EPL: Man City crowned champions as United crash

Share

Manchester United handed the Premier League title to Manchester City on Sunday after a woeful performance in a surprise 1-0 defeat at home by bottom club West Bromwich Albion. The victory was only the Baggies' fourth of the campaign, and the west Midlands side still have the slender opportunity of beating the drop.

Prior to the match, Manchester United knew they only needed not to lose to Baggies to prolong Manchester City's chase for the title. Both Pogba and Sanchez appeared to occupy a similar position on the left side of the pitch, and this appeared to hamper the former, who often requires space to thrive.

The Baggies are now nine points adrift of safety, with just four games remaining.

"I know them", he said.

They won it in the last remaining seconds in 2012, and in the final match in 2014. United are banned from doing anything but losing at Stamford Bridge under the unwritten law which also forbids United to do anything other than get hammered when they play Tottenham away, one the Reds have faithfully abided by in recent seasons, including this January.

"Eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues".

With the triumph, City have become a three-time Premier League winners - a feat they are achieving in seven seasons. Well, they did beat Chelsea Liverpool and Manchester City in the previous five games and were obviously brimming with confidence. "One more touch to control the ball, one more flick, one more trick".

United had beaten City in a stunning comeback during the derby, denying them the title, but denied that win was the most important win of the season.

The result sparked celebrations among the Light Blue half of Manchester but Mourinho said City's title deserved to be recognised for its true value.

"With my experience you don't titles with inconsistency. Everything was complicated. Players they didn't want to or couldn't play simple", Mourinho told SkyTV afterwards.

West Brom had Ben Foster to thank for two fine saves from Romelu Lukaku either side of half-time before Jay Rodriguez scored the victor 18 minutes from time.

The irony that this is exactly how Manchester City play will not be lost on anyone.

"They won because they were the best team, they lost only a few points".

City are worthy champions, having been head and shoulders above their neighbours as well as the rest of the league this season.
