Gift-wrapped: Man City champions as United crash on Guardiola golf day

United simply had to avoid defeat to keep the title race mathematically alive, but a late header from Jay Rodriguez gave West Brom a hugely surprising three points and finally gave their fans something to cheer this season.

Mourinho told reporters, "I won eight titles and I am not on the moon because I won against Manchester City".

"We've won the league for you, Man City, Man City", West Brom's fans chanted after the final whistle.

"You see the difference of attitude of some players today compared with other weeks; relax, too stylish, one more touch, one more turn, one more flick".

Aymeric Laporte and John Stones have been decent this season but with their lack of defensive cover, the newly crowned Premier League champions might get into deep trouble next season.

The 47-year-old also took the German title three times with Bayern Munich, but he believes the unique strength in depth and physical demands of the Premier League makes this triumph among his very best.

Manchester City, who had bounced back after a week of dismal performances trounced Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 on Saturday. That's Liverpooling more than Liverpool have ever Liverpooled this season. But what can not be argued against are the records that City have smashed on their way to the title this season.

"I trust in my work, that is for sure - I have no reason not to trust", he said.

They are still on course to become the first club to hit 100 points in a Premier League season, breaking Chelsea's 2004-05 record haul of 95 points in the process, and they are also in with a chance of surpassing Chelsea's 2009-10 mark of 103 league goals in a season.

"The mental level, the day by day, everything must be consistent until the last day so one of the things we have to improve is consistency", he said.

That delay, however, lasted only one week after Manchester United (22-5-6) were indifferent offensively in a stunning 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford to the Baggies that marked just their second defeat at home to a last-place team in the Premier League era.

The result sparked celebrations among the Light Blue half of Manchester but Mourinho said City's title deserved to be recognised for its true value. The Citizens are champions thanks to the home loss conceded by Manchester United against the worst team in the League, WBA. "In my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency".
