Predicted Red Devils XI for Premier League clash v West Brom

Predicted Red Devils XI for Premier League clash v West Brom

However, on Sunday, United looked lazy and uninspired and one mistake during the match cost them a humiliating defeat against the bottom-placed West Brom.

Postgame, Manchester City had a subtle dig at their red rivals by claiming "Our time".

After spending time on the bench in March, Pogba scored twice in the second half to help United rally to a 3-2 win and deny City the title for the time being.

That moment came in the 73rd minute when Jay Rodriguez finished off a wayward header by United's Nemanja Matic on the corner. Vincent Kompany did, with images showing the City captain celebrating at his in-laws' house where he was having dinner.

"During the week I was trying to fight that because I was feeling it. The amount of goals, chances and points, to do that in the Premier League, with the contenders we have, is because the players are so good".

Pep Guardiola will be delighted to have won two trophies this season, but will be determined to go one step further and win the Champions League next season - something he has not done since leaving Barcelona in 2012. "Premier League Champions 17/18", City tweeted soon after the final whistle when the fifth English top-flight title of its history was assured.

"As much as this has been a record breaking season, this one's for you, the fans, this is why we do it!" said the skipper. It is not ours yet and we need to be very clear about that.

Few - including Guardiola - expected it to happen on Sunday.

"Probably because I won eight championships I was not on the moon with the victory against them because that doesn't make me feel super-happy".

"With my experience you don't titles with inconsistency. But the Premier League is one of the nicest and most important".

Watching West Bromwich Albion struggle in the Premier League has pained Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku and the Belgian hopes his former club will learn from the mistakes of a dismal campaign and improve next season.

At the start of the season, they were dominating teams and being tipped to challenge City for the crown.

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