What Mourinho Told Pogba Immediately After Manchester Derby Win

A week later than they would have preferred Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions on Sunday after second-placed Manchester United suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat by bottom club West Bromwich Albion.

16 - With their victory at Wembley - and United's loss to West Brom - City are 16 points clear at the top and chasing down the Premier League's largest title-winning margin of 18, which was set by the Red Devils in 1999-00.

Jose Mourinho's side had kept the title race just about alive with a dramatic 3-2 derby win in their previous game, but a dismal performance against the league's bottom club means they can not now finish higher than second place.

5 - City match the English top-flight record by claiming the title with five games to spare, equalling the efforts of United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85). That didn't make me feel super happy and, in my opinion, it affected some of the people that were too happy.

"I will tell you what I told him after the (City) match and it's exactly what I told him - I don't expect you to be man of the match every week, I don't expect you to score two goals every week", said Mourinho.




The Premier League title is the 24th trophy of the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss' managerial career. I think with my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency.

"Three or four years ago I probably wouldn't have thought I'd go down that route", he said.

"Unbelievable season for us", said midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, perhaps City's standout player over the past eight months. By the hour mark, Mourinho had brought on attacking players Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial for central midfielders Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba but things didn't really improve.

"I hope that we can have a happier Monday in seven days". "Everybody is equal at the football club and we're all in it together". "The amount of goals, chances and points, to do that in the Premier League, with the contenders we have, is because the players are so good". Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn'.

City did not lose a game until January - against Liverpool - and drew just twice until that memorable clash at Anfield, while smashing five past Liverpool at the Etihad early in the season, as they stunned opposition, supporters and critics alike with their performances.
