United were defeated 1-o on Sunday by West Brom thus handing the title to City.

The Portugues was then asked of his frustration considering that City won the title on the back of United's loss.

A Jay Rodriguez header in the 74th minute consigned United to an embarrassing defeat and in doing so, handed the Premier League title to Manchester City with five games remaining.

It's not fair, for them. I believe in myself.

The 2017-18 campaign is the first time Jose Mourinho has finished his second season at a club without winning a domestic league title.

The 28-year-old said via ESPN: "I'm going to fulfill the year I've got left but I don't know if I will renew, We have started talks but nothing is decided yet". You win, of course, with quality, but with consistency in every level, not just the performance level but also the mental level.

'We deserve to be punished, but the defeat was too heavy, ' Mourinho said. The defeat at Old Trafford helped the Etihad outfit mathematically win the Premier League.

The France worldwide has blown hot and cold at Old Trafford this term but produced an unforgettable performance in last weekend's Manchester derby to help the Red Devils overturn a 2-0 deficit to win 3-2.

Jose Mourinho admits Paul Pogba needs to show much more consistency in his performances and has challenged the midfielder to maintain the form that saw him nearly single-handedly dismantle Manchester City last week.

"Probably because I won eight championships I was not on the moon with the victory against them because that doesn't make me feel super-happy".

"We didn't want [to play] or couldn't play simple, everything was slow, one more flick, trick, turn". "West Brom outworked them; they wanted to go out and hurt them".
