Manchester United 0-1 West Brom: 5 Talking Points

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom: 5 Talking Points

Fans perhaps expected an easy three points for United, especially following their terrific 3-2 win over Manchester City last week, and given that before Sunday's Premier League encounter, the Baggies had won just once in their past 31 matches. "Everything was complicated", he said after the match.

City put themselves in position to win the league by bouncing back from a bitterly disappointing week to ease past Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 at Wembley on Saturday to remind everyone why they have been the best side in the country by a distance this season.

It was already pretty much nailed-on that Manchester City would lift the trophy, but José Mourinho's side was still mathematically in it - until they lost at home to the worst team in the league, that is. Congratulations to Manchester City, who are mathematically the Premier League winners.

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

"I am always a great believer that the truth always comes out and it has", he told BBC WM.


He said, after seeing a solitary effort from Jay Rodriguez down Jose Mourinho's men: "We are frustrated ourselves with the performance and what we have to do is think about the next game and keep going, because we have very important weeks ahead".

The United manager also gave a strong defence of his own record, listing some of his achievements with Chelsea, Real Madrid and Porto, after being asked how United could expect to overhaul Pep Guardiola's team next season. His decision to forego the match looked justified considering West Brom's terrible form, but the visitors easily coped with United's ponderous attacks and looked risky going forward. I believe in myself.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has urged his players to be more consistent next season if they are to challenge Manchester City for the title next season. "Everything was slow. Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn".

I have lots of experience because I won eight titles and I was not over the moon. but I saw lots of people who were on the moon.

But Raheem Sterling scrambled in a 97th-minute victor, and although the England forward was sent off in the celebrations that followed, it proved to be a launchpad for a special season for both Sterling and City.
