With Ferrington having suggested that the defeat allowed City to become champions, Mourinho had this to say.
"I had to make a decision: one midfield player out to bring in Jesse Lingard".
"The last Premier League was not 20 years ago, it was three years ago". They won because they were the best team. After all, United can not win them all. They are unbeaten in their last four versus Bournemouth (3-1-0) since a 2-1 loss at Dean Court in the first Premier League match between the teams in 2015.
The United manager remains confident in his own ability but said his side must replicate City's consistency next season.
Congratulations to Manchester City on their Premier League title win.
The 25-year-old, who joined the Foxes in a £17million move from Hull City last summer, has established himself in the England side and is set to travel to Russian Federation in the summer.
The Special One stated: "I'll tell you what I told him after the match - I don't expect you to be man of the match every week, I don't expect you to score two goals every week".
As for City, it has a month to finish a season with the most points, goals and wins in a single Premier League campaign. We are just trying to improve a little bit more.
The first half was a awful advert for the English top-flight.
Jake Livermore forced a smart save out of David De Gea on 12 minutes with a left-footed shot from 12 yards out after being played in on the right by Salomon Rondon, who steered a header well over the target from James McClean's cross on the left moments later. Increasingly poor conditions and a general lack of thrust continued to inhibit both sides, but United did force Foster into wonderfully save on 66 minutes when he tipped a Lukaku effort around the post. I'm sorry, it's much more important what these guys have done this season.
Although the West Brom board are believed to want somebody with more experience, Moore certainly did his chances of becoming the next full-time boss no harm, even if avoiding relegation looks a lost cause.
"After 10 minutes, I turned and there was a weird atmosphere and I could only see West Brom scoring".
