Jose Mourinho demands better consistency from Paul Pogba

A week later than they would have preferred, Manchester City have been crowned Premier League champions as second-placed Manchester United suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat to bottom club West Bromwich Albion.

They are eight points adrift of the Premier League record for points in a season, Chelsea's 95 in 2004-05, and can become the first team to break the 100-point barrier, with a total of 102 possible from their remaining five matches.

3 - Guardiola is the third manager to win the Premier League in addition to at least two of the other top-five European leagues, joining Carlo Ancelotti and Jose Mourinho in the exclusive club.

Having seen some of their rivals cut open by City in the early part of the season, teams began to adopt more defensive mindsets against the leaders. Everything was slow, everything was one more touch, one more flick, one more trick, one more turn, ball lost and no continuity or fluidity in our football.

Pogba was singled out by Mourinho and not for the first time this season the Frecnhamn finds himself under fire at Old Trafford.

You are not going to tell that Manchester City won the title because Manchester United gave them the title.

Their dominance of the league, with 28 wins and just two defeats bear that out, but the circumstances in which they have been handed the title were surprising.

He said: "There's players all over the world Portugal, Spain - you name it - wherever".

"I trust in my work", he said.

He added: "You can win the Champions League in seven games, the league is 10 months".

This shouldn't shadow what has been a fantastic season for City, with many fantastic wins helping them on their way to the title.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho stresses that Manchester City won the Premier League title "because they won more points than everyone else".

United, sensing the impact of the result, threw everything forward but West Brom displayed some new-found defensive fortitude and held on for a famous victory. You need consistency at every level.

"We couldn't play fast, we couldn't think fast, everything was complicated", he said.

"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".
