JOSE MOURINHO PLAYED down the significance of Manchester United's home surrender to West Brom on Sunday, signalling that Man City deserved to win the Premier League on their own merits. They are presently on 87 points and if Man U win all their remaining games, they can not go beyond 86 points. "Don't say City won the title because United did not win, it is not fair on them", he said.

Going into the game off the back of a thrilling comeback against City, United were expected to further halt their noisy neighbours' title charge with a win against Championship-bound West Brom. I won 8 titles.

He won three league titles with Barcelona and twice lifted the Champions League trophy during his Camp Nou reign.

The win also made West Brom just the second side to start the day bottom of the table to win a Premier League game at Old Trafford - Blackburn Rovers won 3-2 in December 2011.

"So to come here and win in my first season, it's fantastic for me". They've got a chance to be the first Premier League team to crack 100 points and are well on their way to grabbing 100 goals in league.

The outcome of that game meant that Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions.

Mourinho is quoted as saying by Metro: "I told Paul after the City game I don't expect him to be man of the match every week".

After starting the title party with his Mancunian wife and his United-supporting father-in-law, City captain Vincent Kompany joined team-mates to raise a glass to their success.

'The players didn't want to play simple. Eight titles. Three Premier League. They lost only two matches because they were the best team.
