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. "I don't know if I was the first or second or third but I congratulate them face to face when I had the chance," Mourinho said. "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. "They won because they were the best team, they lost only a few points. Probably because I won eight championships, I was not in the moon with the victory against them. "That doesn't make me feel super happy and in my opinion affected for sure some of the people that was too happy."
Jose's reaction.— Manchester United (@ManUtd) April 15, 2018
United's afternoon was symptomatic of their entire season. 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. United have scored a full 30 goals fewer than City this season and Mourinho has not managed to get his side to click, despite being able to bring on further talent such as Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.

The first half was a terrible advert for the English top-flight. Jake Livermore had one decent effort saved by David De Gea and Lukaku smashed an effort right into Ben Foster's face but that was about it. The second half was not much better but Foster did wonderfully well after 66 minutes to tip a Lukaku effort around the post before the visitors resistance was then unexpectedly rewarded with 17 minutes remaining. Nemanja Matic panicked at the delivery of a Chris Brunt corner and he knocked the ball back inside to Rodriguez, who could not miss from three yards out.
