Manchester City crowned English Premier League champions

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

West Brom, however, angered United fans with the eyebrow-raising tweet they posted at the full-time whistle.

While still nine points from safety, it was an incredible end to a match that had started with Livermore showing composure that belied his role as a midfield enforcer as he cut away from Victor Lindelof to be denied by David De Gea. This result left his team one point clear of third-place Liverpool, with a game in hand.

West Brom caretaker Darren Moore vowed to keep battling relegation after grabbing an unlikely survival lifeline at Old Trafford.

United was too narrow and predictable, with wide players Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata constantly cutting inside and leaving the midfield congested.

United have scored a full 30 goals fewer than City this season and Mourinho has not managed to get his side to click, despite being able to bring on further talent such as Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial. It took them 21 minutes of the second half to even muster a shot on target: Romelu Lukaku putting his whole head on a Nemanja Matic cross and drawing an excellent save from Ben Foster.

United, its nearest contender, had been expected to cut that back to 13 - with five games to play - on Sunday.

Alongside a photo of Rodriguez celebrating and the scoreline, West Brom tweeted: "You're welcome, @ManCity".

Mourinho Demands Greater Consistency From Pogba
Paul Pogba channeled his inner Goku (the lead character of the show) as he got a new, show-inspired haircut done. Other players, analysts and broadcasters congratulated the champions, with varying degrees of joy and despair.

"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.

Asked to confirm that was the case, Guardiola told Sky Sports: 'Yeah tomorrow I have golf game.

"Unbelievable season for us", said midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, perhaps City's standout player over the past eight months. Wins over West Ham and Southampton would give them 50, and have Pep's men holding yet another record. "We wanted to dribble and dribble, and everything was complicated". They can surpass Chelsea's Premier League record of 30 (2016-17) by winning three of their remaining five fixtures.

Crystal Palace, Huddersfield Town and Swansea City would also need to respectively beat Brighton & Hove Albion, Watford and Everton on Saturday in order for the Baggies to be the first team relegated to the Championship this season.

Although, observers know that it was a matter of time before City is crown the champion of the lead.

Fearing an embarrasing slip up that would crown their rivals champions, the hosts threw everything at Albion in the final 15 minutes but could not create a clear-cut chance to delay City's coronation as they did last week. "So happy to be able to share another trophy with our fantastic fans!" tweeted City's captain Vincent Kompany.

Goalkeeper Ederson Moraes was watching former club Benfica play Porto in the Portuguese league.
