Manchester City Crowned English Premier League Football Champions

Furious Jose Mourinho walks off after his team's defeat to West Brom handed the Premier League title to Man City

Pep Guardiola's side put themselves on the brink of title glory with Saturday's 3-1 victory at Tottenham and Manchester United's failure to take points off West Brom on Sunday left City beyond mathematical reach.

The Blues secured the title after Manchester United fell to a 1-0 defeat against West Brom.

Some of Man City's players got together in a local pub after they had officially won the title, where a video has emerged capturing Kompany delivering a quite fantastic speech.

The City manager's decision to forego the match looked justified considering West Brom's terrible form, although Jake Livermore's early attempt was a warning shot that undercooked United failed to heed. I had that feeling when I woke up.

It was a tribute to Ferguson's team-building genius that, just two seasons after the departure of the talismanic Eric Cantona, United were once again at the summit - this time thanks to legendary "Class of '92" graduates Giggs, David Beckham, Paul Scholes and the Neville brothers.

While City's quest for the quadruple remained elusive in the end, they did manage to win the Carabao Cup earlier as well to make it a double and a season to remember for all their fans.

"I trust in my work, that is for sure - I have no reason not to trust", he said.

He was on the 17th green at Cheshire's Mottram Hall club when someone screeched to a halt and jumped out of a vehicle to reveal that the only challengers, Aston Villa, had lost to Oldham and United had won the title at last.


"It's incredible the way we played and I am so glad to be here and be part of this club", he said on the club's website.

"Today is a sense of achievement because we've won the title in a way for the first time, I'd like to have won all other titles, so I'm extremely proud about this, and extremely aware of how fast these moments can go".

"This one differs in that we were consistent the whole season and we were able to play at the level we're expected to perform at".

Beaten just once while winning 29 of their 38 games, Chelsea finished 12 points clear to claim their first top-flight title in 50 years, and only the second in the club's history.

Manchester City may have only conceded one goal fewer than their fierce rivals from across town, but on the underlying numbers they have been vastly superior.

Chris Brunt's corner to the far post was headed back towards his own goal by Nemanja Matic under pressure from Dawson, with Rodriguez stealing in to head in from close range in the 73rd minute. Now the 26-year-old Belgian is the best midfielder in the Premier League.

"I've seen many teams win it where they've been champions all season and it's a first for me".

West Brom now move to within nine points of safety, although they must face Liverpool, Tottenham and fellow relegation battlers Crystal Palace in their final four matches of the campaign. "I want to bring a family atmosphere to the club".
