Last week we were 2-0 down against City and we changed the game to win 3-2. The defeat at Old Trafford helped the Etihad outfit mathematically win the Premier League.

Their squad is crammed full of wonderfully potent performers such as Juan Mata, Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, yet the Premier League table, which shows them 16 points behind City, does not lie.

"I trust in my work, that is for sure - I have no reason not to trust", he said.

"I saw lots of people (over) the moon because we won against City".

Mourinho revealed Paul Pogba's booking contributed to his substitution, adding: 'Paul had a yellow card and before that situation not for a second yellow but you never know. I think in my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency, you win titles, of course, with quality, without quality you have no chance, but you win titles with consistency at every level.

"I knew that sooner or later they would be (champions) and if I was in their position I would be very upset if someone said they won the title because Manchester United lost against West Brom".

"I congratulate them", Mourinho said.

United had the opportunity to prolong City's wait to secure title glory by another week when they took on West Brom this afternoon.

The Portugues was then asked of his frustration considering that City won the title on the back of United's loss.

I will tell you what I told him after the [City] match and it's exactly what I told him - I don't expect you to be man of the match every week, I don't expect you to score two goals every week.

United's record signing was widely praised following a dominant performance in the Manchester derby last weekend but was withdrawn with half an hour to go in the Red Devils' defeat against West Brom.

"We were masters in complication".

"We were masters in complication". We could not play fast, we could not think fast, everything was complicated. Players didn't want to or didn't play simple. "It is one of the things that we have to improve".
