Mourinho pays tribute to ‘best team’ City
Premier League This was the fifth season in which the Premier League title was decided at Old Trafford — more than any other ground. Jose Mourinho implied his team had taken their eye off the ball at Old Trafford yesterday, having celebrated wildly denying Manchester City the title in last week’s derby.
“I won eight titles and I’m not in the moon because I won against Manchester City, a match that is just three points,” he said. “I saw lots of people in the moon because we won against Manchester City.”
United midfielder Juan Mata expressed the pain felt by his teammates after they came back down to earth with a bump against West Brom yesterday. “It’s a very big (disappointment),” he told Sky Sports. “Today was a bad game, a bad day for everyone.
“After winning (against) Manchester City we wanted to keep going with a good spirit but we didn’t play well, we didn’t create enough chances.
“It hurts, we didn’t do our job today.”
