17 Avril 2018

Manchester United handed their bitter rivals the trophy as they lost 1-0 to bottom-placed West Brom at Old Trafford following City's 3-1 defeat of Tottenham on Saturday evening.

Soon after United " s defeat on Sunday, the City website tweeted: "Our Time.

Going into the game off the back of a thrilling comeback against City, United were expected to further halt their noisy neighbours' title charge with a win against Championship-bound West Brom.

Mourinho said he could see the weakness of his players mentally all week throughout training and tried to prevent it, but clearly couldn't. City had previously won an FA Cup, two league Cups, FA Community Shield, and two Premier League titles since the take-over of the influential and affluent United Arab Group in 2008. They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points.

The Catalan, who now has won three titles in three different countries after three La Liga triumphs with Barcelona and three Bundesliga crowns with Bayern Munich, admitted his EPL title was one of his best achievements.
