Man City confirmed as champions as rivals United lose

Alexis Sanchez arrives at Manchester United's Carrington training ground on Friday morning

The hosts threw everything at West Brom in the closing stages, but were unable to find a breakthrough that would have delayed City's title confirmation until at least Wednesday when United take on Bournemouth.

It's a happy ending to a disappointing week that saw them dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool and blow a 2-0 lead in the Manchester derby that would have seen them claim the crown against their bitter rivals.

"Premier League Champions 17/18", City tweeted soon after the final whistle, when the fifth English top-flight title of its history was assured.

City now sit 16 points clear in top spot with five games to play and could yet to break various Premier League records by the end of the season, with the 100-point mark within their sights.

On Sunday, Man United could hammer another nail in the Baggies' Premier League coffin, given their 12-point gap from safety, when the two lock horns at Old Trafford. The most United can now reach is 86.

"Manchester City, we won it for you" chanted the West Brom fans at the end of a match greeted by jeers by the home faithful.

Manchester United have now won five Premier League games in a row.

United manager Jose Mourinho had long given up hopes of winning the title, instead focusing on finishing second.

That could see Juan Mata recalled while Marcus Rashford may get the nod ahead of Anthony Martial amid rumours both players are becoming unsettled due to a lack of regular starts.

The English goalkeeper, who recently turned 35, averaged 2.19 saves per game before the match against his former club and pulled off another hat-trick of saves to deny United on Sunday.

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.

Chris Brunt's corner to the far post was headed back towards his own goal by Nemanja Matic under pressure from Dawson, with Rodriguez stealing in to head in from close range in the 73rd minute.
