"I saw lots of people in the moon because we won against Manchester City".

United's first loss at home in the league since December handed the title to rivals Manchester City with five games to spare. City had previously won an FA Cup, two league Cups, FA Community Shield, and two Premier League titles since the take-over of the influential and affluent United Arab Group in 2008.

With the triumph, City have become a three-time Premier League winners - a feat they are achieving in seven seasons.

The Frenchman was substituted before the hour mark at Old Trafford - a decision explained by Jose Mourinho - with United conceding the victor 15 minutes later.

Goalkeeper Ederson Moraes was watching former club Benfica play Porto in the Portuguese league.

However, United came out with a renewed vigour in the second half, and found themselves quickly on terms thanks to two quick fire goals from the £89 million midfielder.

Mourinho had been similarly dismissive when asked about Rashford, bouncing back a statistic about the young forward's lack of starts by saying he has more appearances than anyone else since he arrived at United.

West Brom had lost eight of their previous nine games and last won on January 13.

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

Jay Rodriguez's second-half victor meant City securing the league title with five games to spare.

"With my experience you don't titles with inconsistency".

Mourinho remains understandably cautious about talking up next season and, while expecting City to invest heavily this summer, he insists United will not spend recklessly to try to compete.

"You see the difference of attitude of some players today compared with other weeks; relax, too stylish, one more touch, one more turn, one more flick".

Henry, who implored him to emulate his City performance on a more consistent basis, said that such displays prove he can not.
