United are targeting Leicester defender Harry Maguire this summer as they look to sell Chris Smalling.

Soon after United " s defeat on Sunday, the City website tweeted: "Our Time.

Manchester United (second place; 71 points) is just a point above Liverpool with two games in hand.

In any case, Guardiola clearly believes his side will need to wait a few days before sealing the deal - he has said he will be playing golf with his son on Sunday afternoon rather than watching United's game. Vincent Kompany did, with images showing the City captain celebrating at his in-laws' house where he was having dinner.

He added: "I had that feeling when I woke up this morning but I don't like to wait and see a team lose so it was a little bit of a different experience today".

City had moved within touching distance of the title with a 3-1 win at Tottenham on Saturday.

City's main quest in the final weeks of the season will be to break the records for the most points, wins and goals in a single PL season to hammer home their dominance.

At this point, it's all about finishing second or third, and a win here will get them a step closer.

"We were masters in complication, everything was complicated", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

According to The Mirror, the 30-year-old is expected to pursue a fresh challenge in the Premier League next term with the Baggies confined towards dropping into the Championship.

18 - Their run of 18 consecutive wins - from beating Bournemouth 2-1 on August 26 to a 1-0 victory at Newcastle United on December 27 - set a new Premier League record.

United's strong recent form sees them take on West Bromwich Albion on Sunday looking for an eighth consecutive domestic victory and has raised optimism among supporters over their prospects for next season.

Of course they could have wrapped up the title last weekend when they faced their rivals in the Manchester derby at the Etihad and at 2-0 up in the first half they really should have done so, to rub salt in the Red Devils' wounds.

The 2012 title win had the infamous last-gasp goal by Sergio Aguero.

Lukaku has netted 26 times in all competitions this season, with his latest goal against Swansea at Old Trafford bringing up his Premier League century.
