Manchester City are champions after United lose to West Brom

However, West Brom put in a gutsy performance to defeat the league's second-placed side on Sunday, Rodriguez scoring a second-half victor at Old Trafford to hand the title to Manchester City.

A week after preventing its neighbours from clinching the title in front of their own fans by rallying from 2-0 down to win 3-2, United delivered a similarly unlikely result as managerless West Brom pulled off one of the shocks of the season.

Even when Jay Rodriguez headed in the decisive goal, in the 73rd minute, it was alarming to see the lack of fight from a team, lest it be forgotten, that have won this league 20 times.

Guardiola said on Saturday that he would play golf, rather than watch the United game.

How Manchester United Improve Now?

Realistically it was always a matter of when and not if City would become English champions for a fifth time following a dominant season from the blue half of Manchester.

"Today's game, we've got a vital three points for us and it means so much for the football club as it does all the players".

"Manchester City, we won it for you" chanted the West Brom fans at the end of a match greeted by jeers by the home faithful.

West Brom: Foster, Nyom, Dawson, Hegazi, Gibbs, Phillips (Krychowiak 77), Livermore, Brunt (Yacob 90), McClean, Rodriguez, Rondon (Sturridge 85).

United's insipid half was then summed up when Paul Pogba received a yellow card for inexplicably trying to convert a deep cross with his hand.

Romelu Lukaku was twice denied by smart saves from Ben Foster, while Jesse Lingard also came close after his introduction from the bench at half-time.

Pogba was taken off two minutes before the hour mark.

Following the win, West Brom occupy the last league spot with 24 points and are set to face Mohamed Salah's Liverpool on the 21st of April.

'City were the best team, sooner or later they would get the points, so no dramas when the best team wins the league'.

"Second position was not done before the game", Mata told United's website.

It's the third Premier League success for the club after the titles won in 2012 under Roberto Mancini and 2014 under Manuel Pellegrini, with captain Vincent Kompany, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure involved in all of them. "Very happy to call us champions this year!"

"Manchester City won the title because they have more points than anybody else".
