Manchester United stunned by West Brom, City crowned EPL champions

Pogba's stats this season compare unfavourably with Philippe Coutinho at Liverpool Pogba's stats this season compare unfavourably with Philippe Coutinho at Liverpool

The loss to West Brom only highlights the inconsistency.

Jay Rodriguez scored a second-half victor to beat a woeful Manchester United and hand a third Premier League title to Manchester City. However, United had chances as well.

The players and the staff put a real shift in and there is real belief at the club.

In the first half, Mata almost found his way towards an early goal.

This was a great example of what is a big issue for Manchester United. They defended tight and conceded possession to United, two things that wouldn't be surprising when a lower league team faces a top team. Manchester United looked the stronger passing team, but West Brom relied heavily on counter attacks. After that, West Brom used up the final half hour and got the win.

Despite last week's incredible come-from-behind victory, United are still expected to miss out on the title to their city rivals.

It might have been different had Ben Foster not made fine saves from Romelu Lukaku either side of half-time; a diving stop to deny the Belgian striker's header from a Nemanja Matic cross was particularly impressive. You could nearly hear City fans going wild down the road.

United midfielder Nemanja Matic had headed a corner across his own goal area and Rodriguez reacted quickly to nod home the victor. Manchester United simply got unlucky. They've been by far the best team in the league.

West Brom remain nine points adrift of safety with just four games remaining and seem unlikely to stave off relegation, but caretaker boss Darren Moore was pleased with their efforts.

Manchester United fell to West Bromwich Albion 1-0.

So in a way, after not being able to clinch the title last week against Manchester United and getting eliminated in the Champions League by Liverpool, clinching the Premier League without playing will seem bittersweet. For the most part, the season is over, but a second place finish must happen for Jose Mourinho.
