Jose Mourinho: 'City won because they were the best team'

Manchester United Ed Woodward Real Madrid Gareth Bale

Manchester City could be confirmed as Premier League champions without playing on Sunday, but only if rivals Manchester United suffer a shock defeat at home to bottom club West Bromwich Albion.

Pogba scored twice in the thrilling comeback 3-2 victory over Manchester City last week.

Last week City exited the Champions League after losing their first and second leg quarterfinal ties to Liverpool, but in the Premier League, Guardiola's team has looked a class apart, scoring 93 goals in 33 games.

They eventually got the job done this weekend, though, as a scintillating 3-1 win at Tottenham on Saturday put the champagne on ice and the corks were popped less than 24 hours later when Manchester United surprisingly lost at home to West Brom on Sunday. This helped them extend the lead at the top by 16 points. They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points.

"I think we were deservedly punished", he told Sky Sports.

"I'll tell you what I told him after the match".

"I know them, I smile".

West Brom's victory over United will most likely prove to be a mere consolation at the end of the season, with the Baggies still nine points adrift of safety at the foot of the table, with just four matches left to play.

The next phase is a battle over the procedures involving who may review the materials seized by FBI investigators last week. The request comes after Cohen's home, hotel room, and office were raided by F.B.I. agents on April 9.

It is Abu Dhabi-owned City's third title in seven seasons and their first since former boss Manuel Pellegrini achieved the feat in 2013-14.

"I saw lots of people [over] the moon because we won against City".

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.

"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".

"Unbelievable season for us", said midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, perhaps City's standout player over the past eight months.

Relegation-bound West Brom are unchanged following the 1-1 draw with Swansea City.

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.
