Mata turns focus to FA Cup after miserable West Brom defeat

The 43-year-old may not have been a manager before, but he set West Brom up in the way that allowed them to go toe to toe with Manchester United and win 1-0 to deny Jose Mourinho's men the chance to prolong the title race beyond the weekend.

United prevented their cross-town rivals from securing league glory last week in the Manchester Derby with a dramatic 3-2 victory at the Etihad but suffered a 1-0 loss to bottom of the table West Bromwich Albion.

However, their 3-1 victory at Tottenham on Saturday put them on the brink of the title, and West Brom striker Jay Rodriguez's header confirmed their status as champions on Sunday.

The hosts threw everything at West Brom in the closing stages, but were unable to find a breakthrough that would have delayed City's title confirmation until at least Wednesday when United take on Bournemouth.

United finally settled and appealed for an 18th minute penalty when Herrera appeared to be up-ended by Craig Dawson.

Comey said he had "grave" misgivings about the Trump presidency even before it began. Comey testified before Congress Trump's quest for loyalty made him uncomfortable.

However, the United manager also gave a strong defence of his own record, listing some of his achievements with Chelsea, Real Madrid and Porto, after being asked how United could expect to overhaul Pep Guardiola's team next season.

How Manchester United Improve Now?

Jay Rodriguez is pleased to have helped West Bromwich Albion claim their first Premier League victory since January with his victor at Manchester United.

"Today's game, we've got a vital three points for us and it means so much for the football club as it does all the players".

"I saw lots of people [over] the moon because we won against City".

Well, Delhi Daredevil had a bad start and none of its batsmen stood for long other than Rishabh Pant (43) and Glenn Maxwell (47). Kolkata manged to score 50 runs in the powerplay, after Lynn's (31) recovery and Uthappa, who scored a brisk 35 from 19 balls.

After sacking Alan Pardew at the start of the month, Darren Moore has been handed the West Brom until the end of the season.

Pogba was substituted by Mourinho in the 58th minute and the player departed proceedings with an air of resignation rather than annoyance at the decision.

Mourinho's side twice came close through Romelu Lukaku but they scarcely threatened the Baggies over the course of a turgid 90 minutes.

Mourinho was asked whether he took off Pogba because he had a yellow card and was at risk of getting sent off. "Today was a very bad day and we need to move on". "They won because they were the best team and lost only a few points". "I have no reason not to - eight titles and three Premier Leagues and the last Premier League was not 20 years ago". It was a slow game and we didn't play well at all. At last, Manchester City's players can enjoy a serene Premier League title triumph, winning the title without even playing.
