Mourinho speaks on Paul Pogba's display against West Brom

REUTERS  Russell Cheyne

Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions on Sunday as Manchester United crashed to a shock 1-0 defeat against West Bromwich Albion.

Spurs dominated the proceedings during United's previous visit to Wembley in the Premier League, and though the fixture is considered a neutral venue this time around, their rivals should have the ascendancy with the better feel of the surroundings.

Pogba was the star of the show as Manchester United came from two goals down to secure an impressive 3-2 win over Manchester City in the derby clash earlier this month. 'We were deservedly punished, ' he said. We are a team that in the last three matches [against] Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City, has won all of them.

It's the third Premier League success for the club after the titles won in 2012 under Roberto Mancini and 2014 under Manuel Pellegrini, with captain Vincent Kompany, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure involved in all of them. It is hard to speak about Manchester City for me, but what Pep Guardiola has done is unbelievable; to win the title with the football he plays is great.

It's up to Mourinho to make sure that never happens again.

I'm sorry, it's much more important what these guys have done this season.

The 31-year-old played on the top line in Game 1, but was bumped down to the fourth in the second period after going down 4-0. Rickard Rakell and Ryan Getzlaf will set the tone, and the Ducks win on the road and start to turn this series around.

"I trust in my work". It's good for the Premier League as well. And that's not me [losing my head after a win].

'I'll tell you what I told him after the match - I don't expect you to be man of the match every week, I don't expect you to score two goals every week.

"Everything must be consistent until the last day". Only in the latter stages did we come into the game with the ball.

Jake Livermore had one decent effort saved by David De Gea and Lukaku smashed an effort right into Ben Foster's face but that was about it.

Paul Pogba nearly opened the scoring for the Red Devils in the eighth minute with a drive from 25-yards but the Baggies goalkeeper Ben Foster smothered the strike. Darren Moore is in temporary charge following the sacking of Alan Pardew and this will be a big test of his credentials up against one of the powerhouses of the sport.

He is keen to focus on ensuring that last weekend's superb comeback against City does not curdle into complacency against West Brom. 'I have lots of experience and that's not me because I won eight titles.
