Manchester United 0-1 West Bromwich Albion

Manchester United 0-1 West Bromwich Albion

"The amount of goals, chances and points, to do that in the Premier League, with the contenders we have, is because the players are so good".

City extended their lead to 16 points after beating Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 on Saturday and United's defeat means that, with five games still to play, the gap is unassailable.

However, a very first Premier League title, to proceed along with the 3 La Liga titles he won since the 3 Bundesliga titles he shipped for Bayern Munich and director of Barcelona, will soon be satisfying.

On April 7, City played United and leading 2-0 at halftime had looked on course to claim the title.

Mourinho's team have a league game at Bournemouth on Wednesday before their FA Cup semifinal with Tottenham at Wembley next Saturday.

United was too narrow and predictable, with wide players Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata constantly cutting inside and leaving the midfield congested.

Ryan retirement roils GOP, opens speaker seat
Ryan, who has had a hard relationship with Trump, thanked the president for giving him the chance to move the GOP ahead. Unemployment is at an all-time low, the tax burden is the lowest it has been in decades, and our schools remain strong.


But you wouldn't have guessed it with the way Mourinho set his side out on Sunday afternoon, at Old Trafford no less.

It is City's third title in seven seasons and a first under the Spaniard in his second campaign in charge.

This result will not have any significant effect on the league table beyond placing the title in City's hands.

Jose Mourinho has built a reputation for getting under the skin of opposition managers but the United boss was not up to his old tricks on Sunday.

The win was West Brom's first since a 2-0 success over Brighton on 12 January and only their fourth all season.

But after Sunday's post-match tweet, United fans will be celebrating if and when the Baggies' relegation is confirmed.

Wolves promoted to Premier League after Fulham held
Speaking on Sky Sports News, Dalrymple added: "He's a superb tactician, he's a superb strategist and he's a superb man-manager". Mendes represents Nuno, Wolves boss since last May, and star players Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota and Ivan Cavaleiro.


The pinnacle of Arsene Wenger's Arsenal reign remains the "Invincibles" - only the second team to go through an English top-flight season without losing a single game after Preston's unbeaten feat in 1889.

Mourinho greeted West Brom caretaker manager Darren Moore with a warm hug after the two teams had made their way onto the pitch.

Sunderland, who finished bottom of the Premier League last season, are now bottom of the Championship and staring at a future in League One alongside the likes of Fleetwood and Gillingham.

West Brom became the first team to win a game at Old Trafford, having started the day bottom of the league, since Blackburn in 2011.

Albion secured the win thanks to a Jay Rodriguez header from Chris Brunt's corner as the home side failed to clear their lines. It is nearly certainly too little too late for West Brom, who look doomed to relegation.

Trump puts off Syria strike decision, will talk to allies
