English Premier League: Manchester City win the 2017-18 Premier League title

Manchester City have been crowned Premier League champions after their rivals Manchester United slumped to a shock 1-0 home loss to struggling West Brom on Sunday.

United suffered a 1-0 defeat to West Brom on Sunday evening - a result which handed City the Premier League title.

Jose Mourinho only mentioned that he'd won eight championships and three Premier League titles six times in his post-match press conference.

"They were the right ones and the ones we believed in, I'm sure there are differences to how we play today compared to Bayern (Munich) and Barcelona, we survive and live by the strength of the team".

"These players deserve all my respect because they have been unbelievable all season".

This shouldn't shadow what has been a fantastic season for City, with many fantastic wins helping them on their way to the title.

More importantly, though, it means Pep Guardiola's City team can not now be caught at the top of the table, thus handing the Catalan coach his first Premier League crown in just his second year in English football.

Tottenham hadn't lost in the Premier League since the sides last met in December, but in truth were lucky to escape without a much more severe beating.

But just a week after his world-class performance against Man City, Pogba had a poor game in Man United's clash with West Bromwich Albion.

Instead of City likely clinching the title at home to Swansea next weekend, that game at Etihad Stadium will now be a party and a celebration of one of the Premier League's finest teams which could yet break a slew of records by the end of the season.

5 - City match the English top-flight record by claiming the title with five games to spare, equalling the efforts of United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85).

Guardiola's side have only dropped points against Burnley and United since the New Year, while marching into an explosive Champions League quarter-final with Liverpool that saw them knocked out earlier this month.

"I have won titles, I would not be happy if someone said I won title because someone lost a match". "We have spent a lot of money to have these unbelievable players, to make that possible".

I've never been able to retain the title so I want to see if this team has got it in them to carry on and be even more successful.

Yet all that brilliance came after an opening 45 minutes that had been more typical of his club form this season; out of sorts, misplacing passes and lacking in verve.
