CONFIRMED: Man Utd Team To Play West Brom

CONFIRMED: Man Utd Team To Play West Brom

Manchester City won the Premier League title without even playing on Sunday when nearest challenger Manchester United surprisingly lost 1-0 at home to last-place West Bromwich Albion.

Jay Rodriguez's 73rd minute victor against Manchester United confirmed league leaders Manchester City as the champions of England on Sunday.

But that only delayed the party by one week.

Pep Guardiola has won the top-flight league title in seven of his nine seasons as a manager, with the only exceptions being 2011-12 at Barcelona and 2016-17 at Manchester City. Fascinating interviews with Gary Lineker, Russell Brand, Lily Allen, Eric Cantona, Alastair Campbell, Jon Ronson, Nick Clegg and more.

The notion of anything resembling an actual "race" for the Premier League title has always been abandoned due to City's relentless form, but things could have been different back in December.

United have 71 also with five to play. Chris Smalling had an attempt as the clock wound down and the full-time whistle saw City crowned champions.

Instead of City hoping to clinch the title at home to Swansea next weekend, that game at Etihad Stadium will now be a party and a celebration of one of the Premier League's finest teams which could yet break a slew of records by the end of the season. It was a vital win for City, who avoided relegation by four points, and a reminder that, just because a team is struggling, it doesn't mean they can't beat anyone.

Mourinho, though, was quick to dampen talk that United had handed the title to City, insisting it is their dominance over the season that secured their coronation. They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points.

He also conceded it was sweet to triumph in a country where some critics claimed his purist principles couldn't flourish.

A United victory on Sunday afternoon would keep City's champagne on ice for a few more days at least.

It was always a matter of when rather than if City would be champions after they led the way for most of the season.

Manchester City recently crashed out from the Champions League following 5-1 aggregate defeat against Liverpool, but this win will heal every wound of the defeat.

They gave a superb response with a swaggering win at fourth placed Tottenham.

"We came up against a very good Manchester United side today, they asked questions all game but my team to a man did their jobs today".
