Manchester City wins English Premier League title after rivals Manchester United stumble

Pep Guardiola's side are now uncatchable at the top of the table after United's shock defeat to the bottom-of-the-table Baggies after Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute strike sealed their fate.

"I knew that sooner or later they would be (champions) and if I was in their position I would be very upset if someone said they won the title because Manchester United lost against West Brom".

Next up for West Brom is a home game against Liverpool on Saturday, and nothing less than a win will do, if they are to have any chance whatsoever of avoiding the drop down to England's second tier.

"We've won the league for you, Man City, Man City", West Brom's fans chanted after the final whistle.

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.

Manchester City players chose to celebrate their Premier League title win in a local pub with their faithful supporters on Sunday.

Relegation to the Championship is still nearly a certainty, with nine points separating them from 17th placed Swansea City, but the mood within the West Brom camp would have at least been lifted after yesterday's win.

Beaten just once while winning 29 of their 38 games, Chelsea finished 12 points clear to claim their first top-flight title in 50 years and only the second in the club's history.

They have equalled the record for quickest title success held by United's 2000-01 team, winning the league with five games remaining.

"These players deserve all my respect because they have been unbelievable all season".

City skipper Vincent Kompany has now won three Premier League titles since joining 10 years ago.

"Everything was slow, everything was one more touch, one more flick, one more trick, one more turn, ball lost and no continuity or fluidity in our football".

"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". "You can't describe it".
