Manchester City win English Premier League

Manchester City win English Premier League

The lose for United means that City team can not be displace from the top of the table, thereby given Pep Guardiola his first Premier League title in his second years as that Manager of Manchester United team.

City's 3-1 win at Wembley against Tottenham on Saturday meant Manchester United had to avoid defeat at home to West Brom to keep their slim hopes alive.

Despite losing in last weekend's Manchester Derby, City have wrapped up the League in joint-record time, matching United's 2000/2001 title win.

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

In the first half, United's players created just two chances to West Brom's four which prompted Mourinho to bring Lingard on for Ander Herrera and half-time and the Red Devils immediately looked more threatening on the attack - albeit with no reward.

"We didn't want or played simple, everything was slow, one more flick, trick, turn".

Albion secured the win thanks to a Jay Rodriguez header from Chris Brunt's corner as the home side failed to clear their lines.




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 De Gea.

West Brom caretaker coach Darren Moore praised his staff and players after they produced one of the upsets of the Premier League season, beating Man Utd 2-1 at Old Trafford.

It was a familiar problem for Guardiola, who had watched United come from two goals down to beat City and deny them the title last weekend. I was unfortunate enough to play against that quality United side that dominated in the '90s, but this side would have beaten them - that's how good they are.

"I don't think we deserve to lose but we gave them the opportunity to win the match by [them] being solid in defence and smelling a chance in a set play which they did".

Paul Pogba, the two goal hero last week, was substituted in the 58th minute after a poor display in which he also picked up a yellow card. It is hard to speak about Manchester City for me, but what Pep Guardiola has done is incredible; to win the title with the football he plays is great.

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