Man City win Premier League as Man Utd lose to West Brom

Manchester City won the Premier League title as Manchester United's shock 1-0 home defeat by West Brom confirmed their rivals as champions.

The ownership change has certainly made an impact as City sealed their third Premier League title under the ADUG in a decade after many years of indifferent results of mid-table and relegation battles, which also saw them drop down to the lower divisions a few times.

On Saturday: Premier League: Tottenham 1 (Eriksen 42) lost to Manchester City 3 (Jesus 22, Gundogan 25-pen, Sterling 72); Liverpool 3 (Mane 7, Salah 69, Firmino 90) bt Bournemouth 0; Newcastle 2 (Ayoze Perez 29, Ritchie 68) Arsenal 1 (Lacazette 14).

The result leaves Manchester City 16 points clear at the top with five games remaining.

"I've seen many teams win it where they've been champions all season and it's a first for me".

It's not just two games, it's about the course of the season and the quality football that City have played game after game.

West Brom had lost eight of their previous nine games and last won on Jan 13.

Given the way they have demolished all challengers in the league, it was apparent months ago that it was only a matter of when rather than if City would take the title. They started to do it with such an emphatic win over Spurs, but can now take it further by eroding so many records.

"My feeling is that United will win a lot of points because they are in a good shape and have top players".

"I've never been able to retain the title so I want to see if this team has got it in them to carry on and be even more successful".

Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne applauds fans after the match against Bristol City.

David Silva who has been superb for Manchester City this season however took the chance to reflect on his special year by uploading a photo with his son who was born prematurely in December 2017. "I think winning in Stamford Bridge gave us the confidence that we can do that".

"He unlocks everything but when you think about it he did much, much better than last season and that was important".

"You can not imagine", Guardiola said on Saturday.

'We needed a period of adaptation...his methods were the right ones, we believed in him.

"Playing in the Champions League at that age, sometimes it's complicated and maybe it's a good lesson for them for the future and for next season".
