Manchester City’s title win in numbers

Manchester City confirmed champions as rivals, United lose at Old Trafford

The Spaniard has now won seven league titles and 24 trophies overall as manager in three different countries, erasing doubts that he would fail to adapt to the rigours of the Premier League. Congratulations to Manchester City, who are mathematically the Premier League winners.

Manchester City have been confirmed as Premier League champions after Manchester United suffered a shock home defeat to West Brom on Sunday.

The target for Jose Mourinho will be to steer Man United into 2nd spot in the table and a win here against doomed West Brom will be a positive step in that direction.

But the Spaniard believes leading City to the title would rank among his finest moments.

"I don't know what their problem has been this season", Lukaku added. "Tomorrow, I have golf with my son".

Not even the most enthusiastic City or West Brom fan could have predicted this - Darren Moore's side were without a win in their last 15 away league games and United were on a run of five straight league victories.

Speaking after the game, the United boss said: "We were masters in complicated football". You could see the difference in the attitude to players compared to last week. "I am delighted to have the chance to win in front of our people". "I'm sorry, it's much more important what these guys have done this season". Ilkay Gundogan slotted home a penalty three minutes later after Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris raced out of his goal and upended Raheem Sterling, although television replays suggested his wild tackle was just outside the area. If I expect him to score goals every match? No.

But just a week after his world-class performance against Man City, Pogba had a poor game in Man United's clash with West Bromwich Albion. Everything was slow. Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn.

"Sometimes it's good to take a step back and bounce. learn from it and try and improve on it".

"It's incredible the way we played and I am so glad to be here and be part of this club".

United knew heading into this game that if they were to lose, their near neighbours Manchester City would officially become champions of the 2017/18 Premier League. "When we play bad then, yes, tell the truth".
