City win Premier League title after United's home loss

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.

Jose Mourinho has named the six teams that should be capable of challenging Manchester City for the Premier League title.

Manchester City won the Premier League title without even playing on Sunday when nearest challenger Manchester United surprisingly lost 1-0 at home to last-place West Bromwich Albion.

Baggies forward Jay Rodriguez's close-ranger header in the 73rd minute was the only goal on the night as the Red Devils struggled to click in attack, with star man Paul Pogba putting in yet another underwhelmin performance.

However, the fans of West Brom - and certainly Manchester City - are likely to remember it for quite some time. "In that semi-final, they are having one day extra to us to recover so I need also to think about that".

Arsenal have long since given up hope of making the top four, instead prioritising their chances of making the Champions League next season on winning the Europa League.

On Saturday, Metropolis had convincingly overwhelmed Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 and supervisor Pep Guardiola stated he was going to play golf together with his son relatively than watch United play West Brom.

Gulf Arab states have made massive donations to Syria but have not officially offered asylum to Syrians. The league also called for an worldwide probe into the "criminal" use of chemical weapons in Syria.

"We were masters in complication, everything was complicated", Mourinho added. I know how to win and I believe in myself.

Guardiola's group has misplaced exclusively two league video games this season and in the event that they win their remaining 5 video games would finish the marketing campaign with 102 factors.

The result sparked celebrations among the Light Blue half of Manchester but Mourinho said City's title deserved to be recognised for its true value.

"I said they would win it sooner or later because they are the best team and if it wasn't today it would have been the next weekend".

Former England captain Gary Lineker, who is now a pundit, tweeted: "Congratulations to @ManCity on winning the Premier League title".

The host threw everything at West Brom in the closing stages, but were unable to find a breakthrough that would have delayed City's title confirmation until at least Wednesday when United take on Bournemouth.

But a first Premier League title, to go with the three La Liga titles he won as manager of Barcelona and the three Bundesliga titles he delivered for Bayern Munich, will be particularly satisfying.
