  • Manchester City crowned English Premier League champions
  • Manchester City have won the English
    Premier League title without even
    playing on Sunday after nearest
    challenger Manchester United were
    shocked 1-0 loss at home to bottom-
    placed West Bromwich Albion.
    After all their efforts to stop City from
    clinching the league in their 3-2 derby
    win last week, United offered a clear
    reminder of why they have not been
    close contenders for the title this year,
    with an abject display lacking in
    creativity.
    Their fans, who had celebrated the
    comeback victory at the Etihad last
    week, booed Jose Mourinho's side off
    the field after they lost to a team who
    had not won since January.
    It was City's third title in seven
    seasons and easily its most convincing,
    with Pep Guardiola's team 16 points
    clear and still having five games to
    play this season.

    City's other two Premier League
    triumphs, in 2012 and 2014, were
    sealed on the final day.
    "We've won you the league,
    Manchester City, we've won you the
    league," sang West Brom's fans near
    the end of the game.
    'Our time. Our City'
    "Our Time. Our City. Premier League
    Champions 17/18," City tweeted soon
    after the final whistle when the fifth
    English top-flight title of its history
    was assured.
    An 18-match winning run from late
    August to late December laid City's
    platform for the runaway title victory,
    and it was only a matter of when it
    would be clinched.
    The 2012 title win had the infamous
    last-gasp goal by Sergio Aguero. Six
    years later, the finale was much more
    underwhelming, with Rodriguez
    nodding in from a corner to silence
    the majority of Old Trafford and set up
    one of the most surprising wins of the
    season.
    United manager Mourinho had long
    given up hopes of winning the title,
    instead focusing on finishing second.
    This result left his team one point clear
    of third-placed Liverpool, with a game
    in hand.
    As for City, it has a month to finish a
    season with the most points, goals and
    wins in a single Premier League
    campaign.
