Ander Herrera Starts - Manchester United Team vs West Brom Confirmed

Daniel Sturridge could face United as West Brom vow to ‘keep fighting

Manchester City have won the English Premier League title after Manchester United lost 1-0 at home to last-place West Bromwich Albion.

City's brand of breathless possession football took the Premier League by storm - a fine rebuke for critics who questioned Guardiola after a first trophyless season in England.

City must have been quite disappointed to watch Chelsea and Leicester City win the last three Premier League titles, but they are finally back at the summit, drowning out painful memories of their midweek Champions League exit at the hands of Liverpool.

Reflecting on the latest round of Premier League matches, Richard Jolly selects his team of the week. I think with my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency. I have been lucky to win three but so many I have missed as well. "When we had the ball, we wanted to run, dribble and everything was complicated", he said.

On Saturday, City had convincingly beaten Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 and manager Pep Guardiola said he was going to play golf with his son rather than watch United play West Brom.

In sealing the league at this stage, City matched the record for the earliest title win - held by United since 2001.

"You win titles with consistency at every level, not just the performance level but the mental level and the day by day".


You could see the attitudes of some players, masters of complication.

"I saw lots of people [over] the moon because we won against City".

He is keen to focus on ensuring that last weekend's superb comeback against City does not curdle into complacency against West Brom. They were the right ones and the ones we believed in, I'm sure there are differences to how we play today compared to Bayern (Munich) and Barcelona, we survive and live by the strength of the team.

However, City are now 16 points clear of second-placed United, meaning a defeat for Jose Mourinho's men at Old Trafford against a West Brom side on the brink of relegation - kick-off is at 1500 GMT - would wrap up a third title in seven seasons.

From an attacking perspective, too, the Red Devils looked to be running out of ideas, even if Ben Foster needed to be at his best to deny a Lukaku header.

In addition, based on three points for a win, City's now tally is the most by any side after 33 games of an English top-flight campaign.
