Thierry Henry's 'weird' prediction during West Brom defeat

Thierry Henry's 'weird' prediction during West Brom defeat

City clinched the title without even playing yesterday, when United, their nearest challenger, surprisingly lost 1-0 at home to last-place West Bromwich Albion.

United delayed City's coronation as league champions when they came from two-goal down to win 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

Guardiola, speaking after Saturday's 3-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley, declared his own satisfaction at the superb efforts of his squad this term.

"Manchester City, we won it for you" chanted West Brom fans at full-time as United supporters began jeering in frustration at their side gift-wrapping the title for City.

Jose Mourinho's men should have had a first-half penalty after Craig Dawson caught Ander Herrera, but complacency seeped in and the Baggies showed fight under caretaker boss Darren Moore that has been sorely lacking this season.

Newcastle virtually assured its Premier League status for another season by coming from behind to beat a depleted Arsenal side 2-1 thanks to Matt Ritchie's second-half victor on Sunday.

Mourinho called his players the "masters of complicated football" but that was being generous after one of the more startling displays of his two years in charge.

He said: "We've got faith in one another, the players, the staff. Things have gone a bit by the wayside this year. That's the point. We play for us, not Manchester City".

West Brom is still nine points from safety and looks destined for relegation.

City were knocked out of the Champions League on Tuesday after their quarter-final defeat by Liverpool, and were beaten by League one side Wigan in the fifth round of the FA Cup in February.

An unlikely win for Manchester United over their derby rivals, having been 2-0 down at the break, prolonged the inevitable.

Mourinho also admitted his doubts over Pogba after the match: 'Paul had a yellow card and had a situation where he may have had another booking. Now they were wandering around like zombies, drenched in a Mancunian downpour, losing against the worst team in the league.

"As soon as the game started, something was weird", the former Arsenal striker told Sky Sports. "It's one of those days that we didn't play good enough and we tried to create some chances in the first half and in the beginning of the second, but we didn't play quickly enough".

"I have no reason not to trust - eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues".
