Manchester City wins title with Manchester United loss

Mourinho wants strong Man United finish to secure second place

Daniel Sturridge could face United as West Brom vow to ‘keep fighting

Manchester United can not step off the gas following last weekend's derby win over Premier League leaders Manchester City and must ensure they get the points required to secure second place, manager Jose Mourinho said on Friday (Apr 13).

Fans too will be hoping for the same from Pogba, and the man has his chance on Sunday as the Red Devils take on West Brom at Old Trafford.

Second-place United dragged the title race out for at least another week by winning 3-2 at City last weekend, only to gift the trophy to City by losing to a team that is destined for relegation and had just one league win since August.

The loss handed City the title, leaving United trailing by 16 points with five games remaining, and Mourinho immediately faced the question of whether he was confident his team could make a real challenge next year.


"You can't take (winning the league) for granted, I've won three now but there's so many we've missed", he said. I have no reason to not trust because eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues, and the last was not 20 years ago.

It is Abu Dhabi-owned City's third title in seven seasons and their first since former boss Manuel Pellegrini achieved the feat in 2013-14. I think with my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency.

"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", he said. They have equalled the efforts of Manchester United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85) who all won the top-flight title with five games to spare.

The Portuguese gaffer revealed what he told Pogba after the derby win: "I told Paul after the City game I don't expect him to be man of the match every week". I know how to win and I believe in myself.


"This is not a dynasty, it is one title we've won".

"It's incredible the way we played and I am so glad to be here and be part of this club", he said on the club's website. 'We were masters in complication. "Marcus Rashford is the player with the most appearances since I arrived at the club".

Many spotted that Lukaku didn't exactly have one of the best games of his career against Pep Guardiola's side but this is surely a good enough explanation for his "poor" performance at the weekend.
