Jose Mourinho: What I have asked of Paul Pogba at Man United

Manchester City have won the Premier League title after second-place Manchester United were stunned 1-0 at home by West Bromwich Albion.

Guardiola, speaking after Saturday's 3-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley, declared his own satisfaction at the superb efforts of his squad this term.

New Premier League champion Kyle Walker admits it felt like Manchester City were in a relegation battle during their nightmare 10 days.

City, though, have won 14 times on the road already and could break the record if they win their two remaining trips, to West Ham and Southampton. Last season we finished sixth and this season we are going to finish, hopefully, second, ' he told Sky Sports.

In his post-match press conference, Mourinho made reference to the eight titles he has won in his managerial career and why this was a reason behind why he did not "feel super happy" when his side defeated City last weekend. "I know how to win, I believe in myself but I don't play", added the former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager.

Mourinho claimed the result and subsequent celebrations affected his players' performances in a woeful display against bottom-of-the-league West Brom.

Now they have four, and it comes at the expense of United... at Old Trafford.

United came from behind to beat City 3-2 in the derby at the Etihad.

City could yet finish the season with the most points, goals and wins from a single Premier League campaign. You don't win titles with inconsistency. "I expect you to be consistent in a certain level".

"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 acknowledged that "City were the best team" in the Premier League, telling the BBC: "Sooner or later they would get the points, so no dramas when the best team wins the league".

"We were masters in complication, everything was complicated", said Mourinho. "We have spent a lot of money to have these incredible players, to make that possible".

It is nearly certainly too little too late for West Brom, who look doomed to relegation. "The Premier League is so, so tough", Guardiola said.

"Congratulations to Manchester City on their Premier League title win", they wrote on their official Twitter account.

From an attacking perspective, too, the Red Devils looked to be running out of ideas, even if Ben Foster needed to be at his best to deny a Lukaku header.

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