Mentality Seems To Be Paul Pogba's Problem, Former Premier League Star Feels

Mourinho claimed afterwards that he had not been happy after the City result because he knew they would win the league regardless and he accused some of his players of getting carried away.

Winning the title with five matches to go makes City the joint earliest champions in the Premier League era - matching the achievement of the 2000-01 Manchester United team. "They won because they were the best team and lost only a few points".

United knew heading into this game that if they were to lose, their near neighbours Manchester City would officially become champions of the 2017/18 Premier League.

The 23-year-old performances has caught the eye of Europe's elite this season, and many news agencies expect him to leave Serie A come the end of the current campaign. Reportedly, United have scouted Tierney multiple times this season, and they intend to finalize the deal this summer.

United travel to Bournemouth tomorrow and Mourinho said: "Rotating is not the right word".

Mourinho is ready to ring the changes for Wednesday's trip to Bournemouth and said there would be opportunities for fringe players to secure a spot in the starting XI for Saturday's FA Cup semifinal against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley. 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.

"You win titles with quality of course, without that you have no chance, but you win titles with consistency".

When asked about Pogba's level of performance, Mourinho said: "It was not just him and he had a yellow card so he was in a more hard position than others". "We are just trying to improve a little bit more".

Despite completely dominating the first-half, there were some nervy moments as Tottenham got back into the match, until Raheem Sterling scored City's decisive third. His decision to forego the match looked justified considering West Brom's awful form, but the visitors easily coped with United's ponderous attacks and looked unsafe going forward.

United should have had a first-half penalty after Craig Dawson caught Ander Herrera, but complacency seeped in and West Brom showed fight under caretaker boss Darren Moore that has been sorely lacking this season.
