City seal title as 50/1 gamble comes in

West Brom Jay Rodriguez Manchester United

West Brom Jay Rodriguez Manchester United

This was one of the worst displays of Jose Mourinho's reign, with the Red Devils putting in a shocking performance devoid of intensity or attacking invention.

City missed the chance to claim the title last weekend when they let a two-goal lead slip at home to United, Paul Pogba scoring twice in a stunning comeback win for Jose Mourinho's men.

"They won because they were the best team, they lost only a few points".

"Probably because I won eight championships I was not on the moon with the victory against them because that doesn't make me feel super-happy".

United should have had a first-half penalty after Craig Dawson caught Ander Herrera, but complacency seeped in and West Brom showed fight under caretaker boss Darren Moore that has been sorely lacking this season.

It was Arsenal's fifth consecutive away defeat in the Premier League.

The United manager remains confident in his own ability but said his side must replicate City's consistency next season. "Eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues", he said.

"I think we all believed in the style, otherwise it wouldn't have happened. We did not deserve to lose, we gave them opportunity to win the match". This league title is for you too!

Four days on from reaching the Champions League last four for the first time in a decade, Liverpool moved ever closer to sealing their place back in the competition next season with a top-four finish thanks to a routine 3-0 win over Bournemouth.

"The mental level, the day by day, everything must be consistent until the last day so one of the things we have to improve is consistency". The England midfielder's effort lacked venom, though, and was parried to safety by David de Gea.

England global Rodriguez scored his 11th goal of the season when the home side failed to clear Chris Brunt's corner.

"West Brom outworked them; they wanted to go out and hurt them".

United pushed numbers forward in the closing stages, but Foster never really looked in danger of being tested again as United succumbed to a defeat that was celebrated by the blue half of Manchester with even more vigour than usual. "After 10 minutes, I turned and there was a weird atmosphere and I could only see West Brom scoring". "I want to bring a family atmosphere to the club".
