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.
