"I have won titles, I would not be happy if someone say won title if someone lose a match", Mourinho said. "They don't understand anything", he said.
He added: "You can win the Champions League in seven games, the league is 10 months". At Old Trafford, the players were equally impressive with just one-third of the possession, and the late Jay Rodriguez goal has ensured that they are still mathematically in the running to save their Premier League status.
After the break City withstood a period of sustained pressure from Spurs, before Sterling hammered in the rebound from Jesus' shot to secure all three points in the 72nd minute.
West Brom became a team who was a constant thorn in the side of United all game long. "It was the only way they could score a goal which is from a corner or a free-kick".
"In general open play we had a couple of chances", he said. Jose said we didn't create much in open play because they dominated the ball a lot, you know when you come to Manchester United your work off the ball has to be very good.
"In general, the performance was again outstanding - and that's the level we have had all season".
The Spain global told MUTV in the wake of a disappointing home reversal against West Brom which gifted the Premier League crown to City: "Second position was not done before the game". We gave them the opportunity to win. You have to be consistent at every level, not just the performance level. "And then to get second in the league which is not the ideal position, but it's the position we want to finish now".
"We struggled to start in the game".
And it was achieved by playing a brand of football that has had the purists purring all season, with City racking up 93 goals so far and on course to top the 100-point barrier.
