Manchester City win Premier League title as rivals United lose

Manchester City win Premier League title as rivals United lose

Jay Rodriguez put West Brom ahead in the 73rd minute from a corner kick to give the visitors 24 points from 34 matches.

Having prevented arch-rivals Manchester City from toasting a title triumph on derby day at the Etihad Stadium, the Red Devils surrendered the crown a week later in a shock 1-0 defeat to West Brom.

City had moved within touching distance of the title with a 3-1 win at Tottenham on Saturday.

It wasn't exactly the way Manchester City envisioned it happening but thanks to an unlikely ally, they have won the 2017-18 Premier League title.

"You need consistency at every level".

Jose Mourinho, Manager of Manchester United reacts during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Brighton and Hove Albion at Old Trafford on November 25, 2017 in Manchester, England.

He added: "You can win the Champions League in seven games, the league is 10 months".

"Hopefully we can celebrate with our fans against Swansea (next weekend) and be champions because they deserve it".

The club also fired chairman John Williams and chief executive Martin Goodman in February following the team's poor performances this season. "I knew that sooner or later that would be and if I was in that position I would be very upset if someone said they won the title because Manchester United lost", he said. The Baggies can acquire a maximum of 36 points with four games left in the campaign, but their fixture list is the toughest of the lot with matches against Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Crystal Palace and Newcastle United - all of whom are in good vein of form.

United have scored a full 30 goals fewer than City this season and Mourinho has not managed to get his side to click, despite being able to bring on further talent such as Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.
