City seal title as 50/1 gamble comes in

A 73rd minute header from Jay Rodriguez gave Albion, who appear doomed to relegation, their first away win in 16 outings and just their fourth victory of the season.

After starting the title party with his Mancunian wife and his United-supporting father-in-law, City captain Vincent Kompany joined team-mates to raise a glass to their success.

"Champions! What a terrific feeling! So happy to be able to share another trophy with our wonderful fans", the 32-year-old Belgian defender said on Twitter.

Pogba was the star of the show as Manchester United came from two goals down to secure an impressive 3-2 win over Manchester City in the derby clash earlier this month.

But Jose Mourinho's men still ended up handing the trophy to City with a lacklustre display against bottom of the table Albion, who had won only three times in the league this season before this weekend.

"I knew that sooner or later they would be (champions) and if I was in their position I would be very upset if someone said they won the title because Manchester United lost against West Brom".

Mourinho felt that his side allowed their opponents too much time to get into shape when they were on the attack. It was three years ago, and I know how to win. I have been lucky to win three but so many I have missed as well.

Spain's central government imposed direct rule on Catalonia following its unilateral declaration of independence in October. If a new leader is not named before the end of May, Catalonia will be forced to call another election.

"Probably because I won eight championships I was not on the moon with the victory against them because that doesn't make me feel super-happy".

Because of goal difference, United realistically needed to win all of their six remaining games and hope City lost their last five matches. "In that semi-final, they are having one day extra to us to recover so I need also to think about that".

"We did it! An unbelievable journey to get here".

City have unquestionably been the best team in England but their status has been undermined by their Champions League exit.

City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, a candidate for Player of the Year, said: "Unbelievable season for us".

Now Bookmakers are already looking ahead to next season and City are odds-on to seal back-to-back titles. It means we can now focus exclusively on the breathtaking football, the power and vision of Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling's development, Leroy Sane's unstoppable surges down the left, Kyle Walker's dominance of the right flank and Guardiola's determination to win his way.

He said: "We won the Carabao Cup and that was a step in the right direction for me but to be competing in the Premier League since I was 19 and to play all the games I played in the Premier League, to not win the Premier League, it was a bit devastating for me not to have won it with Tottenham".
