Manchester City win the title: How pundits, managers, players reacted

Jose Mourinho has batted away the suggestion that Manchester United handed Manchester City the title by losing to West Brom on Sunday.

Vincent Kompany barely let Manchester City's Premier League title celebrations begin before setting his side the challenge of making it two in a row next season.

Asked if he was frustrated because City won the title on the back of United's loss, the Portuguese said, "I have won titles, I would not be happy if someone said I won title because someone lost a match".

5 - City match the English top-flight record by claiming the title with five games to spare, equalling the efforts of United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85).

"Congratulations to Manchester City on their Premier League title win", they wrote on their official Twitter account.

It's not fair, for them.

The men of Jose Mourinho fell, at home no less, to the side in absolute dead last place; just eight days after beating top of the table Manchester City at their place.

The Baggies are sitting at the base of the English Premier League table standings and will find it hard to stop a Manchester United side that is pushing to finish second in the league this year.

I don't know if I was the first or if I was the second or the third, but I congratulated them face-to-face when I had the chance to do it. I was unfortunate enough to play against that quality United side that dominated in the '90s, but this side would have beaten them - that's how good they are. I have seen many teams win it as champions for the whole season, and it's the first case for us.

"It's incredible. The first time you win it, you think you'll win all of them".

"That doesn't make me feel super happy and in my opinion affected for sure some of the people that was too happy".

Mourinho was critical of his side after the defeat, per Sky Sports (h/t Jeorge Bird for MailOnline).

"You win titles with consistency at every level, not just the performance level but the mental level and the day by day".

"They won because they were the best team, they lost only a few points. One of the things we have to improve is our consistency".
