West Brom shocks United, clinching Premier League title for Manchester City

West Brom shocks United, clinching Premier League title for Manchester City

"We've won you the league, Manchester City, we've won you the league", sang West Brom's fans near the end of the game.

Eder Militao is on the radar of Chelsea after Manchester City were also rumoured to be interested in the Sao Paulo midfielder, the Daily Mirror reports. The referee blatantly missed a disgusting challenge, and this would prove costly to Manchester United. Yet, in order to do that, they would have to repeat performances like that one for the best part of the 38 matches.

Manchester United have a complete squad apart from second-choice goalkeeper Sergio Romero who injured himself during the global break when on national duty with Argentina.

Manchester United's biggest chance came late in the second half. Lukaku's powerful and low 67th-minute header was denied by a diving save from Foster, while Lingard's 20-yard shot whistled past the post.

The second half was not much better but Foster did wonderfully well after 66 minutes to tip a Lukaku effort around the post before the visitors resistance was then unexpectedly rewarded with 17 minutes remaining. However, the onus will be on Solomon Rondon and Jay Rodriguez to provide the necessary firepower at the front. Manchester United simply got unlucky. Refusing to be drawn on the Frenchman's reported misgivings, Mourinho merely said that buying players to compete with Lukaku would mean further competition for other members of the squad.

Richard Garlick, director of football administration at West Brom, welcomed the decision.

West Bromwich Albion must maintain focus and ignore talk of relegation from the Premier League in the final stretch of a dismal season, caretaker manager Darren Moore said on Friday. The Red Devils never looked convincing enough to score.

Winning the title with five matches to go makes City the joint earliest champions in the Premier League era - matching the achievement of the 2000-01 Manchester United team.

United's comeback at the Etihad from a 2-0 half-time deficit offered their supporters a rare fillip of flair and excitement after a hard season where their style of play has hardly endeared Jose Mourinho to the club's fanbase.

United are now just one point ahead of third-placed Liverpool, albeit with a game in hand to play against Bournemouth in midweek, and Mata acknowledges the importance of quickly recovering from the shock setback.
