Man City equal top-flight record for earliest title win

Manchester United Ed Woodward Real Madrid Gareth Bale

Manchester United handed their bitter rivals the trophy as they lost 1-0 to bottom-placed West Brom at Old Trafford following City's 3-1 defeat of Tottenham on Saturday evening.

Even if United had won, they would have been 13 points behind with five games to play and a City win at home to Swansea would have sealed the title.

City nearly secured their status as champions last weekend, as they went into half-time against United with a two goal lead.

United's form, and their second-half display against City in particular, have suggested Mourinho's side is capable of challenging their neighbours at the top of the table next season.

But that only delayed the party by one week.

Baggies star Jay Rodriguez netted to stun Mourinho's men at Old Trafford. "If I was in their position, I would be very upset if someone said they won because United lost against West Brom".

Manchester City are now 16 points ahead of 2nd placed side Manchester United - the Premier League record points gap between 1st and 2nd place at the end of a season is now 18 points by Manchester United in 1999-00.

"No. We are not going to spend more than we can", he said.

The 2012 title win had the infamous last-gasp goal by Sergio Aguero.

The United manager also criticized his team members and asked them to take an advice from Lukaku and Matic on why they start nearly every game. "The mental level, day by day". "Premier League Champions 17/18", City tweeted soon after the final whistle when the fifth English top-flight title of its history was assured.
