EPL: Man City crowned champions as United crash

City could yet finish the season with the most points, goals and wins from a single Premier League campaign.

Manchester City were confirmed as Premier League champions without kicking a ball on Sunday as rock bottom West Brom stunned Manchester United with a 1-0 win at Old Trafford. Or United 0-0 West Brom in 2017.

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

Fans perhaps expected an easy three points for United, especially following their terrific 3-2 win over Manchester City last week, and given that before Sunday's Premier League encounter, the Baggies had won just once in their past 31 matches.

United, sensing the impact of the result, threw everything forward but West Brom displayed some new-found defensive fortitude and held on for a famous victory.

Alexis Sanchez wasn't the worst player in a red shirt and tried to spark his side into life.

"The mental level, the day by day, everything must be consistent until the last day so one of the things we have to improve is consistency".

There was a lack of tension in the atmosphere, with United supporters seemingly accepting there is little left for them to play for this season and West Brom fans apparently resigned to relegation.

He said, "The commitment, the desire, and I asked if Pogba can do that all the time, the way he played against City".

Darren Moore has already equalled Alan Pardew's total Premier League wins (1 in 18 games) as WBA manager in just his second game as boss (1).

"We were masters in complication, everything was complicated", said Mourinho.

"When we have the ball, we want to run with the ball, we want to dribble, and everything was complicated and probably in our best period where we were moving the ball better and the team was thinking faster and the team had more width was when they scored".

The Portuguese manager said that City deserved their title and he had offered them his congratulations after the derby win.

And Mourinho suggested last weekend's victory impacted heavily on the mentality of his players. "They won because they were the best team and lost only a few points".

This was a great example of what is a big issue for Manchester United. After Paul Pogba drew a comfortable save out of Foster with a tame strike from distance on seven minutes, the visitors created two good chances.
