English Premier League Report, Manchester United v West Brom, 15 April

English Premier League Report, Manchester United v West Brom, 15 April

It is City's fifth English top-flight title, their last Premier League triumph having come in the 2013-14 season.

City manager Pep Guardiola might have missed the moment that his first English title was sealed, however, after admitting on Saturday he had a round of golf booked with his son.

"We've won you the league, Manchester City, we've won you the league", sang West Brom's fans near the end of the game.

The Sunday afternoon of sport continues with their second of a double header in the Premier League as Man United host West Brom in what we expect to be a one sided encounter at Old Trafford.

A CASE OF alleged racial abuse against West Brom striker Jay Rodriguez has been dropped after an Independent Regulatory Commission ruled that the allegations could not be proven.

United beat West Brom 2-1 in the reverse fixture earlier this season with goals from forwards Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard and Foster said the league's basement club had to be wary of the threat posed by Jose Mourinho's side.

And while United's title dreams may have been over long before Sunday's game, yet again Mourinho has failed to build on the momentum of a big win against a rival.

Jordan Ayew secures Swansea City a vital point against Everton
Jordan Ayew then linked wonderfully with his brother Andre, but he could only fire straight at Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. Everton fullback Leighton Baines says they can be happy with their battling 1-1 draw at Swansea City .

Not for the first time this season at Old Trafford United started sluggishly and could have been a goal down after 12 minutes.

Despite losing in last weekend's Manchester Derby, City have wrapped up the League in joint-record time, matching United's 2000/2001 title win. United have won their last five league matches.

Manchester United have now won five Premier League games in a row.

United pushed numbers forward in the closing stages, but Foster never really looked in danger of being tested again as United succumbed to a defeat that was celebrated by the blue half of Manchester with even more vigour than usual.

That could see Juan Mata recalled while Marcus Rashford may get the nod ahead of Anthony Martial amid rumours both players are becoming unsettled due to a lack of regular starts.

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.
