Rodriguez headed home for West Brom, with United's 1-0 defeat seeing City seal the title without kicking a ball.

Ahead of the Baggies' visit, the Manchester United boss confirmed that he had a full squad at his disposal apart from second-choice goalkeeper Sergio Romero who has been out on the sidelines since the worldwide break.

In defence, Phil Jones and Daley Blind are back from injury after spending a significant amount of time out on the sidelines.

Attack: Alexis Sanchez produced an encouraging performance in the second half at the Etihad so the Chilean global should keep his place in the attack against West Brom. Manchester City ended their three-match losing run with a convincing win over Tottenham at Wembley Stadium.

A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in flawless style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate.

Rodriguez was accused of using "abusive and/or insulting words which included a reference to ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race" towards Brighton and Hove Albion defender Gaëtan Bong during a Premier League clash in January.

The English goalkeeper, who recently turned 35, averaged 2.19 saves per game before the match against his former club and pulled off another hat-trick of saves to deny United on Sunday. The Spaniard has accumulated 16 clean sheets in the Premier League and will be looking to add another one, as he chases his first Golden Glove award.

It's a happy ending to a disappointing week that saw them dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool and blow a 2-0 lead in the Manchester derby that would have seen them claim the crown against their bitter rivals.

"It would be one of the best three seasons I have ever had as a player and as a manager".

West Brom have 21 points after three wins, 12 draws and 18 defeats. They have dropped a league-high 26 points from winning positions this season.

City need just nine points from their final games to set a new record for most Premier League points while another 11 goals would see them set a new goal-scoring record.
