EPL: Mourinho reacts to Man City winning title, blasts Man United players

EPL: Mourinho reacts to Man City winning title, blasts Man United players

Over £12m was traded on the 2017/18 Premier League Winner market, but with City effectively running away with the title - eventually winning it with five games remaining - no team other then the winners traded at odds-on, or even notably shorter than their pre-season odds.

Their squad is crammed full of wonderfully potent performers such as Juan Mata, Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, yet the Premier League table, which shows them 16 points behind City, does not lie.

"I think we share one thing maybe, the hunger and desire to never be satisfied", said Kompany.

The pinnacle of Arsene Wenger's Arsenal reign remains the "Invincibles" - only the second team to go through an English top-flight season without losing a single game after Preston's unbeaten feat in 1889.

But, just a week after spoiling City's title party by beating their local rivals 3-2 at the Etihad, the way United abjectly gifted the title to their neighbours will sting. The previous record was held by Chelsea (82 points) in both 2004-05 and 2005-06.

Realistically it was always a matter of when and not if City would become English champions for a fifth time following a dominant season from the blue half of Manchester.

Tottenham came out aggressively in the second half in search of the equalizer but instead Sterling gave the visitors an insurance goal in the 72nd minute when he pounced on a ball in the area after Lloris had stopped a shot by Gabriel Jesus.

Djokovic is back working with old coach Marian Vajda after parting ways with Andre Agassi and Radek Stepanek . The world No 4, who has two Masters 1000 titles to his name, has been handed a bye for the first round.

No side in Ferguson's 27-year reign better represented the Scot's fiercely competitive spirit than this buccaneering group, who mixed a commitment to attack with a mean streak that made them impossible to rattle if the game turned ugly. "Real Madrid, years ago, lost six games in a row and didn't win the league".

After last week's surprising defeat at home to crosstown rival Manchester United and two losses this month to Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-finals, the Citizens were eager to get back on track, reports Efe.

Arsene Wenger's side took an early lead through Alexandre Lacazette, but Ayoze Perez equalised before Ritchie bagged the second half victor.

A far more frenetic game occurs in the rematch between 2007/08 United and 2017/18 City.

Given that most judges rate City the best team the Premier League has ever seen, logic suggests the bookies are right.

Ronaldo puts the hosts ahead 20 minutes in, before De Bruyne lobs Edwin van der Sar from forty yards before half-time. It was always a matter of when rather than if City would be champions after they led the way for most of the season.

With that in mind, who would win this hypothetical division?
