Man City wins Premier League after United loses to West Brom

Pogba scored twice in the thrilling comeback 3-2 victory over Manchester City last week.

Manchester United are in second place in the Premier League table and still in with a chance of winning the FA Cup this season. "I knew that sooner or later that would be, and if I was in their position I would be very upset (if) someone said they won the league because Man United lost against West Bromwich Albion".

It's the third Premier League success for the club after the titles won in 2012 under Roberto Mancini and 2014 under Manuel Pellegrini, with captain Vincent Kompany, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure involved in all of them.

As City wrapped up the Premier League without having to kick a ball, here are five things we learned.

"I'll tell you what I told him after the match", Mourinho told reporters ahead of facing rock-bottom West Brom on Sunday, where an unlikely defeat would see City crowned champions.

'Eight titles and three Premier Leagues and the last was not 20 years ago.

"I saw lots of people in the moon because we won against City".

Manchester City have won a total of 28 games this season, leaving them just two away from Chelsea's record of 30. They were the right ones and the ones we believed in, I'm sure there are differences to how we play today compared to Bayern (Munich) and Barcelona, we survive and live by the strength of the team.

But his best moment of the match came to stop Lukaku from opening the scoring after an hour, getting down low to push Lukaku's header wide of the goal and keep his side in the match.

A serial victor as a manager with Barcelona and Bayern, Guardiola ended his first year in England at City without silverware - his only failure to win a trophy since his managerial career started back in 2007.
