Manchester City take title as West Brom stun United at Old Trafford

Bulgaria Manchester City are the New Premier League Champions

Guardiola might not have seen Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute winning goal at Old Trafford because he was playing golf with his son instead of watching the match.

United delayed City's coronation as league champions when they came from two-goal down to win 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

Manchester City, who had bounced back after a week of dismal performances trounced Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 on Saturday.

Even if United had won, they would have been 13 points behind with five games to play and a City win at home to Swansea would have sealed the title.

With 87 points from 33 matches, City win their first Premier League title since 2013-14 under Manuel Pellegrini and their third since being bought by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008.

"The easy thing would have been to out against Sevilla and then collapse in the Premier League, in the sense that motivation goes down and the quality goes down".

"Manchester City, we won it for you" chanted West Brom fans at full-time as United supporters began jeering in frustration at their side gift-wrapping the title for City.

And while they probably thought they would have to wait one more week, that's not the case. Everything was complicated, players they didn't want to play simple.


"In the end, if we analyse the game, they fully deserve the victory", he said.

"I don't know what their problem has been this season", Lukaku added.

"We still need to improve to reach the last level which is the most hard thing".

They been a class above during this campaign, and have won the title with a massive 16-point lead over second placed United.

Apart from stand-out displays at Arsenal and City Pogba has struggled to justify his mega-price tag this season and was stunned when Mourinho chose 21-year-old Acadamy product Scott McTominay ahead of him in some games.

"I won too much to be happy with one big victory".

Right-back Kyle Walker, who joined Man City last summer, said: "We did it!"

Not only that, he did it with five games remaining, equalling the English top-flight record of United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85).
