We didn't hand title to Manchester City - Mourinho

Paul Pogba

But with City so far clear at the top of the table it was a question of when and not if their coronation would be confirmed, especially after a 3-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday put them on the brink.

Winning the title with five matches to go makes City the joint earliest champions in the Premier League era - matching the achievement of the 2000-01 Manchester United team.

With only five matches left to be played in the season, Pep Guardiola's team would be champions elect if Manchester United lost their game against WBA on Sunday.

City skipper Vincent Kompany has now won three Premier League titles since joining 10 years ago. Mourinho has not delivered the Premier League title in his second season in charge, and the failure to progress to the FA Cup final is likely to increase the negativity around the Portuguese's managerial position.

Former England global Gary Lineker, who now works as a television presenter, tweeted: "Congratulations to @ManCity on winning the Premier League title".

The group then sang the popular Kolo and Yaya Toure song, as glasses were raised to their third Premier League trophy since the club was bought by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008.

"So happy to be able to share another trophy with our awesome fans!" tweeted City's captain Vincent Kompany.

"We were masters in complication, everything was complicated", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

Jose said we didn't create much in open play because they dominated the ball a lot, you know when you come to Manchester United your work off the ball has to be very good. There was no fluidity.

Do you think United deserved to lose this weekend?

This is Mourinho's second season at Old Trafford and he insisted that his impressive managerial record - at Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid - shouldn't be forgotten.

The Spain worldwide told MUTV in the wake of a disappointing home reversal against West Brom which gifted the Premier League crown to City: "Second position was not done before the game". Last not 20 years ago, it was three. I believe in myself. "The mental level, day by day".
