Manchester City win Premier League title with five games to spare — EPL”

Ahmed Hegazi played the full 90 minutes, as West Bromwich Albion defeated Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford Stadium in the 34th fixture of the English Premier League. "We did not deserve to lose, we gave them opportunity to win the match". "Man City, we won you the league", they chanted on their way out.

"Some players think it is stylish football. We wanted to dribble and dribble, and everything was complicated".

Romelu Lukaku was twice denied by smart saves from Ben Foster, while Jesse Lingard also came close after his introduction from the bench at half-time.

"Winning the Premier League goes to become certainly one of the 3 seasons that that are better I have ever had as a supervisor and as a new player". But, he need not to have worried as West Brom's lone strike through a Jay Rodriguez's header from a Nemanja Matic's poor clearance in the United's vital area finally handed them their third title in seven years.

West Brom became a team who was a constant thorn in the side of United all game long.

"The feat was also achieved in the 1936-37, 1967-68, 2011-12 and 2013-14 campaigns".

United had to at least draw to keep the title race mathematically alive but were stunned at Old Trafford when Jay Rodriguez headed home after the break. But his substitution sparked some hope into the game, though it couldn't be translated into anything more. "There was no fluidity", he said.

Manchester City have became the Premier League champions. It is hard to imagine City's players and Guardiola being too bothered by that, though.

Defeat can then be accepted, it can be more palatable, because freak results happen sometimes in football.

So, where to place the blame for this drab performance? After that, West Brom used up the final half hour and got the win.

Paul Pogba's two goals against City felt like a defining moment for the France midfielder during a season which has had more downs than ups. He must know they are not United standard, he must know that having a defence as poor as this fundamentally undermines any hopes of winning a title.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Martial has become frustrated at a lack of opportunities and will consider his options at the end of the season, amid firm interest from Juventus and Atletico Madrid.

"I'm proud for players and staff and way they have acquitted themselves today".

Was poor in driving United's flank in the first-half, and was often too late in runs that could have ended otherwise.

Now the title is in the bag, the club's next challenge will be to claim the record for most points in a single season.

West Brom had lost eight of their previous nine games and last won on Jan. 13. A win from this game may do their survival chances no realistic help but it would theoretically do his chances of getting the job on a permanent basis all the good in the world.
