BREAKING: Manchester City Win Premier League As West Brom Defeat Manchester United At Old Trafford
Manchester City have won the Premier League title following Manchester United’s shock defeat against West Brom on Sunday.
Jose Mourinho’s side had prevented their neighbors winning the title with a stirring comeback last weekend, but an unlikely defeat to the Baggies secured a third Premier League title for their cross-city rivals.
Second-place United are now 16 points behind Pep Guardiola’s side with only five games left to pay.
Manchester City had done the business themselves as they eased to a 3-1 win away to Tottenham a day earlier but were able to celebrate without kicking a ball, as Jay Rodriguez’s 73rd-minute goal sealed a surprise result at Old Trafford.
United pushed numbers forward in the closing stages, but Foster never really looked in danger of being tested again as United succumbed to a defeat that was celebrated by the blue half of Manchester with even more vigor than usual.
