Carrick reveals what he said to inspire Pogba's Manchester derby performance

Based on three points for a win, Manchester City's current points tally of 87 is the most by any side in English top-flight league history after 33 games of a season.

They have equalled the efforts of Manchester United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85) who all won the top-flight title with five games to spare.

However, they put up a woeful performance at home to the Premier League's "basement boys" and Jay Rodriguez's 73rd minute strike condemned them to a shock 1-0 defeat that gifted City the title.

The Baggies victory at Old Trafford was a rare bright moment during what has been a torrid campaign thus far, and was just their fourth win all season long. Eight titles. Three Premier League.

When the two teams last met in December, City beat their local rivals 2-1 at Old Trafford.

Manchester United looked much stronger during the second half, but they ultimately could not get a goal past Foster. The Chilean midfielder assisted on two of United's goals, giving him three assists and a goal in his last two games.

At the start of the season, they were dominating teams and being tipped to challenge City for the crown.

"The quality, the experience of numerous players, the squad and the stability of the past years, it is a surprise for me that they find themselves in this position", he said.

"We deserve to be punished, but the defeat was too heavy".

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

Regardless of the score, nobody was really anxious about Manchester City losing the title at this point.

"So, if you ask me if I'm expecting Paul now to be man of the match every week? No. One of the things we have to improve is consistency".

"Everything was complicated, we couldn't play fast or think fast, everything was complicated, one more touch to control, one more turn, one more flick, one more trick and we always gave them the opportunity to be solid".
