The rest of the squad was spread out across Europe, and even beyond, on their day off after City's 3-1 win at Tottenham on Saturday night had left the league title agonizingly close.
With the triumph, City have become a three-time Premier League winners - a feat they are achieving in seven seasons.
"It's my first Premier League and I'll take it anyway it comes - I'll tell you that for free".
Mourinho branded his players "masters in complication" in the aftermath of their defeat to the Baggies.
Mourinho also blamed United's overcomplicated play on their defeat to bottom-side West Brom.
A 73rd-minute header from Jay Rodriguez after United had failed to defend a corner won the game for relegation-threatened West Brom and Mourinho said his team had not played the simple football he expects. City devoured a good Tottenham team at Wembley after a week in which they were supposed to have lost their air of invincibility.
They had Jose bloody Mourinho who has never not won a league title wherever he went.
Former England global Gary Lineker, who now work as a television presenter, tweeted: "Congratulations to @ManCity on winning the Premier League title". The last Premier League was not 20 years ago, it was three.
After 33 rounds of matches, Pep Guardiola-coached Man City have 87 points, while Man United have 71 points.
"They won because they were the best team, they lost only a few points".
"Not the defeat, I think it's too heavy, but not to win this match".
"I saw lots of people [over] the moon because we won against City".
"As much as this has been a record breaking season, this one's for you, the fans, this is why we do it!" said the skipper.
In the 12th minute, West Brom nearly took a shock lead but David De Gea got down well to palm away Jake Livermore's low strike inside the box. "Everyone is disappointed. We didn't play well at all and it's a bad afternoon for us".
