Manchester City's title triumph - 5 defining matches this season

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany

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.

United simply had to avoid defeat to keep the title race mathematically alive, but a late header from Jay Rodriguez gave West Brom a hugely surprising three points and finally gave their fans something to cheer this season.

As for City, however, this is the last trophy Pep's side could've won.

Based on three points for a win, Manchester City's current points tally of 87 is the most by any side in English top-flight league history after 33 games of a season.

Manchester United stars got their revenge on Manchester City after last weekend's dramatic derby win by cranking up the volume in their dressing-room following the match.

And Mourinho accused his players of taking their eye off the ball after the City game.

Liverpool may be flying now, but their early-season problems killed their challenge before it even began, while Arsenal and Chelsea have been out of the reckoning since the autumn. Everything was slow. Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn.

France coach Didier Deschamps had already come to a similar conclusion, saying at the end of March that he did not believe the former Juventus player was happy at Old Trafford.

And that decision backfired as United players supposedly said: "Booked tables have you?"

"I trust in my work".

After spending time on the bench in March, Pogba scored twice in the second half to help United rally to a 3-2 win and deny City the title for the time being.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinhosaid: I think we were deservedly punished.

You are not going to tell that Manchester City won the title because Manchester United gave them the title.

"In my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency, you win titles with quality but you win titles with consistency at every level. You can not say that Manchester City won the title because Manchester United lost a game". But I expect you to be consistent in a certain level.

"We are a team that has beaten every other team in the Premier League - beaten every one of the top six". "Everyone is disappointed. We didn't play well at all and it's a bad afternoon for us".
