Manchester City crowned Premier League champions as West Brom defeat Manchester United”

After exiting the Champions League and failing to win the league last weekend against United, City's match at Wembley was probably the biggest test for them this season.

United fans now hope that West Brom are relegated to the Championship - and that wish should come true, despite Sunday's shock result.

United tried to find their way back into the match after that, but were unable to penetrate the West Brom defence and suffered their sixth loss of the league season.

Victor Lindelof could be recalled as Mourinho has been rotating him and Eric Bailly lately so the Ivory Coast international may drop to the bench with Chris Smalling keeping his place following his heroics at the Etihad.

The frontman has been in fine for the Red Devils and scored his 100 Premier League goal against Swansea City. "Premier League Champions 17/18", City tweeted soon after the final whistle, when the fifth English top-flight title of its history was assured. "We depend on us", said Guardiola. At the start of the second half, it really was same of the same as both sides failed to show enough enthusiasm in their play. Sanchez tried to strike the rebound but again Foster reacted immediately. Mourinho attempted to end the stalemate - and the tedium - by introducing Anthony Martial with half an hour remaining and his introduction undoubtedly lifted the quiet Old Trafford atmosphere.

"It's the type of squaring up that you might laugh about with the other player later in the game".

Lukaku has gone from strength to strength following his stint at West Brom, enjoying a goal-laden spell with Everton before joining Man United last summer.

"People say it was a big failure, what happened last week, but they don't understand the reality of football".

Baggies' director of football administration Richard Garlick, who attended Wednesday's hearing, added: "Everyone at the club is delighted for Jay because this has been a trying period for him". That's how I think.

"That is when alarm bells started ringing in my head and I knew I needed to speak to the players".
