Man Utd boss Mourinho: It's Man City's title; we fight for second

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has crowned Manchester City the Premier League champions.

United's defeat to Tottenham in midweek has left them 15 points behind their neighbours with only 13 games to play.

Mourinho said: “They are doing so, so well that they are not letting the others come close to them, it is as simple as that.

"With the number of points we have and improvement in relation to last season, the distance would be a distance that leaves the fight (for the title) open.

"The fight is open only for second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth but it is practically closed for the first.

"I cannot say we, Tottenham or Chelsea is doing bad because the points we have are very reasonable but City started strong and kept going strong and managed to win matches they didn't deserve - I give them credit when I say that - with that last push of the last minute goal, the winning goal in added time, they managed to do that in a way where that's the distance.

"If you tell me all six want to be champion and only one will be and the other five fail, I think is too pragmatic a way to look at it because you can still do positive work and not win the title."
