Manchester City locks up Premier League crown after Man United loss

Share

West Brom have become something of a bogey side for United, who have not done the league double over them since 2011-12 and thje Old Trafford club will perhaps be happy to see them relegated to the Championship, should the seemingly inevitable be confirmed in the coming weeks.

A 16-point lead with five games to play and 93 goals scored represents an emphatic response, not that any doubts ever existed inside the City dressing room. "Don't say City won the title because United did not win, it is not fair on them", he said.

City manager Pep Guardiola might have missed the moment that his first English title was sealed, however, after admitting on Saturday he had a round of golf booked with his son.

"Our Time. Our City. Our City. Premier League Champions 17/18".

Stastny and Copp scored 1:42 apart, with Byfuglien sending a backhander to the front of the net that Statsny slapped in at 7:42. That was not the case in Winnipeg as the Jets' supremely skilled lineup and solid defense corps kept coming in waves.

And while the outright record for the earliest Premier League finish slipped through their fingers, the club's campaign still ranks among the most successful in the league's history.

A serial victor as a manager with Barcelona and Barcelona, Guardiola ended his first year in England at City without silverware - his only failure to win a trophy since his managerial career started back in 2007.

Vincent Kompany barely let Manchester City's Premier League title celebrations begin before setting his side the challenge of making it two in a row next season. "So happy to be able to share another trophy with our fantastic fans!" tweeted City's captain Vincent Kompany.

It is City's fifth English top-flight title, their last Premier League triumph having come in the 2013-14 season.

Manchester City's swaggering march to the title has seen Pep Guardiola's side hailed as one of the finest teams in the Premier League era. Thoroughly deserved and won with a style of football that is truly joyous to watch.

"I think we were deservedly punished because we were masters in complication", Mourinho said, throwing his players under the bus. "Everything was slow or one more touch, one more flick, one more turn, and ball lost". There was no fluidity. His team were well organised without the ball, ambitious in possessiont and fully deserved to win, even if they needed Foster to be at his best.

Old Trafford was already celebrating with Lukaku's seemingly unstoppable header travelling towards the bottom-corner, but the ex-United man somehow kept it out. - Trust the process - "I trust in my work, that is for sure - I have no reason not to trust", he said. 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. Last not 20 years ago, it was three. For myself, my family, and I'm just a great believer that the truth always comes out.
