Bailly was dropped

Jose Mourinho explains why Eric Bailly is missing from squad to face West Brom

City had moved within touching distance of the title with a 3-1 win at Tottenham on Saturday.

Guardiola might not have seen Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute winning goal at Old Trafford because he was due to be playing golf with his son instead of watching the match. Vincent Kompany did, with images showing the City captain celebrating at his in-laws' house where he was having dinner. "Champions! What a great feeling! So happy to be able to share another trophy with our wonderful fans". At last, Manchester City's players can enjoy a serene Premier League title triumph.

Jose Mourinho has told Paul Pogba to "pull up his socks" in training to realise his potential at Manchester United. I know how to win and I believe in myself. I have been lucky to win three but so many I have missed as well.

'City were the best team, sooner or later they would get the points, so no dramas when the best team wins the league'.

He said: "Probably because I have won eight championships I was not over the moon with the victory against them, because that doesn't make me feel super happy".

Yet the Portuguese also claimed that the final result was harsh on his side:"I don't think we deserved to lose, but we gave them the opportunity to win the match by being solid in defence and sniffing a chance in attack", he said.

United's loss at Old Trafford meant that City were crowned Premier League champions, as they are now 16 points clear of Mourinho's side with only five games remaining.

City have won the title with five games to spare, equalling the English top-flight record which was first set by United in 1907-08. An unbelievable journey to get here!

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as the summer transfer window gives Mourinho the chance to significantly bolster his squad.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, the United boss did not hold back in his criticism of his players, saying: "We were masters in complication".

Now Bookmakers are already looking ahead to next season and City are odds-on to seal back-to-back titles.

The defeat put United's second spot position in danger, as their advantage over third-placed Liverpool was reduced to just one point. It means we can now focus exclusively on the breathtaking football, the power and vision of Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling's development, Leroy Sane's unstoppable surges down the left, Kyle Walker's dominance of the right flank and Guardiola's determination to win his way. I win titles. My last Premier League title was not 20 years ago, it was three years ago.
