Manchester United gifted the Premier League title to fierce rival Manchester City in improbable fashion by losing 1-0 to last-place West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

Other City players were overseas on their few days off, with Leroy Sane watching Borussia Dortmund's defeat at Schalke in Gelsenkirchen. Expanding on what United must do to overcome City, Jose continued: "You don't win titles with inconsistency".

He would have been as surprised as everyone else that the title, seemingly a foregone conclusion for months, was rubber-stamped in such unusual circumstances.

"I knew that sooner or later that would be and if I was in that position I would be very upset if someone said they won the title because Manchester United lost", Mourinho said.

"My team-mates will roll their eyes as I want to see the reaction from us next season as I've never been able to retain a title".

Pep Guardiola's side moved an insurmountable 16 points clear of United with five matches remaining, thanks to Jay Rodriguez's header in the 72nd minute.

After the final whistle, the United manager criticised his players.

It is Abu Dhabi-owned City's third title in seven seasons and their first since former boss Manuel Pellegrini achieved the feat in 2013-14.

Former England worldwide Gary Lineker, who now works as a television presenter, tweeted: "Congratulations to @ManCity on winning the Premier League title".

That is just one of a welter of statistical feats that have led some to rank City among the Premier League's greatest ever teams. "We did not deserve to lose, but we gave them opportunity to win the match".

The first half was a awful advert for the English top-flight. "We wanted to dribble and dribble, and everything was complicated". "The players are aware and there will be no let up from our side with a massive game coming up".

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

Romelu Lukaku admits Manchester United have let themselves down too many times this season.

"It's the same feeling as the first time", the 32-year-old Belgium worldwide, who unlike his manager did watch the game, told Sky Sports.

"It is the same feeling as the first time, you can't describe it", Kompany said.

Mourinho told reporters, "I won eight titles and I am not on the moon because I won against Manchester City".
