Manchester City clinch Premier League title

City had won convincingly against Tottenham Hotspurs on Saturday, leaving their fate in the hands of United team waiting to engage the Baggies the next day.

As for City, it has a month to finish a season with the most points, goals and wins in a single Premier League campaign.

Manchester City ended their three-match losing run with a convincing win over Tottenham at Wembley Stadium.

Mourinho said his players were "masters in complicated football".

Guardiola has won the League Cup already for City this season but a first Premier League title, to go with the three La Liga titles he won as manager of Barcelona and the three Bundesliga titles he delivered for Bayern Munich, will be particularly satisfying for the Spaniard.

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

West Brom had dropped 8 of the past nine matches and then last won on January 1-3.

The Dutch youngster later apologised in person to Vettel and to his Red Bull team on social media. "I think he got it". I left a little bit of room as well", Vettel told Sky Sports . "I was expecting him to come earlier".

But Jay Rodriguez's goal in the 73rd minute gave West Brom a glimmer of hope as they are now nine points off safety with 12 to play for. 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.

"It's been the story of our season, 70 percent possession, 1-0, lots of chances and then you wonder how you lose the game", said manager Arsene Wenger afterwards.

West Brom finished with their backs to the wall but had chances of their own, and Jake Livermore had earlier tested David De Gea with arguably the best opportunity before the break.

West Brom caretaker coach Darren Moore praised his staff and players after they produced one of the upsets of the Premier League season, beating Man Utd 2-1 at Old Trafford. I was unfortunate enough to play against that quality United side that dominated in the '90s, but this side would have beaten them - that's how good they are.

"We deserve top be punished, but the defeat was too heavy".

Here's the best of the social media reaction to City winning the Premier League for the third time in the club's history.

The Baggies official Twitter account tweeted a graphic on the full time whistle showing the score accompanied by a photograph of Jay Rodriguez celebrating his goal. He name-checked eight games - Milan against Napoli, Schalke against Borussia Dortmund, Celtic against Rangers, P.S.V. Eindhoven against Ajax - but not the one that could decide the title.
