​Mata admits Man Utd poor in West Brom defeat

Manchester United's Juan Mata has admitted his side where poor in their 1-0 home loss to bottom of the table West Brom which handed neighbours City the Premier League title.

"I know that you don't want to read anything after a defeat like this one, that any comments made after the game sound like hollow words," Mata told the club's website.

"I'm not trying to explain anything here, or to make an excuse. We played a bad game this Sunday. There's not much to add. There's nothing to detract from West Bromwich, but we didn't live up to our expectations."
