Manchester United Play West Bromwich Albion in a Premier League game at Old Trafford April 2018
If there was a saving grace to come out of this catastrophic performance, it was that last week we avoided handing City the title on their own patch, but have now embarrassingly contrived to present them with their third Premiership in six years the next time out.
This really was the pits.
West Bromwich Albion will play Championship football next season and haven't won since Adam was a lad!
Yet they turned up today with a calm and composed attitude and were worthy winners against a United side who thought they had only to turn up to claim all three points.
Flat, uninspired and unable to string a couple of passes together, the visitors must have been as shocked as Mourinho at this lame-duck performance, arguably one of the worst this campaign.
A prince one week, a complete clown the next - that's what you get from Paul Pogba.The Frenchman even managed to get himself booked for a needless handball before being hauled off, not before time.
Clearly, Jose was thinking two matches ahead with the cup, semi-final looming, packing his midfield with the strength and experience of Mata,
Matic and Herrera, as well as Pogba.
For all four to hugely under-perform at one time will have deeply troubled the manager who may ditch this plan against a Spurs side with class oozing from their central area.
Although Albion had been thwarted by the alert David de Gea early on, the keeper was eventually beaten later by a Rodriguez stooping header from a corner badly defended by Matic.
Romelu Lukaku drew another blank, his best effort a header expertly kept out by Ben Foster.
There were few other openings created by this lack-lustre display and a jubilant Albion were able to celebrate a rare victory that meant so much to another side just across the city."
