United's best chance of the game was a Romelu Lukaku header, which was superbly saved by Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster. Manchester City have been a cut above the rest all season, and now they are confirmed as the best team in the Premier League.

Mourinho and United still has a chance of wining a trophy this season - the FA Cup - and on Saturday face Spurs at Wembley stadium in the semifinals of the tournament.

"Manchester City, we won it for you", chanted the West Brom fans at the end of a match greeted by jeers by United supporters. In the 18th minute, Craig Dawson took down Ander Herrera in the box.

United had to at least draw to keep the title race mathematically alive but were stunned at Old Trafford when Jay Rodriguez headed home after the break. But the travelling fans will welcome the reward for their dedication.

Three points on West Brom's 1-0 win vs. Manchester United in the Premier League, a result that confirms Manchester City as champions. His next game against Liverpool will be as a Premier League winner.

While City's eye-catching style of play has had the purists purring, Pep Guardiola's men also have a ruthless side that has served them well in their toughest tests.

Manchester City have became the Premier League champions.

Few - including Guardiola - expected it to happen on Sunday. Those post-Ferguson results against this very opponent reveal something concerning about the general attitude of most of these players - the players who have been there throughout and the players who have adopted that general attitude that coasting is acceptable.

"It's more difficult (to win in England)". The lack of leadership and organisation was horrific.

David De Gea - 4/10, 10/10 He was at fault for the second City goal to begin with.

United manager Jose Mourinho had long given up hopes of winning the title, instead focusing on finishing second. But Mourinho's team produced a stunning comeback to win the game 3-2 and put their rival's celebrations on hold. Tried heading the ball on great occasions, but was denied by a superb goalkeeping performance.

"We asked a lot of questions, but everyone worked hard and did their jobs".

"I'm proud for players and staff and way they have acquitted themselves today". "The big players you realise (who they are) in the bad moments, the bad moments in terms of 75 minutes, (if) we are losing, how you react in that situation".

'WE DESERVED TO BE PUNISHED' "I think we were deservedly punished because we were masters in complication".

On April 7, City played United and leading 2-0 at halftime had looked on course to claim the title.

West Brom became the first team to win a game at Old Trafford, having started the day bottom of the league, since Blackburn in 2011.

West Brom had lost eight of their previous nine games and last won on Jan. 13.

Moore has led Albion to four points in his two games as caretaker boss - the same tally of points Alan Pardew secured in his final 11 league games in charge.

The introduction of Jesse Lingard gave United a much-needed boost, and the hosts improved as the half wore on.
