Mourinho admits champions City 'were the best team'

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

But Jose Mourinho's men still ended up handing the trophy to City with a lacklustre display against bottom of the table Albion, who had won only three times in the league this season before this weekend.

Manchester City won the Premier League title without even playing on Sunday when nearest challenger Manchester United surprisingly lost 1-0 at home to last-place West Bromwich Albion.

Jonny Evans, the current captain of relegation-threatened West Brom, is waiting for Manchester City to come knocking, the Daily Mirror reports. At last, Manchester City's players can enjoy a serene Premier League title triumph.

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.

United's comeback at the Etihad from a 2-0 half-time deficit offered their supporters a rare fillip of flair and excitement after a hard season where their style of play has hardly endeared Jose Mourinho to the club's fanbase.

Eder Militao is on the radar of Chelsea after Manchester City were also rumoured to be interested in the Sao Paulo midfielder, the Daily Mirror reports.

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

A serial victor as a manager with Barcelona and Barcelona, Guardiola ended his first year in England at City without silverware - his only failure to win a trophy since his managerial career started back in 2007. In sealing the league at this stage, City matched the record for the earliest title win - held by United since 2001.

"We did it in the way we wanted to do", Guardiola said at Wembley on Saturday.

"These players deserve all my respect because they have been unbelievable all season".

The City manager's decision to forego the match looked justified considering West Brom's awful form, although Jake Livermore's early attempt was a warning shot that undercooked United failed to heed.

Asked if he would be watching United play West Brom, the Spaniard told Sky Sports, "No [I won't watch], I have golf game tomorrow. And the past two, three weeks I'm really happy with him". "You can't describe it".

Because of goal difference, United realistically needed to win all of their six remaining games and hope City lost their last five matches.
