Mata throws fresh challenge at Man United after title loss

Pep Guardiola's side are once again on the brink of securing the title after an impressive performance in beating Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 at Wembley on Saturday.

At last, Manchester City's players can enjoy a serene Premier League title triumph.

"I trust in my work, that is for sure".

"Normally, we are going to have more of the ball and, normally, it's when we need somebody from the back to add extra technical quality in the middle of the back [four]".

Manchester City are now 16 points ahead of 2nd placed side Manchester United - the Premier League record points gap between 1st and 2nd place at the end of a season is now 18 points by Manchester United in 1999-00.

Mourinho doesn't handle talks himself and leaves it up to the United hierarchy though he does have a say in who's sold and who's kept.

Relegation to the Championship is still nearly a certainty, with nine points separating them from 17th placed Swansea City, but the mood within the West Brom camp would have at least been lifted after yesterday's win.

Sterling has 22 goals this season - double his best previous tally - but came under fire after missing two good chances against United. "Maybe also City will invest massively and they don't let the others close the gap to them, I don't know", said Mourinho. "You are playing good teams, not teams from lower leagues".

The defeat put United's second spot position in danger, as their advantage over third-placed Liverpool was reduced to just one point. "As I was saying, eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues and the last Premier League was not 20 years ago, was three years ago", Mourinho was quoted as saying by Reuters.

"Not the defeat, I think it's too heavy, but not to win this match".

City have won the title with five games remaining, equalling the record set by United in the 2000-01 campaign.

"It was not done even if we won", he said. "Premier League Champions 17/18", City tweeted soon after the final whistle, when the fifth English top-flight title of its history was assured. They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points.

He said: "We've got faith in one another, the players, the staff. Things have gone a bit by the wayside this year".
