Manchester City players celebrate Premier League title win in local pub

With five games to go City, who beat Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, have 87 points to the 71 of second-placed United.

City now sit 16 points clear in top spot with five games to play and could yet to break various Premier League records by the end of the season, with the 100-point mark within their sights.

Following the 20-time English champions shock defeat at home, the Portuguese tactician revealed he trusts in his ability to lead sides to Premier League glory but maintained it can not be achieved without consistent efforts from the team.

"I trust in my work, that is for sure", added Mourinho.

"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.

Manchester City affirmed as Premier League Champions
I don't expect him to score two goals every week, either, but I would like him to be consistent to a certain level. This result will not have any significant effect on the league table beyond placing the title in City's hands.

Jay Rodriguez bundled home the victor on a scramble off a corner kick in the 73rd minute, but for long portions of the match, United looked to be the same listless side with the ball that got predecessor Louis Van Gaal sacked before Mourinho took over ahead of the 2016-17 season.

They won it in the last remaining seconds in 2012, and in the final match in 2014.

Manchester United are now in second place in the Premier League table and looking set to finish as runners-up to Pep Guardiola's men this season.

West Brom's former United keeper Ben Foster dealt with the few real efforts that came from the home attack - keeping out a close-range strike from Romelu Lukaku in the 19th minute and then a header from the Belgian in the 66th.

Juan Mata believes Manchester United still have lots to play for this season after Man City's Premier League title win was confirmed in the most disappointing of circumstances on Sunday.

Premier League title race: How can clubs catch Manchester City?
West Brom had the first chance in the 12th minute, Jake Livermore's low shot saved by a stretching De Gea. He and Mourinho are old rivals from their time in Spain when the United boss managed Real Madrid .

Mourinho says they are deserved winners but the 55-year-old insists he is the right man to bring the trophy back to Old Trafford for the first time since 2013. Having lost just two games all season, it's a remarkable achievement to win the title in April itself with five games remaining. "One of the things we have to improve is our consistency".

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

Mata wasn't the only one at fault for the team's overall performance but it certainly wasn't one of his better days as he struggled to create anything of note.

But realistically, every person in that tight corridor outside the Old Trafford dressing room knew City had effectively taken a huge step towards the title that day.
