Manchester City seal Premier League title after Manchester United suffer shock defeat

Manchester is Blue!- City players react to Premier League title triumph

Manchester City have won the Premier League title after second-placed Manchester United were stunned 1-0 at home by West Bromwich Albion.

It is City's fifth English top-flight title, their last Premier League triumph having come in the 2013-14 season.

City boss Pep Guardiola had planned a day of golf with his son Marius on Sunday, so the Spaniard might have learned of his first Premier League while on the course.

United have no fresh injury concerns with Sergio Romero the only significant absentee as the goalkeeper continues to nurse a knee injury that he sustained on worldwide duty last month.

West Brom have looked certain to be relegated from the English top flight for much of the season but Darren Moore's side put in a spirited performance against the Red Devils at Old Trafford.

Just days after the Football Association announced a charge of racially abusing Brighton's Gaetan Bong had been found "not proven", the forward netted to secure a victory which sends shockwaves around the league.

While still nine points from safety, it was an unbelievable end to a match that had started with Livermore showing composure that belied his role as a midfield enforcer as he cut away from Victor Lindelof to be denied by David De Gea.


Romelu Lukaku has admitted that West Bromwich Albion's current plight is "painful" for him but the Manchester United man hopes that his former club can bounce back.

Lukaku cut back for Herrera and Dawson caught the midfielder, yet referee Paul Tierney did not award the spot-kick.

West Brom on the other hand head to Old Trafford knowing it's only a matter of time before their relegation to the Championship is confirmed after a disastrous campaign. He is expected to start out on the right-side ahead of Juan Mata.

But few would have predicted it coming against De Gea.

United midfielder Nemanja Matic had headed a corner across his own goal area and Rodriguez reacted quickly to nod home the victor.

James McLean fired across face of goal and United failed to muster a leveller.
