Man City win Premier League as Man Utd lose to West Brom

Jay Rodriguez celebrates after scoring the winner against Manchester

Manchester City clinched the English Premier League (EPL) football title with five rounds of games left as second-placed Manchester United fell 16 points behind following their 0-1 defeat to West Bromwich Albion here on Sunday.

The Reds slipped to a surprise loss against the relegation-threatened Baggies at Old Trafford, courtesy of a second-half header from Jay Rodriguez.

While City boss Pep Guardiola said he would be playing golf while the United match took place and a handful of players were reportedly out of the country, captain Kompany was at home watching the drama unfold with his family.

19 - City have beaten every opponent in the Premier League this season, becoming the third team in history to do so, after Chelsea (2005-06) and Manchester United (2010-11).

Guardiola, who failed to land a trophy in his first season in charge at The Etihad, opened his account by winning the League Cup in February against Arsenal.

"We've won the league for you, Man City, Man City", West Brom's fans chanted after the final whistle. Just a week after winning at City, Jose Mourinho's team could not even avoid defeat against the Premier League's bottom club to keep their neighbours waiting a while longer to claim the title.

"We are a team that has already more points than last season, a team that's had brilliant matches and a team that showed character many times".

Everything was complicated, they couldn't play simple, everything was one more touch, one more flick, one more turn, the ball lost.

You are not going to tell that Manchester City won the title because Manchester United gave them the title.

I had a feeling when I woke up this morning but it's a different experience when you're waiting for a team to lose. We always gave them the opportunity to be solid, compact in the low block with strong physical players.

"I trust in my work, that is for sure".

"I knew that sooner or later they would be (champions) and if I was in their position I would be very upset if someone said they won the title because Manchester United lost against West Brom".

Mourinho revealed he suspected his side would be beaten by West Brom when he noticed his players losing their focus after the derby win.

The 2012 title win had the infamous last-gasp goal by Sergio Aguero. "The amount of goals, chances and points, to do that in the Premier League, with the contenders we have, is because the players are so good".

"The mental level, the day by day, everything must be consistent until the last day so one of the things we have to improve is consistency", he said.
