Man City confirmed as champions as rivals United lose

16 Abril 2018

Rashford, meanwhile, has found himself left out more often than not since Alexis Sanchez's arrival from Arsenal in January.

Jay Rodriguez (73') Manchester United 0-1 West Brom The Exploding Heads recap another Premier League weekend and wonder if it's too soon to celebrate Manchester City's title. The City man has received criticism all season, despite the improvement in his play and also has to constantly endure the boos whenever he returns to Anfield. But his substitution sparked some hope into the game, though it couldn't be translated into anything more.

Darren Moore says that he is only focused on the next match after impressing during his caretaker spell in charge of West Bromwich Albion. "The players gave an amazing performance". Was Mourinho at fault?

Lukaku must have thought he had broken the deadlock after 65 minutes but former United goalkeeper Foster got down superbly to repel the Belgian's powerful header from Nemanja Matic's cross. But while they won't have that moment of camaraderie in getting a result of winning the title, they still get the trophy at the end of the day.

The Baggies official Twitter account tweeted a graphic on the full time whistle showing the score accompanied by a photograph of Jay Rodriguez celebrating his goal. Not to forget the once in a lifetime opportunity to win the league against your local rivals.

Many expected the Etihad side to claim the prize last season after appointing Pep Guardiola, but they found themselves usurped by Antonio Conte's Chelsea, who have been rather subdued this time around and look very likely to finish outside of the top four.

Nobody expected this result, so it was a nice surprise for City to become champions one week earlier than they had anticipated, and for that they owe thanks to West Brom, who made sure they knew that.

So what are those shortcomings?

He would have been as surprised as everyone else that the title, seemingly a foregone conclusion for months, was rubber-stamped in such strange circumstances.

'I NEEDED TO CHANGE THE DYNAMIC'"In the first half, I felt that I had to bring one player with more dynamic and more of a run and more of a player that touched the ball and searched for spaces, so I had to make a decision about one midfield player out to play Jesse Lingard". The lack of leadership and organisation was horrific.

Perhaps the only comfort for United supporters is that City were denied the kind of thrilling champagne moment that fans crave. A first campaign in the Championship since 2009-10 awaits.

West Brom became the first team to win a game at Old Trafford, having started the day bottom of the league, since Blackburn in 2011.

The champions' dominance has been evident across an impressive 28 league victories.

Manchester City have became the Premier League champions.

The problem never really improved under Louis van Gaal.
