Manchester City win EPL as West Brom shock United

Transfer report Jonny Evans ‘hoping to leave West Brom and join Manchester City this summer

Jonny Evans reportedly wants to move back to Manchester with Pep Guardiola's City this summer

Manchester United suffered the double embarrasment of losing 1-0 at home to rock-bottom West Bromwich Albion and handing Manchester City the title this afternoon.

Jose Mourinho's United team had needed to win against West Brom to keep the title race alive but surprisingly lost at home as Jay Rodriguez's header gave the league's bottom side a 1-0 win at Old Trafford.

The most different games scored in by a player in a single Premier League campaign, without winning a single one is seven (Jordan Ayew in 2015-16).

City's captain Vincent Kompany told Sky Sports: You can't describe the feeling.

Nothing is going the Baggies' way and they are a side in total disarray at the moment with confidence levels in the team low as the prospect of relegation looms larger with each passing day.

Few - including Guardiola - expected it to happen on Sunday. If the reverse fixture is anything to go by though, they might run their hosts close on Sunday, with Manchester United only enjoying a narrow 2-1 win in December.

"We could not say that any of the other evidence or competing arguments lead us to prefer one over the other". Winning titles in every league is important, with Barcelona was special.

The match had looked on course to end in a stalmate, with top-drawer saves from David De Gea and Ben Foster the highlights before Rodriguez's goal from a corner handed a third Premier League crown to City.

Thierry Henry: "I am not surprised with what Pep has done in this league and past year, I was one of the people saying stop having a go at the man because that's how he plays".

"I trust in my work, that is for sure - I have no reason not to trust", he said.

The commentariat will no doubt point towards Pogba's substitution as further evidence of some imaginary rift between himself and Mourinho, but the fact of the matter is that any member of either midfield or attack could have deservedly been taken off against West Brom. They have been the best team during the season and the distance of points at the end of the season will be the effect of that superiority that they showed. According to Adam Marshall, who is a member of United's media team, the forward was unable to join in with the post-match celebrations because he was throwing up in the toilets.
