Sloppy United were punished, says Jose Mourinho

An unhappy Jose Mourinho described his Manchester United squad as "masters in complication" after their 1-0 defeat to bottom-of-the-table West Bromwich Albion, a result that effectively handed rivals Manchester City the Premier League title.

Manchester United's French midfielder Paul Pogba celebrates scoring their second goal to equalise 2-2 during the English Premier League football match between Manchester City and Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, north west England, on April 7, 2018.

"I have won titles, I would not be happy if someone say won title if someone lose a match".

"Everything must be consistent until the last day".

Mourinho continued to point to his own record in the post-match press conference, hinting his side lacked focus and consistency. "With my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency".

Mourinho's men suffered a shock defeat to West Brom in the Premier League on Sunday. You win, of course, with quality, but with consistency in every level, not just the performance level but also the mental level.

"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.

United failed to continue on their winning ways after last weekend's Manchester Derby defeat, as Jay Rodriguez's goal separated the two sides. Probably because I won eight championships, I was not in the moon with the victory against them. "Everyone is disappointed. We didn't play well at all and it's a bad afternoon for us".

'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'.

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