Best moments from Man City's title winning season

Paul Pogba's Manchester derby salvo has filled Michael Carrick with optimism ahead of his retirement from professional football

At last, Manchester City's players can enjoy a serene Premier League title triumph.

"I trust in my work, that is for sure - I have no reason not to trust", he said.

City finally took the Silverware, clinching their fifth league title in their history, their third Premier League title. In sealing the league at this stage, City matched the record for the earliest title win - held by United since 2001.

'What is the criteria for a manager to choose a team?' said the United manager, who put Pogba on the bench for both legs of the Champions League tie against Sevilla.

"Consistency at every level, not just the performance level, but the mental, the day by day, everything must be consistent until the last day".

"Or do you want me to go for the price they cost, or their salary, or their attractive face?"

Instead, Mourinho accused his players of being "masters in complicated football", trying too many tricks and flicks and taking one too many touches against supposedly inferior opposition, who won via Jay Rodriguez's second-half header from a corner despite United dominating possession.

Gorgeous Maria Salaues was spotted arriving at Old Trafford before the Red Devils' game with West Brom. Everything was complicated. We couldn't think fast, we couldn't play fast. Players didn't play simple. "One thing we have to improve is consistency". As I was saying: this is a very hard league and all the top-six teams, we knew in advance that two of them would be outside the Champions League positions.

The Portuguese manager said that City deserved their title and he had offered them his congratulations after the derby win.

Manchester City players have had to wait a week longer than they would have liked after prematurely booking celebratory tables at restaurants across Manchester in anticipation of a home win over their closest rivals. "We did not deserve to lose, but we gave them opportunity to win the match".

City have unquestionably been the best team in England but their status has been undermined by their Champions League exit.

They won it in the last remaining seconds in 2012, and in the final match in 2014.

Read what the boss had to say about Alexis Sanchez's form, United's positive Premier League momentum and this weekend's "dangerous" match against West Brom... "A bad day and a bad result", Mata said. I suppose my team-mates will roll their eyes a little bit but I kind of want to see what the reaction is now.

"With only two midfield players, you can not play with one at risk of not being able to make a foul".
