Manchester City Clinches Premier League Title

Manchester City fans were taken by surprise yesterday when Manchester United handed them the league title by losing 1-0 at home to bottom club West Brom. A loss to City in the Manchester derby last week would have seen United concede the league in the worst fashion possible, but the Red Devils rallied from two goals down to win 3-2.

Kompany, whose return to regular fitness has been a key factor in City's success this season, said there could be no talk of domination after they won a first league title since 2014.

We need a superstar to get through that door. Albion had other ideas and in one of the Premier League shocks of the season they beat their hosts 1-0 thanks to a second-half goal from Jay Rodriguez.

178: With a goal against Napoli in a 4-2 win in Champions League play, Sergio Aguero became Manchester City's all-time leading scorer, surpassing Eric Brook.

Guardiola's side have led the way for nearly all of the season, boasting a sizeable lead since beating United at Old Trafford in December. After completing a year-long sabbatical, he returned to action by managing Bayern Munich where he won the Bundesliga League Title three times.

Konoplyanka's effort proved a sighter as he hammered Schalke in front in the 50th minute. And Naldo drove in from 25 yards after a short free-kick to secure the win.

Meanwhile Mourinho was left counting the cost of an insipid display by his team.

Their squad is crammed full of wonderfully potent performers such as Juan Mata, Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, yet the Premier League table, which shows them 16 points behind City, does not lie. Between now and the end of the season, you'd expect that total, along with Chelsea's record of 103 in 2010, is well within Guardiola's sights.

Though their African stars, Ivory Coast's Yaya Toure and Senegal's Benjamin Mendy, did not play as much as they would have liked to, their talents, combined with the sublime Kevin de Bruyne, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and captain Vincent Company, have ensured City can not be overtaken, with five games to play this season.

City now boast an away points total of 44 following their 14 wins, two draws and one defeat - the famous 4-3 thriller at Anfield in January.

Phil McNulty, BBC: "Guardiola, as we have seen, has reshaped Manchester City and has them playing in his own image and likeness".

Much of the blame for Guardiola's first-season struggles was pinned on a series of errors from Claudio Bravo, brought from Barcelona to replace the ostracised Joe Hart.
