CHAMPIONS: West Brom Stun United To Hand EPL Title To Man City

City had registered a 3-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Saturday.

With the triumph, City have become a three-time Premier League winners - a feat they are achieving in seven seasons.

Manchester United struggled to cut through Albion's compact defence and when they did found an equal in former goalkeeper Ben Foster, who blocked from Romelu Lukaku at point-blank range and kept out Alexis Sanchez's follow-up with his legs. Great job guys. Our effort, hard work and dedication paid off. Thank you to all the fans for your unconditional support!

United now occupy second place in the table but are 16 points adrift of top spot and Mourinho insists greater consistency is required if his charges have designs on wrestling City's crown from their clutches next season. He also said that it would be unfair to put too much emphasis on United's loss.

Manchester City won the Premier League title Sunday, after West Bromwich Albion beat Manchester United.

Jay Rodriguez found the net for the Baggies in the 73rd minute with a close-range header from a few yards out after Nemanja Matic headed the ball into his path following a corner, 0-1.

Many expected the Etihad side to claim the prize last season after appointing Pep Guardiola, but they found themselves usurped by Antonio Conte's Chelsea, who have been rather subdued this time around and look very likely to finish outside of the top four.

After 33 rounds of matches, Pep Guardiola-coached Man City have 87 points, while Man United have 71 points.

'We were deservedly punished, ' Mourinho said.

City have won the title with five games remaining, equalling the record set by United in the 2000-01 campaign.

"It is just football, we can not have just 11 players".

"You can't take (winning the league) for granted, I've won three now but there's so many we've missed", he said.

"I don't know if I was the first or second or third but I congratulated them face to face when I had the chance", Mourinho said.

Following the 20-time English champions shock defeat at home, the Portuguese tactician revealed he trusts in his ability to lead sides to Premier League glory but maintained it can not be achieved without consistent efforts from the team.

He added: "They won the title because they were the best team".

West Brom are bottom of the standings with 21 points and in danger of dropping to the Championship.
