Man City win title after WBA stun United

After Man City defeated Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 on Saturday, Man United needed a win over West Brom to keep the slim title hopes alive.

Manchester City can still break all the Premier League records if they so please having wrapped up the title with five games to spare.

"You can not imagine", Guardiola said on Saturday before the title race was decided.

United now occupy second place in the table but are 16 points adrift of top spot and Mourinho insists greater consistency is required if his charges have designs on wrestling City's crown from their clutches next season.

Mourinho also blamed United's overcomplicated play on their defeat to bottom-side West Brom.

Jay Rodriguez put West Brom ahead in the 73rd minute from a corner kick to give the visitors 24 points from 34 matches.

Sterling has 22 goals this season - double his best previous tally - but came under fire after missing two good chances against United.

They had Jose bloody Mourinho who has never not won a league title wherever he went. "You are playing good teams, not teams from lower leagues".

"Paul's game was complicated like many others, always one more touch, one more turn", said Mourinho.

And United were unable to claw back the deficit, handing the Premier League to their neighbours when the final whistle sounded.

'We were masters in complication.

City have won the title with five games remaining, equalling the record set by United in the 2000-01 campaign.

Jose Mourinho has stressed that Manchester United will not "do anything crazy" in the transfer market this summer in a bid to close the gap on Manchester City. We knew that only one of the six would win the title, and we were second for months and months and months, so obviously it's better to be second than third or fourth.

"I know how to win, I believe in myself but I don't play", he added.

Right-back Kyle Walker, who joined Man City last summer, said: "We did it!"

City clinched the first division league title in 1936-1937 and 1967-1968, while they have won the competition in its current form twice - in 2011-2012 and 2013-2014.

In the 12th minute, West Brom nearly took a shock lead but David De Gea got down well to palm away Jake Livermore's low strike inside the box.
