Jose Mourinho Says Manchester United 'Deservedly Punished' After West Brom Loss

Romelu Lukaku Paul Pogba and the other United players pumped out music at top volume when they returned to the dressing rooms at the Etihad Stadium

The Citizens opened a 16 point gap over their city rivals after beating Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 at the Wembley Stadium yesterday to inch closer to winning the EPL title this summer.

"In my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency, you win titles, of course with quality, without quality you have no chance, but you have to win titles with consistency at every level not just the performance level".

After a mixed first season in England, Guardiola faced questions about whether his methods were a good fit for the Premier League.

"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.

Mourinho accused his players of taking their eye off the ball after the City game.

José Mourinho said he could "smell" a bad performance coming from Manchester United after the 1-0 defeat by bottom-of-the-table West Bromwich Albion that confirmed Manchester City as Premier League champions and left him questioning his players' attitude. That didn't make me feel super happy and, in my opinion, it affected some of the people that were too happy.

Really? Man City boss Guardiola fears Man Utd 'can win the league'
Argentina global Aguero came off the bench as City attempted to salvage their Champions League tie with Liverpool on Tuesday. The Manchester United full-back was not punished for the studs-up tackle, which left Aguero floored late in the second half.

But Jay Rodriguez's 73rd minute header gave West Brom a stunning victory after they arrived at Old Trafford having lost nine of their previous 10 games.

During his analysis his Sky Sports, he remarked: "Something was weird, from Pogba where he was playing, the atmosphere, the team, it's so weird from what we saw a week ago - the energy, desire and commitment".

"Hopefully we can celebrate with our fans against Swansea (next weekend) and be champions because they deserve it". Everything was slow. Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn. Everything was complicated. Players didn't want to or didn't play simple.

I won titles. I wouldn't be happy if somebody tells that I won the title because somebody lost a match.

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

"They won the title because they were the best team".
