Baggies Hand City Premier League Title After Shock United Win

Baggies Hand City Premier League Title After Shock United Win

But Jay Rodriguez's close-range header earned the league's bottom side a famous 1-0 win at Old Trafford, handing the title to City.

Just two additional players have captained longer premierleague title winners - Chelsea'therefore John Terry (five titles) along with Manchester United's previous priest Roy Keane (four). "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".

Guardiola and his team had hoped, of course, to win a third championship in seven years in rather more satisfying circumstances: had Guardiola and City beaten Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium last Saturday, they would have claimed the title on home soil, against their fiercest rival.

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

Sunday's title win now takes Guardiola's trophy haul as a coach to 24 following successful stints at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

United have 71 also with five to play.

West Brom had dropped 8 of the past nine matches and then last won on January 1-3.

Mourinho greeted West Brom caretaker manager Darren Moore with a warm hug after the two teams had made their way onto the pitch.


The West Brom fans didn't miss a chance to make light of the situation on a day of disappointment for the home side.

"We didn't play simple, everything was slow, one more flick, trick, turn". Six years later, the finale was much more underwhelming, with Rodriguez nodding in from a corner to silence the majority of Old Trafford and set up one of the most surprising wins of the season.

"You can not imagine", Guardiola said on Saturday.

While still nine points from safety, it was an fantastic end to a match that had started with Livermore showing composure that belied his role as a midfield enforcer as he cut away from Victor Lindelof to be denied by De Gea.

"This one differs in that we were consistent the whole season and we were able to play at the level we're expected to perform at".

"I saw lots of people in the moon because we won against City". It's a penalty and nothing else but I think we deserved to be punished. Manchester City have been a cut above the rest all season, and now they are confirmed as the best team in the Premier League.

This was the fifth season in which the Premier League title was decided at Old Trafford - more than any other ground in the competition.

"Eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues".
