Man City confirmed as champions after Baggies shock United

The Red Devils delayed City winning the title last week after coming from behind to win 3-2 in the Manchester derby, and with Pep Guardiola's side beating Tottenham on Saturday evening, all they need is for United to lose to the Baggies for them to become Premier League champions today.

Pep Guardiola revealed that he had no plans to watch United's clash with West Brom and would instead be on the golf course on Sunday afternoon.

Ahmed Hegazi played the full 90 minutes, as West Bromwich Albion defeated Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford Stadium in the 34th fixture of the English Premier League. United have won their last five league matches.

Ultimately, Rodriguez was the hero for West Brom - and City.

Rodriguez was charged by the Football Association in February following allegations that he used abusive or insulting language towards Brighton & Hove Albion's Cameroon defender Gaetan Bong in a Premier League match the previous month.

Guardiola failed last season but in his second term he has added the correct players to his squad, the signing of Kyle Walker has been a huge plus, and he has also got huge amounts out of Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling, amongst many others.

While still nine points from safety, it was an incredible end to a match that had started with Livermore showing composure that belied his role as a midfield enforcer as he cut away from Victor Lindelof to be denied by David De Gea.

Romelu Lukaku insists that West Bromwich Albion's current plight is "painful" for him but the Manchester United man hopes that his former club can bounce back.

There were a few United half-chances before half-time, while a Dawson header back across goal from a corner was begging to be turned in by West Brom.

Foster impressively denied Lukaku when meeting a clipped Matic cross and Lingard had an attempted deflected wide as a goal looked inevitable.

United had to at least draw to keep the title race mathematically alive but were stunned at Old Trafford when Jay Rodriguez headed home after the break.
