Man City wins Premier League after United loses to West Brom

Man City wins Premier League after United loses to West Brom

By winning the title with five matches remaining, City have equalled the English top-flight record (Manchester United in 1907-08 and 2000-01, and Everton in 1984-85 all won the top-flight title with five games to spare).

Jose Mourinho has named the six teams that should be capable of challenging Manchester City for the Premier League title.

Manchester United handed the Premier League title to neighbours Manchester City after losing 1-0 to rock-bottom West Brom at Old Trafford on Sunday.

And then came the sucker punch - a 72nd-minute corner was inexplicably headed back across goal by Nemanja Matic, and there was the unmarked Rodriguez to head home.

It was already pretty much nailed-on that Manchester City would lift the trophy, but José Mourinho's side was still mathematically in it - until they lost at home to the worst team in the league, that is.

"I saw lots of people on the moon because we won against Manchester City".

"I don't know if I was the first or second or third, but I congratulated them face to face when I had the chance", Mourinho said.

The defeat at Old Trafford helped the Etihad outfit mathematically win the Premier League. Eight titles. Three Premier League.

With City's victory over Tottenham Hotspur's on Saturday, Man United had to avoid defeat against Albion to keep the title race alive.

Speaking after the game, the United boss said: "We were masters in complicated football".

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.

But where do they rank among the Premier League's most celebrated sides?

He added: "The time of our best period was the time when they scored their goal".

"I had a feeling when I woke up this morning", Kompany said. "In my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency". You have to be consistent at every level, not just the performance level. He suggested his players over-reacted to the win against City.

United now occupy second place in the table but are 16 points adrift of top spot and Mourinho insists greater consistency is required if his charges have designs on wrestling City's crown from their clutches next season.

Mourinho was hardly effusive in his praise when asked about City's success, but did concede they deserved to be champions.
