Man City crowned Premier League champions

"City won the title because they won more points than everyone else, not tell City they won the title because United did not win, it is not fair to them".

"I'll tell you what I told him after the match", Mourinho told reporters ahead of facing rock-bottom West Brom on Sunday, where an unlikely defeat would see City crowned champions. It means we can now focus exclusively on the breathtaking football, the power and vision of Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling's development, Leroy Sane's unstoppable surges down the left, Kyle Walker's dominance of the right flank and Guardiola's determination to win his way. United came hard at the Baggies in the dying staged but was not able to mount a comeback. Guardiola's men also broke club records by going 28 games unbeaten in all competitions and, incorporating the end of last season, went 30 games unbeaten and recorded 20 consecutive wins at home.

Here's what pundits, managers and players have said after City won the league...

United's loss to West Brom hands City the title, and after the match Mourinho gave his reaction to this development; one that has been a very long time. They've been by far the best team in the league.

They travelled to Tottenham on Saturday - an in-form Tottenham, unbeaten in the league since December - and tore them apart at Wembley.

When the pressure was really on, City delivered, but the same could not be said of their rivals.

Pogba was substituted after 57 minutes of United's defeat and Mourinho did not make any attempt to hide his unhappiness with the team's performance and the inconsistency of his most expensive player.

Their dominance of the league, with 28 wins and just two defeats bear that out, but the circumstances in which they have been handed the title were surprising. Too many matches over the last few seasons, under both Mourinho and his predecessor Louis van Gaal, have followed the same storyline as this one. I have lots of experience because I won eight titles and I was not over the moon. but I saw lots of people who were on the moon.
