  • Manchester City are Premier League champions as United slump at home to West Brom

A defeat might have prompted a serious challenge from Jose Mourinho's men, but goals from David Silva and Nicolas Otamendi secured a deserved 2-1 win after the visitors controlled the majority of the action.

"Manchester City, we won it for you" chanted the West Brom fans at the end of a match greeted by jeers by the home faithful.

This scalp keeps Albion afloat for another week but relegation to the Championship still seems a certainty despite their best result of the season. And the most goals. Read the thoughts of the boss in his post-match interview with Sky Sports.

Among countless star turns in Guardiola's side, Kevin De Bruyne has been the standout. He name-checked eight games - Milan against Napoli, Schalke against Borussia Dortmund, Celtic against Rangers, P.S.V. Eindhoven against Ajax - but not the one that could decide the title.

First came a double-save in the first half as he did well to block Lukaku's shot with his face before quickly denying Sanchez's follow up.

Albion's gameplan was working.

Lindelof will join Chris Smalling at centre-back, while Mata will play with Alexis Sanchez and striker Romelu Lukaku in the attack.

Pogba was slightly fortunate to stay on the pitch after clipping McClean's bursting run forward while already on a yellow and he was immediately substituted off by Mourinho, who sensed danger. The Baggies beat a hapless United side 1-0 at Old Trafford.

Manchester United looked much stronger during the second half, but they ultimately could not get a goal past Foster.

United delayed City's title celebrations by winning last week's derby at the Etihad Stadium but Mourinho admitted that victory had a hollow feel.

Lingard almost made an immediate impact after coming on only to see his shot blocked by the West Brom back line.

Manchester United handed the Premier League title to neighbours Manchester City after losing 1-0 to rock-bottom West Brom at Old Trafford on Sunday. "We depend on us", he told the BBC.

Perhaps that's because the pressure is off now everyone has accepted they're down.

Second-place United are now 16 points behind Pep Guardiola's side with only five games left to play.

Here's the best of the social media reaction to City winning the Premier League for the third time in the club's history.

What to make of Paul Pogba? It was a set piece and a lovely goal from Rodriguez so thank you.

20th, with 24 points from 34 games. That one will stay with 2000-01 Manchester United by one day.
