Jose Mourinho denies Manchester United handed Manchester City the title

16 - With their victory at Wembley - and United's loss to West Brom - City are 16 points clear at the top and chasing down the Premier League's largest title-winning margin of 18, which was set by the Red Devils in 1999-00.

Mourinho feels United are quick to face criticism when things go wrong, but believes those claims are rarely countered by plaudits despite occupying second spot in the English top-flight and having proved their worth against the very best in the business.

A week after an inspiring comeback win against Manchester City, Manchester United fell to a 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford against bottom club West Bromwich Albion on Sunday and manager Jose Mourinho said such inconsistency needed to change if they were to challenge their neighbours next season.

For all of United's class recently and across season in general, it was a calamity of errors and an unwanted punchline to their campaign.

Pogba was substituted after 57 minutes of United's defeat and Mourinho did not make any attempt to hide his unhappiness with the team's performance and the inconsistency of his most expensive player.

The defending was poor for Jay Rodriguez's victor with Nemanja Matic essentially providing the assist and Romelu Lukaku completely losing his marker.
