Sloppy United were punished, says Jose Mourinho

Manchester United suffered a 1-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion, handing cross-town rivals Manchester City the Premier League title.

Pep Guardiola is just the third manager to win the top-flight title in England and at least two of the other big five European leagues, after Carlo Ancelotti (3) and Jose Mourinho (2).

A single goal from Jay Rodriguez gave the Baggies all three points and also meant that Manchester City have been crowned Premier League champions.

The lose for United means that City team can not be displace from the top of the table, thereby given Pep Guardiola his first Premier League title in his second years as that Manager of Manchester United team.

Instead of City likely clinching the title at home to Swansea next weekend, that game at Etihad Stadium will now be a party and a celebration of one of the Premier League's finest teams which could yet break a slew of records by the end of the season.

He added: "They won the title because they were the best team".

"I'll tell you what I told him after the match", Mourinho told multiple national newspapers. I have been lucky to win three but so many I have missed as well.

Few United players could hold their head high after the West Brom defeat.

"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.

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.

Former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic on Sky Sports: They deserve the title, they played really good football for the whole year.

The Catalan, who now has won three titles in three different countries after three La Liga triumphs with Barcelona and three Bundesliga crowns with Bayern Munich, admitted his EPL title was one of his best achievements.

Do you think Man Utd will close the gap to Man City next season?

You are not going to tell that Manchester City won the title because Manchester United gave them the title.

"We didn't want or played simple, everything was slow, one more flick, trick, turn. The Premier League is so, so tough", Guardiola said.

"We are a team that has already more points than last season, a team that's had brilliant matches and a team that showed character many times".
