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. It is hard to speak about Manchester City for me, but what Pep Guardiola has done is incredible; to win the title with the football he plays is great.

City skipper Vincent Kompany has won a few Premier League titles since linking.

Guardiola's team has lost only two league games this season and if they win their remaining five games would end the campaign with 102 points.

"It's the exact same sense while the very first time", the 32-year-old Belgium told Sky Sports.

Sunday's title win now takes Guardiola's trophy haul as a coach to 24 following successful stints at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

United, its nearest contender, had been expected to cut that back to 13 - with five games to play - on Sunday.

The win was West Brom's first since a 2-0 success over Brighton on 12 January and only their fourth all season.

Mourinho greeted West Brom caretaker manager Darren Moore with a warm hug after the two teams had made their way onto the pitch.

Jay Rodriguez proved to be the most unlikely of title-deciders when he stooped low to head the Baggies in front on 73 minutes. Everything was slow, everything was one more touch, one more flick, one more trick, one more turn, ball lost and no continuity or fluidity in our football.

David De Gea - 4/10, 10/10 He was at fault for the second City goal to begin with.

If Moore was able to coax such a performance out of these players, then what could he, or an alternative choice, have done with more time?

Paul Pogba, the two goal hero last week, was substituted in the 58th minute after a poor display in which he also picked up a yellow card.

"We deserve top be punished, but the defeat was too heavy".

The Reds slipped to a surprise loss against the relegation-threatened Baggies at Old Trafford, courtesy of a second-half header from Jay Rodriguez.

They could yet beat three significant Premier League landmarks set by Chelsea - the highest points tally of 95 in 2004-2005, the most wins in a season at 30 in 2016-2017 and the most goals scored at 103 in 2009-2010.

And though Foster won't be at the World Cup in June, he could yet be in the Premier League with a new club next season.
