Man City wins Premier League after United loses to West Brom

Man City wins Premier League after United loses to West Brom

City, who beat Tottenham 3-1 on Saturday, were all set to be crowned champions if United lost at Old Trafford against West Brom.

More importantly, though, it means Pep Guardiola's City team can not now be caught at the top of the table, thus handing the Catalan coach his first Premier League crown in just his second year in English football.

Last week City exited the Champions League after losing their first and second leg quarterfinal ties to Liverpool, but in the Premier League, Guardiola's team has looked a class apart, scoring 93 goals in 33 games.

Yet they still clinch the trophy with five games to spare - a joint-Premier League record - after dominating the division for most of the campaign, and Guardiola admitted last week it would feel like "one of the best" of his career.

But Guardiola said instead of watching the match he will be playing golf.

"I don't know if I was the first or second or third but I congratulated them face to face when I had the chance", Mourinho said.

West Brom remain nine points adrift of safety with just four games remaining and seem unlikely to stave off relegation, but caretaker boss Darren Moore was pleased with their efforts.

I won eight titles and I'm not in the moon because I won against Manchester City a match that is only three points.

If the reverse fixture is anything to go by though, they might run their hosts close on Sunday, with Manchester United only enjoying a narrow 2-1 win in December.

Mourinho added: "I think Man City wins the title (this season)". Both full-backs will need to be more proactive in their attacking play down the wings. West Brom are a good team and they don't deserve to be that low and as they stuck into the game you realised that something could happen.

Former England worldwide Gary Lineker, who now work as a television presenter, tweeted: "Congratulations to @ManCity on winning the Premier League title".

But a United defeat against Bournemouth in midweek or a City win over Swansea City next Sunday would wrap up the silverware.

"We've won the league for you, Man City, Man City", West Brom's fans chanted after the final whistle. As a result, we at the Hard Tackle predict a 2-0 win for the home team at Old Trafford this Sunday.
