Manchester City win EPL title

Adjust Comment Print

United prevented the Citizens from sealing the title at the Etihad Stadium last weekend after they fought back from two goals down to claim a shock 3-2 win in the 176th Manchester derby.

Manchester City won the English Premier League title on Sunday after rivals Manchester United stumbled to defeat against relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion.

Mourinho is quoted as saying by Metro: "I told Paul after the City game I don't expect him to be man of the match every week".

"Congratulations to Manchester City on their Premier League title win", they wrote on their official Twitter account.

He said: "There's players all over the world Portugal, Spain - you name it - wherever". It was supposed to be a game that would see City stumble again and perhaps suffer a fourth successive defeat, yet they did what all great teams do by winning and winning well.

United's loss to West Brom hands City the title, and after the match Mourinho gave his reaction to this development; one that has been a very long time.

But Mourinho argued after the final whistle that the title win was inevitable, and that the exact game in which the Premier League was secured mattered little. United is now just one point above third-place Liverpool.

However, when questioned on how City compare to his Chelsea team which won the league a couple of years ago, Mourinho was reluctant to comment.

It was Pallikal's second silver medal of the Games as she and Sourav Ghosal had lost in the mixed doubles final earlier. The Gold won by Pallikal and Chinappa in 2014 was India's first ever squash medal at the Games.


Guardiola has won the League Cup already for City this season but a first Premier League title, to go with the three La Liga titles he won as manager of Barcelona and the three Bundesliga titles he delivered for Bayern Munich, will be particularly satisfying for the Spaniard.

Guardiola's team has lost only two league games this season and if they win their remaining five games would end the campaign with 102 points.

"I think we deserved that punishment for sure".

"We are a team that has already more points than last season, a team that's had brilliant matches and a team that showed character many times".

"We didn't want [to play] or couldn't play simple, everything was slow, one more flick, trick, turn".

"We always gave them the opportunity to be solid and compact". We could not play fast, we could not think fast, everything was complicated.

WE SHOULD HAVE HAD A PENALTY IN THE FIRST HALF "Paul Tierney [the referee] was unlucky in one decision [the challenge by Craig Dawson on Ander Herrera] but I don't blame him at all - it's football".
