"I think we share one thing maybe, the hunger and desire to never be satisfied", said Kompany.
"We couldn't play fast, we couldn't think fast, everything was complicated", he said. Chelsea won the League Cup too and were also strong in Europe, knocking Barcelona and Bayern Munich out before exiting to eventual winners Liverpool in the semi-finals thanks to Luis Garcia's "ghost goal". Arsenal has suffered an abysmal season as they find themselves placed at sixth spot with 54 points.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney formed a lethal attacking trio, with Ronaldo virtually unstoppable as he scored 31 league goals en route to winning the Ballon d'Or.
After all their efforts to stop City from clinching the league in their 3-2 derby win last week, United offered a clear reminder of why they have not been close contenders for the title this year, with an abject display lacking in creativity.
Mourinho feels that the Citizens fully deserve their crown and that it was always going to happen at some point.
"I know how to win, I believe in myself but I don't play", he added.
"I knew that sooner or later they would be (champions) and if I was in their position I would be very upset if someone said they won the title because Manchester United lost against West Brom". The United side of 2000-01 and Everton's 1984-85 team also won the title with five games to spare. They lost only two matches, that is why they were champions.
This defeat felt particularly painful as it came the weekend after the dramatic win against Manchester City, where United won 3-2 after being two goals down. "I have no reason not to - eight titles and three Premier Leagues and the last Premier League was not 20 years ago". I'm privileged to be part of such a great group, great players, good guys, good mentality, good atmosphere in the team, every single time I'm on the pitch I enjoy it.
City defender Benjamin Mendy, who missed most of the season due to injury, turned social media blue as he tweeted: "We are f*****g champions congratulations boys!"
Mourinho understands what is expected at the club and is confident that he has the ability to bring success in the future.
"But my teammates might roll their eyes when I say this".
