Manchester United on Sunday evening lost by a lone goal to relegation-bound West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford to hand the league title to their city rival, Manchester City.
United had denied their ‘noisy neighbours’ the title last week at the Etihad Stadium after coming from two goals down to win 2-3 in an intense match.
The Jose Mourinho men had needed a win over the Baggies to delay City’s title party for another week, but the abysmal performance put up by the red side of Manchester ensured that the blue side of the city are crowned champions of England again with five games left.
Jay Rodriguez put West Brom ahead in the 73rd minute from a corner kick to give the visitors 24 points from 34 matches.
Manchester United tried to get something from the match but their efforts were futile.
Manchester City are now champions of the English Premier League for the 2017/2018 season. They are presently on 87 points and if Man U win all their remaining games, they cannot go beyond 86 points. They are presently on 71 points with five matches remaining.
