That the United side let it affect their desire to beat West Brom at home, a side who have won just four games all season now, is shocking.

Jay Rodriguez's late goal handed Manchester City the Premier League title on Super Sunday, in what was a poor performance from Jose Mourinho's side against the bottom club.

Arsenal had six players in their own half to cover three opposition men in the build-up to Matt Ritchie's winning strike, leaving former Manchester United skipper Vidic with little doubt as to where the Londoners need to improve ahead of next season. "There are six players against three and there is no communication about who is going to go and attack the ball, who is going to cover", he told Sky Sports. It was too slow, which was disappointing.

Vidic won five league titles during his time as a Manchester United player, as well as the Champions League in 2008, and the Serb emphasised how important it is to generate a winning mentality within the camp.

"That is my worry, I'd like to see United playing faster, quicker with the ball". The players didn't perform the way they wanted. "For a team who is in the top seven who concede that many goals, I think they are doing well to be in that position".

Manchester United will now have to dust themselves down as they prepare for their FA Cup semi-final clash against Tottenham Hotspur next weekend.

'It seems like he (Jose) is saying there is a problem with mentality in the players.

'You play for Man United, it's not acceptable to draw or lose, always you have a high expectancy.

United went into the game knowing they had to avoid defeat to delay Manchester City's inevitable Premier League title win.

"It is kind of a weird one because you want to put all our focus on the Europa League and it was great to see Joe Willock today and Reiss Nelson the other week - you want to see youngsters - but at the minute, you can't really play on "we can rotate and have it easy in the league" while thinking about the Europa League".
