Jose Mourinho's side had kept the title race just about alive with a dramatic 3-2 derby win in their previous game, but a dismal performance against the league's bottom club means they can not now finish higher than second place.

City were hoping to become champions next Sunday if they win Swansea City at the Etihad, but with United's defeat at home to West Brom, the trophy came early.

Manchester United are now in second place in the Premier League table and looking set to finish as runners-up to Pep Guardiola's men this season.

He dismissed talks of being carried away following last weekend's derby win against Manchester City.

"Everything was one more touch, one more flick, one more pass, one more touch", Mounrinho added.

But a first Premier League title, to go with the three La Liga titles he won as manager of Barcelona and the three Bundesliga titles he delivered for Bayern Munich, will be particularly satisfying.

"He annoys me, because I know he's capable of a hundred times more", said Christophe Dugarry, a striker in France's 1998 World Cup-winning side, this week.

As for City, it has a month to finish a season with the most points, goals and wins in a single Premier League campaign. "Everything was complicated. Players they didn't want to or couldn't play simple", Mourinho told SkyTV afterwards.

"We always gave them the opportunity to be solid, compact, together with huge physical strong players, they always had time to organise themselves".

City rebounded from the United loss and a European exit at the hands of Liverpool by beating Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, and have 87 points with five games left.

Henry, who implored him to emulate his City performance on a more consistent basis, said that such displays prove he can not.

"You need consistency at every level". "I knew that sooner or later that would be, and if I was in their position I would be very upset (if) someone said they won the league because Man United lost against West Bromwich Albion".

But Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino admitted that they deserved to get nothing from the City game.
