"City won the title because they won more points than us, you are not going to say that they won because we gave them the title. that's not fair to them", Mourinho said.

It is City's fifth English top-flight title, their last Premier League triumph having come in the 2013-14 season.

"City won the title because they won more points than everyone else, don't tell City they won title because United did not win, it is not fair on them". I think with my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency.

"I know that you don't want to read anything after a defeat like this one, that any comments made after the game sound like hollow words", he wrote on his blog. I have been lucky to win three but so many I have missed as well.

Mourinho acknowledged that "Metropolis have been the very best group" within the Premier League, telling the BBC: "Ultimately they'd get the factors, so no dramas when the very best group wins the league". I wish them all the success in the Champions League because it would be fantastic for an English club to go and win.

Because of goal difference, United realistically needed to win all of their six remaining games and hope City lost their last five matches.

"We did not deserve to lose, we gave them opportunity to win the match".

Bartolo Colon Loses Perfect Game In Eighth Inning
Colon finally lost the flawless game when he walked Astros' young star Carlos Correa to lead off the bottom of the eighth. Colon finished the game with a line of 7.2 innings pitched, seven strikeouts, one hit, one walk and one earned run.


More importantly, though, it means Pep Guardiola's City team can not now be caught at the top of the table, thus handing the Catalan coach his first Premier League crown in just his second year in English football. An unbelievable journey to get here!

City have unquestionably been the best team in England but their status has been undermined by their Champions League exit.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, the United boss did not hold back in his criticism of his players, saying: "We were masters in complication". "Very happy to call us champions this year".

Since leaving Manchester United in the summer of 2015, Jonny Evans has transformed into a reliable option in the defensive department and he has built a formidable defensive partnership with Ahmed Hegazy this season, which reflects his leadership qualities in the defensive third of the pitch.

Guardiola had planned a day of golf with his son Marius on Sunday, so the Spaniard might have learned of his first Premier League while on the course. "This is not a dynasty, it is one title we've won. Eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues", he said.

That is just one of a welter of statistical feats that have led some to rank City among the Premier League's greatest ever teams.
