Manchester City 2017-18: Guardiola's men rack up records in title triumph

Manchester City 2017-18: Guardiola's men rack up records in title triumph

They clinched the silverware 24 hours later thanks to Albion forward Jay Rodriguez's 73rd minute header at Old Trafford.

Had they won it last week against United, that would have defined Guardiola's first title, but City have been so much more than that this season, which is why the long-term uplift of sealing it as they have will do them no harm.

The Red Devils used the action as a payback to replicate what the Citizens did to them in the reverse fixture won by Pep Guardiola's side last December.

But Mourinho argued after the final whistle that the title win was inevitable, and that the exact game in which the Premier League was secured mattered little.

Guardiola, who failed to land a trophy in his first season in charge at The Etihad, opened his account by winning the League Cup in February against Arsenal.

Speaking ahead of Sunday's visit of West Brom, where United need to avoid defeat to prevent their bitter rivals City from being mathematically crowned champions, Mourinho issued a challenge to former world-record transfer Pogba. Manchester City (28 wins) are now just three wins away from this with five games to play.

"We are a team that has already more points than last season, a team that's had brilliant matches and a team that showed character many times". Everything was complicated, players they didn't want to play simple.

Pogba was singled out by Mourinho and not for the first time this season the Frecnhamn finds himself under fire at Old Trafford.

"I saw lots of people on the moon because we won against City".

Midfielder Paul Pogba was United's match-winner against City but produced another less than impressive display against West Brom. We deserve to be punished, but the defeat was too heavy.

He said: "There's players all over the world Portugal, Spain - you name it - wherever".

"I have won titles, I would not be happy if someone say won title if someone lose a match", Mourinho said.

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

"With my experience you don't titles with inconsistency".

"You win titles with consistency at every level, not just the performance level but the mental level and the day by day".

"After beating Manchester City we wanted a winning spirit until the end of the season but today was one of those days".
