Man City crowned champions after United defeat

Islam Slimani could be heading for the exit door at the King Power

But, despite upsetting City at the Etihad last weekend, Mourinho has urged caution and clearly believes Guardiola will spend lavishly again this summer, while insisting United will not attempt to match his City counterpart's outlay.

"I'm sure the atmosphere will be very positive, so we must take the opportunity to put on a good game and a win for our fans".

For a long time it has been a matter of when and not if City would win the league.

Manchester United have only ever lost one Premier League game at Old Trafford to a side that began the day bottom of the table, to Blackburn in December 2011.

More importantly, though, it means Pep Guardiola's City team can not now be caught at the top of the table, thus handing the Catalan coach his first Premier League crown in just his second year in English football.

City could yet finish the season with the most points, goals and wins from a single Premier League campaign.

AMAC president Dan Weber says the results show that Trump's base stands with him, particularly older Americans. Outstanding total social financing increased 10.5% year-on-year in March, down from 11.2% growth in February.

Realistically it was always a matter of when and not if City would become English champions for a fifth time following a dominant season from the blue half of Manchester.

Few - including Guardiola - expected it to happen on Sunday. Thoroughly deserved and won with a style of football that is truly joyous to watch. Everything was complicated, players didn't want or couldn't play simple, everything was slow, one more touch, one more flick, one more turn, ball lost. There was no fluidity.

This is Mourinho's second season at Old Trafford and he insisted that his impressive managerial record - at Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid - shouldn't be forgotten. Last not 20 years ago, it was three. So, if you ask me, I'm expecting Paul now to be man of the match every week? No.

Guardiola failed last season but in his second term he has added the correct players to his squad, the signing of Kyle Walker has been a huge plus, and he has also got huge amounts out of Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling, amongst many others. You don't win titles with inconsistency.

"I expect you to be consistent in a certain level".

Mourinho and United still has a chance of wining a trophy this season - the FA Cup - and on Saturday face Spurs at Wembley stadium in the semifinals of the tournament.
