West Brom caretaker coach Darren Moore praised his staff and players after they produced one of the upsets of the Premier League season, beating Man Utd 2-1 at Old Trafford. Pep Guardiola's side defeated Spurs on Saturday to put the pressure all on Jose Mourinho and his team.

Manchester United are looking to secure a sixth consecutive Premier League victory, something they last achieved in January 2017.

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 ideal style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate. Even if United had won, they would have been 13 points behind with five games to play and a City win at home to Swansea would have sealed the title. Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling scored for City either side of an Ilkay Gundogan penalty as they bounced back in style from the disappointment of their Champions League quarter-final exit at the hands of Liverpool in midweek. So, if you ask me, I'm expecting Paul now to be man of the match every week? No. It isn't quite the record for earliest title-winning date. A United victory on Sunday afternoon would keep City's champagne on ice for a few more days at least. They managed to come back from 0-2 against their city rivals, and delayed the inevitable Premier League title for Manchester City.

Mourinho said: "We were masters in complicated football, everything was complicated".

"I trust in my work".


"I think United will win". United's poor performance in front of their fans was in stark opposite to the last weekend's win at the Etihad.

"This one differs in that we were consistent the whole season and we were able to play at the level we're expected to perform at".

West Brom have taken just two points from the last 30 available to them (D2 L8).

The second half was not much better but Foster did wonderfully well after 66 minutes to tip a Lukaku effort around the post before the visitors resistance was then unexpectedly rewarded with 17 minutes remaining. They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points. According to Adam Marshall, who is a member of United's media team, the forward was unable to join in with the post-match celebrations because he was throwing up in the toilets.
