Manchester City on verge of title, Salah on target for Liverpool

  • Daniel Sturridge could face United as West Brom vow to ‘keep fighting

Pep Guardiola is just the third manager to win the top-flight title in England and at least two of the other big five European leagues, after Carlo Ancelotti (3) and Jose Mourinho (2).

Jay Rodriguez bundled home the victor on a scramble off a corner kick in the 73rd minute, but for long portions of the match, United looked to be the same listless side with the ball that got predecessor Louis Van Gaal sacked before Mourinho took over ahead of the 2016-17 season.

City lost three successive games in which they were dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool and missed out on the chance to seal title glory against rivals Manchester United.

'I saw lots of people on the moon because we won against Manchester City.

The Baggies stunned the Red Devils courtesy of an opportunistic second half goal from striker Jay Rodriguez, thus confirming Manchester City's status as Premier League champions.

"You win titles with consistency at every level, not just the performance level but the mental level and the day by day". They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points.

United held out for a 1-0 victory at Old Trafford on December 13, riding Romelu Lukaku's 25th-minute goal to victory.

He also conceded it was sweet to triumph in a country where some critics claimed his purist principles couldn't flourish.

Few - including Guardiola - expected it to happen on Sunday.

"I know them, I smile".

In sealing the league at this stage, City matched the record for the earliest title win - held by United since 2001.

'The players didn't want to play simple.

He had gone 21 club games without a goal before his two against Manchester City; had he been a little more prolific, then perhaps the Premier League title race would have been significantly closer.

"I'll tell you what I told him after the match", Mourinho told reporters ahead of facing rock-bottom West Brom on Sunday, where an unlikely defeat would see City crowned champions. "As I was saying, eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues and the last Premier League was not 20 years ago, was three years ago", Mourinho was quoted as saying by Reuters. They've got a chance to be the first Premier League team to crack 100 points and are well on their way to grabbing 100 goals in league.

West Brom had lost eight of their previous nine games and last won on January 13. It's good for the Premier League as well.
