Jose Mourinho accuses his Manchester United players of over overcomplicating things in their 1-0 home defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has labelled his side "masters in complication" following Sunday's surprise home defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

A week on from beating pacesetters Manchester City 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium, United suffered a 1-0 loss to basement side West Brom at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils were poor throughout and failed to even claim a point in the end, as Jay Rodriguez helped the ball over the line to inflict a first league defeat on the hosts in more than two months.

Mourinho refused to hold back after the match, telling Sky Sports News: "We were masters in complication. Everything was complicated. Players didn't want to or didn't play simple. Everything was slow. Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn.

"I don't think we deserved to lose, but we gave them the opportunity to win the match by being solid in defence and sniffing a chance in attack."

Defeat for United handed the Premier League title to rivals Manchester City - their third in seven seasons.
