Manchester United 0 v West Brom 1 - story of the match

CHAMPIONS CityTV went round to Vincent Kompany's in-laws to watch his reaction to the United West Brom game

The win also confirmed Manchester City as the Premier League winners.

Manchester City have won the 2017-18 English Premier League title after city rivals, Manchester United lost 1-0 to West Brom at Old Trafford on Sunday. On an individual level, the likes of Pogba, Sanchez and Lukaku failed to produce the spark and unlock West Brom's stellar defence.

The Spain worldwide told MUTV in the wake of a disappointing home reversal against West Brom which gifted the Premier League crown to City: "Second position was not done before the game".

"I won eight titles and I am not [over] the moon because I won against Manchester City", he added.

A stirring comeback against Pep Guardiola's men last weekend prevented United's neighbours from winning the title and Mourinho suggested that dramatic result created complacency in his side.

West Brom: Ben Foster 7, Allan Nyom 6, Craig Dawson 6, Ahmed El-Sayed Hegazi 6, Kieran Gibbs 6, Matt Phillips 6, Jake Livermore 6, Chris Brunt 6, James McClean 6, Salomon Rondon 6, Jay Rodriguez 7.

Like to win against City was the most important thing ever.

Mata sliced wide from just outside the penalty area before the ineffective Pogba was hauled off for Anthony Martial just before the hour in a desperate attempt to inject some spark into United's lifeless attack.

Premier League title can help Man City grow in stature - Pep Guardiola
City's club captain, who celebrated the win live on camera , spoke to Sky Sports in the aftermath of City being crowned champions. Speaking after Saturday's 3-1 win over Tottenham, the 47-year-old gave all the credit to his players.

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

The 47-year-old also took the German title three times with Bayern Munich, but he believes the unique strength in depth and physical demands of the Premier League makes this triumph among his very best.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, the United boss did not hold back in his criticism of his players, saying: "We were masters in complication".

"We didn't play simple, everything was slow, one more flick, trick, turn".

"With my experience you don't titles with inconsistency".

"I saw lots of people in the moon because we won against City". Yet, in order to do that, they would have to repeat performances like that one for the best part of the 38 matches.

Although Mourinho says that he is not expecting Pobga to perform like that every week, he does want the midfielder to be more consistent for his team moving forward.

Newcastle United virtually guaranteed their Premier League safety as they came from a goal down to beat Arsenal 2-1 at a spring-like St James' Park yesterday.
