to that title.
