Breaking: Manchester City win EPL as West Brom shock United

Posted Abril 16, 2018

Their fans, who had celebrated the comeback victory at the Etihad last week, booed Jose Mourinho's side off the field after they lost to a team who had not won since January.

"It's incredible the way we played and I am so glad to be here and be part of this club", he said on the club's website.

"It says it was not proven".

By the end they were singing: "Manchester City, we won you the league" and they join City as the only Premier League teams to win at Old Trafford since Mourinho took over as manager in 2016.

Manchester United gifted the Premier League title to fierce rival Manchester City in improbable fashion by losing 1-0 to last-place West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

On Saturday, City had convincingly beaten Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 and manager Pep Guardiola said he was going to play golf with his son rather than watch United play West Brom.


In contrast to Bravo, Ederson has been solid when called upon to make saves. I suppose my team-mates will roll their eyes a little bit but I kind of want to see what the reaction is now. Surely, it looked as if Foster could not reach the ball.

Records were starting to tumble as City cut down their rivals one by one and Arsenal were no match for the runaway leaders. Considering how much of a crisis point that has been in the last five years, Mourinho should be lauded for that if anything else.

"The process by the FA and communication from the FA was excellent, so I certainly have no problem with that".

The Frenchman has been one of the greatest enigmas of the season.

One of the emerging themes of this late season is the contrast between the consistent excellence required to win a league title and the ability to ride the emotional waves that often dictate success in knockout tournaments.

In the past five seasons no side has picked up more points at Old Trafford than West Brom, who have taken 10 over that period.


"Eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues". This is only natural, but it's nonetheless a shame.

Guardiola's men have sealed the title with five games remaining, equalling the record set by United in 1908 and 2001 - as well as Everton in 1985.

After their limp Champions League exit against Liverpool, a City collapse against Tottenham would have had the critics carping that Guardiola has no Plan B when things go wrong.

The Premier League title is the 24th trophy of the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss' managerial career.

The City manager's decision to forego the match looked justified considering West Brom's dreadful form, although Jake Livermore's early attempt was a warning shot that undercooked United failed to heed.
