Manchester City may have been crowned Premier League champions with five games to spare, but Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has not lost faith in his managerial abilities. 

​Manchester United's shock defeat to West Brom at Old Trafford, gifted their crosstown rivals the title.However, Mourinho is confident that under his guidance, the team will respond appropriately next season. 

"I trust in my work, that's for sure," said Mourinho, as quoted by Sky Sports.

"I have no reason not to trust - eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues. The last Premier League was not 20 years ago, it was three years ago. I know how to win."

Mourinho congratulated the newly crowned Premier League champions, claiming that City "deserve" the title after losing just two games this season. Confident in his own ability, Mourinho wanted his side to be as consistent as Manchester City, next season. 

"I believe in myself, but I don't play," added Mourinho. 

"With my experience, you don't win titles with inconsistency. You win titles with quality of course, without that you have no chance, but you win titles with consistency."

"Consistency at every level, not just the performance level, but the mental, the day by day, everything must be consistent until the last day. So one of the things we must improve is consistency."

The Red Devils have endured a torrid campaign by their lofty standards. They crashed out of the Champions League in the round-of-16 and also missed out on the League Cup. They are fighting tooth and nail to bag the FA Cup but must put up a great show to get the better of Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-final.
