Man City crowned champions after West Brom defeated Manchester United

Well, that was grim wasn't it?

A win for United could have only derailed City's deserved league title victory, but West Brom had different ideas. On an individual level, the likes of Pogba, Sanchez and Lukaku failed to produce the spark and unlock West Brom's stellar defence.

He said: "Probably because I (have) won eight championships I was not in the moon with the victory against them, because that doesn't make me feel super happy". He was the reason why the Devils could not score from those few opportunities they managed to create and teams from the mid-table and lower end of the Premier League will be looking at Foster during the summer.

Not for the first time this season at Old Trafford United started sluggishly and could have been a goal down after 12 minutes.

Some United fans rejoiced, simply content that Jose Mourinho's spoiling tactics incensed their Liverpool counterparts.

Officials say majority were stabbed or slashed; No officers were wounded, and the names of the dead haven't been released. Lee County Fire & Rescue says multiple agencies were called into assist with the "mass-casualty incident" at the prison.

West Brom's victor arrived in the 73rd minute when Chris Brunt's corner was nodded back into the danger area by Nemanja Matic, under pressure from Craig Dawson, and Rodriguez stooped to head beyond David de Gea.

United's afternoon was symptomatic of their entire season. It has been the story of 2017-18. Newcastle United hadn't won a home game since October when they beat United in February. United are banned from doing anything but losing at Stamford Bridge under the unwritten law which also forbids United to do anything other than get hammered when they play Tottenham away, one the Reds have faithfully abided by in recent seasons, including this January.

City are worthy champions, having been head and shoulders above their neighbours as well as the rest of the league this season.

In spite of enjoying the maximum amount of possession during the 90 minutes, Mourinho's men delivered monotonous football, incurring the wrath of the United faithful.

The win, only their fourth of the season, still leaves West Brom nine points adrift of safety.

Young is hampered further by being a right-footed player, playing at left-back, so his unfamiliarity with the position means his tendency to overlap diminishes still further. The likes of Paul Pogba - he has been a show pony. Both look like they've regressed since joining, while every City player - according to my mates who go to watch them every week, for I don't - has improved under Pep Guardiola.

Apart from the results, the quality of football at Old Trafford has fallen; an issue that needs to be addressed soon.

"They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points". "Man City, we won you the league", they chanted on their way out.

"The best way to achieving that is to aim for stability at training level, during the working week, and from what I have seen in the past two or three weeks I am really happy with him".
