Jose Mourinho has warned his Manchester United players that Chelsea can still catch them in the race for the Premier League's top four spots.

Manchester United will once again attempt to postpone Pep Guardiola's title coronation as they must avoid defeat to West Brom or hand the Premier League to City on Sunday. "City won the title because they won more points than everyone else, not tell City they won the title because United did not win, it is not fair to them".

All three players started on Sunday and yet were unable to break down a West Brom defence that had kept one Premier League clean sheet in 2018 prior to the clash, although Lukaku and Sanchez are said to be among Mourinho's trusted ranks. "With my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency".

While City's title triumph was an inevitability, United's loss meant that it came a week prior than expected. "Everything was slow. Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn".

"You can't take it for granted.before you know it, it's gone. I have never retained a title so I want to see if this team's got it to carry on and be even more successful".

"I know where the idea to find the guilty one comes from in order to put the focus of attention on that issue and not on the fact that we had turned around the derby".

"I believe in myself, but I don't play", said Mourinho. "One team was dominant in Germany and one had [Lionel] Messi, but we are nothing without the team". For this Herrera article we had a quick chat with John Henderson, Premier League specialist for, to hear his opinion. "This club is absolutely fantastic in all terms". I'm sorry, it's much more important what these guys have done this season. 'We were deservedly punished, ' he said.
