Manchester City clinch Premier League title after Man Utd shock defeat
Manchester United suffered the double embarrasment of losing 1-0 at home to rock-bottom West Bromwich Albion and handing Manchester City the title yesterday.
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. West Brom had lost eight of their previous nine games and last won in Jan. 13.
It is Abu Dhabi-owned City’s third title in seven seasons and their first since former boss Manuel Pellegrini achieved the feat in 2013-14.
Guardiola has won the League Cup already for City this season but a first Premier League title, to go with the three La Liga titles he won as manager of Barcelona and the three Bundesliga titles he delivered for Bayern Munich, will be particularly satisfying for the Spaniard.
