United suffer shock loss to West Brom, hand title to City

City originally had the chance to win the league against United last week but a win for the Red Devils only delayed the inevitable by eight days.

As for City, it has a month to finish a season with the most points, goals and wins in a single Premier League campaign.

"I knew that sooner or later they would be (champions) and if I was in their position I would be very upset if someone said they won the title because Manchester United lost against West Brom".

While City boss Pep Guardiola said he would be playing golf while the United match took place and a handful of players were reportedly out of the country, captain Kompany was at home watching the drama unfold with his family.

"Then the first time you lose one, you think you're never going to win another ever again", he told Sky Sports.

In the midst of winning four titles in five years, this was an increasingly sophisticated United side, reflecting Ferguson's desire to thrive in Europe as well on domestic soil.

West Brom had dropped 8 of the past nine matches and then last won on January 1-3.

Chris Brunt's corner to the far post was headed back towards his own goal by Nemanja Matic under pressure from Dawson, with Rodriguez stealing in to head in from close range in the 73rd minute. They lost only two matches because they were the best team.

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

José Mourinho's United was at home to West Bromwich Albion, rooted to the foot of the table, all but assured of relegation, and coming to the end of a season in which it has fired two managers, a chairman, a chief executive and a director of football.

"This one differs in that we were consistent the whole season and we were able to play at the level we're expected to perform at".

"We asked a lot of questions, but everyone worked hard and did their jobs".

"I'm proud for players and staff and way they have acquitted themselves today. You could see the difference in the attitude to players compared to last week", said the Portuguese coach.

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

Jay Rodriguez was the unlikely man to the seal the championship for City with his 74th-minute goal at Old Trafford.

They could yet beat three significant Premier League landmarks set by Chelsea - the highest points tally of 95 in 2004-2005, the most wins in a season at 30 in 2016-2017 and the most goals scored at 103 in 2009-2010.
