West Brom beat United, hand City EPL title

A week later than they would have preferred, Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions on Sunday as second-placed Manchester United suffered a shock 0-1 home defeat by bottom club West Bromwich Albion.

United had denied City the chance to wrap up the title last weekend when they came from two goals down to beat their bitter rivals 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium.

Juan Mata insists Manchester United will use their galling loss to West Brom and Manchester City's subsequent title triumph to help them refocus and emerge even stronger.

A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in flawless style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate.

Even when Jay Rodriguez headed in the decisive goal, in the 73rd minute, it was alarming to see the lack of fight from a team, lest it be forgotten, that have won this league 20 times.

West Brom had a let-off in the first half when the referee, Paul Tierney, gave Craig Dawson the benefit of the doubt for a penalty-box challenge that put Ander Herrera on the floor. "In that semi-final, they are having one day extra to us to recover so I need also to think about that".

Boult gave Delhi Daredevils a terrific start, bowling a first over maiden to Chris Lynn and then accounting for Narine. He captained the Kolkata outfit, to two IPL titles during his stay and would be looking to continue his winning run.

"This is a game you always look forward to at Old Trafford, it is the biggest club in the world, to score here is fantastic and the buzz I feel for how hard we've worked is fantastic to me".

United's best chance of the game was a Romelu Lukaku header, which was superbly saved by Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Pogba was substituted by Mourinho in the 58th minute and the player departed proceedings with an air of resignation rather than annoyance at the decision. They managed 17 shots during 90 minutes, but never actually looked too unsafe for the Baggies, as they managed to win their fourth Premier League match of the term.

West Brom were rock bottom of the Premier League, 12 points off safety with five games to go before the match against Manchester United. They defended tight and conceded possession to United, two things that wouldn't be surprising when a lower league team faces a top team.

"We played a bad game this Sunday".

United now will look to secure second place and build on a slightly disappointing season which saw José Mourinho struggle to get the most out of a very talented squad. That didn't make me feel super happy, and, in my opinion, it affected some of the people that were too happy.
