Players, Fans, React To Manchester City's Title Win And United's Loss

City won the title in joint-record time with five games remaining

After resilient defence, West Brom delivered the blow on United in the 72nd minute of the game to silence the entire Old Trafford.

City missed the chance to claim the title last weekend when they let a two-goal lead slip at home to United, Paul Pogba scoring twice in a stunning comeback win for Jose Mourinho's men.

Following the Manchester Derby, City were believed to be two wins away from the title with a victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Saturday pushing them ever closer.

Relegation to the Championship is still nearly a certainty, with nine points separating them from 17th placed Swansea City, but the mood within the West Brom camp would have at least been lifted after yesterday's win.

"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".

And while they probably thought they would have to wait one more week, that's not the case. They are presently on 87 points and if Man U win all their remaining games, they can not go beyond 86 points.

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.

Snow to continue after 4th coldest start to April in Chicago's history
The forecast for Monday calls for strong winds and temperatures in the 30s, according to the weather service. Bursts of snow showers could cause reduced visibility and slippery roads at times, the weather service said.

"We were masters in complication, everything was complicated", Mourinho added.

"We did not deserve to lose, we gave them opportunity to win the match".

Yet all that brilliance came after an opening 45 minutes that had been more typical of his club form this season; out of sorts, misplacing passes and lacking in verve.

"I know that you don't want to read anything after a defeat like this one, that any comments made after the game sound like hollow words", he wrote on his blog. But I expect you to be consistent in a certain level.

"Yeah, it's good. We have, I think, a lot of positive things during the season and that's one of the things".

The result means United remain in second place in the table just a point ahead of Liverpool but having played a game less than the Reds.
