Premier League on Betfair: Man City confirmed as champions after Baggies shock United

It's been nearly inevitable for the whole of 2018 but Manchester City have today sealed the Premier League title without even kicking a ball on Sunday afternoon.

A week after denying City the chance to win the title in front of their own fans, Mourinho's United gifted the trophy to their near rivals with an embarrassing defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

This was not the first time Pogba was substituted early by Mourinho this season, although the 25-year-old had completed the 90 minutes in United's previous four league matches.

And that was also the case on Sunday, as United failed to spark the imagination in any tangible way even though they were playing a side that had hadn't won in the league since January.

"City won the title because they won more points than everyone else, they were the best team".

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.

United were as abysmal against West Brom as they were brilliant against Man City.

"The mental level, the day by day, everything must be consistent until the last day so one of the things we have to improve is consistency".


The Frenchman was hauled off by Mourinho before the hour mark, making way for Anthony Martial, with West Brom scoring their victor 15 minutes later.

"I had a feeling when I woke up this morning", Kompany said.

Mourinho said his players were "masters in complicated football".

United travel to Bournemouth in the Premier League on Wednesday, before heading to London to take on Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday.

The Portuguese manager said that City deserved their title and he had offered them his congratulations after the derby win.

"Everything was one more touch, one more flick, one more pass, one more touch", Mounrinho added. I know how to win and I believe in myself. "I saw lots of people in the moon because we won against Manchester City".

Immeasurably worse for United is that Sunday's catastrophe was preceded by the performance of the season, a comeback that ranks among the greatest in the proud history of a club that epitomises "never say die". After Paul Pogba drew a comfortable save out of Foster with a tame strike from distance on seven minutes, the visitors created two good chances.
