Manchester United vs West Brom: "We were too stylish" - Mounrinho

Kinda, but a full yes wouldn't have been vintage Mourinho. "If I was in their position I would be very upset if someone said they won because United lost against West Brom".

At last, Manchester City's players can enjoy a serene Premier League title triumph.

If I play a player against Bournemouth and the player is phenomenal, he plays the semi-final.

United had beaten City in a stunning comeback during the derby, denying them the title, but denied that win was the most important win of the season.

There were few positive performers for United against the Baggies but much of the post-match scrutiny was once again on Paul Pogba.

"We were masters in complicated football", he said.

"We couldn't play fast, we couldn't think fast, everything was complicated", he said. There was no fluidity.

"We always gave them the opportunity to be solid, compact, together with huge physical strong players, they always had time to organise themselves".

"We've won you the league, Manchester City, we've won you the league", sang West Brom's jubilant fans near the end of the game.

A first-half yellow card contributed to Mourinho's decision, but the France global had struggled to find the form that saw him score twice in the 3-2 victory at Manchester City. I know how to win.

Meanwhile, Vincent Kompany barely let City's title celebrations begin before setting his side the challenge of making it two in a row next season.

When asked after Sunday's disappointing 1-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion if he would be rotating his side in preparation for the Spurs clash, Mourinho said: "Rotating is not the right word".

Pogba though will certainly be disappointed to be taken off following his heroics against City but Jose would arguably be more disappointed given his call for more consistency to be shown by the player.

United return to Premier League action tomorrow night at Bournemouth, three days before their Cup semi-final against Tottenham at Wembley. "One thing we have to improve is consistency". You don't win titles with inconsistency.

In the 20 months since, we have witnessed the colourful hairstyles, flamboyant dance routines, jewellery and even a personalised emoji.
