Mourinho to drop under-performing stars for FA Cup semi-final

Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku shows his dejection after the final whistle of the English Premier League soccer match against West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford Manchester England Sunday “I have my goals in mind” – Manchester United player gives huge hint he's leaving club

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.

"I am sure there's any number of things you can put your finger on, but ultimately it's us that go out on the pitch and we don't get the results".

"Collapse in the sense that motivation and quality go down and I think that is the proof of what the group is - a group of good guys".

A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in flawless style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate.

"By losing lots of balls, with turnings and flicks and tricks, the midfield players and central defenders are at risk of one touch, one late challenge and they are out", Mourinho continued.

But Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute header gave West Brom a stunning victory after they arrived at Old Trafford having lost nine of their previous 10 games.

The former Real Madrid boss brought in the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof, Alexis Sanchez and Nemanja Matic spending 170 million plus Alexis Sanchez's salary and fee just this season. Maybe also City will invest massively and they don't let the others close the gap to them, I don't know. The League Cup and Europa League successes past year were supposed to be pointers towards greater things in Mourinho's second season.

Manchester City Cleared Over Garre Signing
That led the Argentine club to take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), who presided over the final ruling. The court will publish the reasoned verdict on Friday.

"You don't win titles with inconsistency", Mourinho said.

Jose Mourinho said he "smelt" defeat ahead of the clash with West Brom on Sunday.

"We haven't scored enough goals and we've conceded too many goals, so that's a bad combination to have".

Red Devils' supporters were bitterly disappoint by their side's performance and that it came on the back of beating the Sky Blues in incredible fashion last week.

With Manchester City winning the Premier League title with five games left, many expect Manchester United to spend heavily in the summer to catch up.

With a swift return to action away to Bournemouth tomorrow and the FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham on Saturday, United have little time to lick their wounds.

"And he had a yellow card, so he was in a more hard position than others".
