Players, Fans, React To Manchester City's Title Win And United's Loss

Jose Mourinho insists his United players celebrated'in a classy way after their 3-2 derby win

The poor performance of United was lambasted in some quarters, though Oliver Kay of The Times was keen to acknowledge how well the Baggies acquitted themselves during the game. I have been lucky to win three but so many I have missed as well.

Mourinho said the attitude of his players had changed following their victory over Manchester City last weekend.

"I trust in my work". "I have no reason not to - eight titles and three Premier Leagues and the last Premier League was not 20 years ago".

Their squad is crammed full of wonderfully potent performers such as Juan Mata, Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, yet the Premier League table, which shows them 16 points behind City, does not lie. "I believe in myself, but I don't play".

"I don't know if I was the first or second or third but I congratulate them face to face when I had the chance", Mourinho said.

"I'll tell you what I told him after the match", Mourinho told reporters ahead of facing rock-bottom West Brom on Sunday, where an unlikely defeat would see City crowned champions.

While City boss Pep Guardiola said he would be playing golf while the United match took place and a handful of players were reportedly out of the country, captain Kompany was at home watching the drama unfold with his family.

Pogba was substituted after 57 minutes of United's defeat and Mourinho did not make any attempt to hide his unhappiness with the team's performance and the inconsistency of his most expensive player. "City won the title because they won more points than everyone else, not tell City they won title because United did not win, it is not fair on them".

"I saw lots of people in the moon because we won against City".

"I think he has to try to keep that level of stability, and from that stability of course will appear the special match with the special performance like it happened against City". "One of the things we have to improve is consistency".

"With my experience you don't titles with inconsistency".
