Manchester City clinches Premier League title after West Brom stuns United

But Jose Mourinho's men still ended up handing the trophy to City with a lacklustre display against bottom of the table Albion, who had won only three times in the league this season before this weekend.

Baggies forward Jay Rodriguez's close-ranger header in the 73rd minute was the only goal on the night as the Red Devils struggled to click in attack, with star man Paul Pogba putting in yet another underwhelmin performance.

"Manchester City, we won it for you", chanted the West Brom fans at the end of a match greeted by jeers by United supporters. At last, Manchester City's players can enjoy a serene Premier League title triumph.

"We deserve to be punished, but the defeat was too heavy".

A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in ideal style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate.

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are on course for one of the most dominant league seasons ever after wrapping up the title already.

The defeat at Old Trafford helped the Etihad outfit mathematically win the Premier League.

"Eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues".

Guardiola, speaking after Saturday's 3-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley, declared his own satisfaction at the superb efforts of his squad this term.

Can United be more competitive next season?

This is how Manchester #United lose the #Premier League title race, not with a fight but with a whimper.

They have scored 93 goals and lost only twice all season. But what can not be argued against are the records that City have smashed on their way to the title this season.

"That doesn't make me feel super happy and in my opinion affected for sure some of the people that was too happy".

An 18-match winning run from late August to late December laid the platform for the runaway title victory, and it was only a matter of when it would be clinched.

"The mental level, the day by day, everything must be consistent until the last day so one of the things we have to improve is consistency", he said. The loss enable them to be crowned champions as Sports Bonus from 12bet predicted early this season.

But a first Premier League title, to go with the three La Liga titles he won as manager of Barcelona and the three Bundesliga titles he delivered for Bayern Munich, will be particularly satisfying.
