Bottom-of-the table West Brom Albion crowned Manchester City the English Premier League champions for 2017/2018, after a stunning 1-0 defeat of Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday. Not to forget the once in a lifetime opportunity to win the league against your local rivals. "We wanted to dribble and dribble, and everything was complicated". He was hoodwinked by last week's game.

In what was a largely subdued affair, the West Brom striker showed great willingness and popped up to grab the winning goal.

City manager Pep Guardiola might have missed one of the proudest moments of his career, however, after admitting on Saturday that he had a round of golf booked with his son and was not planning to watch United's game. In the 18th minute, Craig Dawson took down Ander Herrera in the box.

The moment will be a special one, particularly for Raheem Sterling.

Afterwards, Mourinho indicated that his players did not execute the game plan as he had hoped.

Fans hoping for an exciting first half were left wanting, as neither side showed much inspiration and the managers' tactics negated each team's strengths.

The Albion board may want a more experienced hand at the tiller next season, while the fans will probably crave a bigger name in management terms. "The players gave an amazing performance".

"We played against a really formidable team today", Moore told the BBC. But they would also need United to lose to West Brom-who had just three PL wins all season. After that, West Brom used up the final half hour and got the win. Click any of these buttons below!

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial began the game on the bench, but the players picked ahead of them only made a case for why the pair should start more often.

"I'm proud for players and staff and way they have acquitted themselves today. I am pleased we managed to show everyone that".

But Jay Rodriguez's second-half goal on Sunday helped City secure the title they last won in 2014. But he still let on too many errors, one, in particular, that could have ended in a goal.

Guardiola, who failed to land a new prize in his very first season in charge in The Etihad, started his own account by winning the League Cup in February towards Arsenal.

For all the expensive arrivals at Old Trafford over the past year, the gap never closed.

Manchester United lose to the worst team in the Premier League, gifting their rivals Manchester City the 2017-18 Premier League title. Read the thoughts of the boss in his post-match interview with Sky Sports.
