Manchester City crowned Premier League champions as United suffer West Brom shock

United knew avoiding defeat against the league's bottom side would have delayed its city rival's coronation again, having battled from two goals down to win at the Etihad last weekend, but they turned in an insipid performance which was duly punished by Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute header.

Bottom club West Brom beat Man United 1-0 to hand Man City the EPL title.

A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in ideal style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate.

But, he need not to have anxious as West Brom's lone strike through a Jay Rodriguez's header from a Nemanja Matic's poor clearance in the United's vital area finally handed them their third title in seven years.

After that, West Brom used up the final half hour and got the win.

United had a shout for a penalty on 19 minutes after Ander Herrera was brought down only for the referee to wave play on.

Ritchie scored the victor against Manchester United on February 11 that kickstarted Newcastle's surge to safety and he did the same here, running onto Perez's flick off Islam Slimani's header to beat Petr Cech from 12 meters (yards).

Newcastle virtually assured its Premier League status for another season by coming from behind to beat a depleted Arsenal side 2-1 thanks to Matt Ritchie's second-half victor on Sunday.

'We were a complicated team and let them feel comfortable.

"Some players think it is stylish football".

'I saw lots of people in the moon because we won against City.

After sacking Alan Pardew at the start of the month, Darren Moore has been handed the West Brom until the end of the season.

Mourinho also admitted his doubts over Pogba after the match: 'Paul had a yellow card and had a situation where he may have had another booking.

"It is the number of points they have won".

The circumstances in which a dominant Manchester City won the 2018 Premier League title were unexpected.

All the same it was hard to find any plausible excuse for a team that finished with Alexis Sánchez, Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata on the pitch but barely landed a glove on willing but limited opponents. "I am pleased we managed to show everyone that".

Only in the last 10 days, as they lost to United and were knocked out of the Champions League quarter-finals by Liverpool, had City´s quality been called into question.

It was Arsenal's fifth consecutive away defeat in the Premier League.
