After it failed to clinch the title at home last weekend, when it lost 3-2 to United, City bounced back on Saturday, spanking Tottenham 3-1 in a dominant display at the Wembley Stadium.
Kinda, but a full yes wouldn't have been vintage Mourinho.
"They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points and lost only two matches - that's why they were champions".
There were few positive performers for United against the Baggies but much of the post-match scrutiny was once again on Paul Pogba. We were losing lots of balls, so by losing lots of balls, with turns and flicks and tricks, the midfield players and central defenders are at risk of one touch, one late challenge and they are out. There was no fluidity. "In that semi-final, they are having one day extra to us to recover so I need also to think about that".
A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in flawless style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate.
"What is the criteria for a manager to choose a team?"
Sunday's defeat was made even more embarrassing as it handed the Premier League title to their rivals.
"In my experience, you don't win titles with inconsistency, you win titles, of course with quality, without quality, you have no chance, but you have to win titles with consistency at every level not just the performance level".
"We just keep fighting one game at a time", he added.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has insisted that he will not be doing "anything crazy" in the transfer market this summer to close the gap on Premier League champions Manchester City.
"We are not going to do anything insane", Mourinho told Sky Sports. "One of the things we have to improve is our consistency".
