The loss, coupled with City's victory over Spurs on Saturday, gave Pep Guardiola's team an insurmountable 16-point lead with five matches to play as Manchester City clinched their third Premier League title in seven years.

"Manchester City, we won it for you" chanted West Brom fans at full-time as United supporters began jeering in frustration at their side gift-wrapping the title for City.

City skipper Vincent Kompany has now won three Premier League titles since joining 10 years ago.

The Red Devils came into the fixture in high spirits, having beaten neighbours and champions-elect Manchester City 3-2 last week.

He said, after seeing a solitary effort from Jay Rodriguez down Jose Mourinho's men: "We are frustrated ourselves with the performance and what we have to do is think about the next game and keep going, because we have very important weeks ahead".

City were crowned champions with five games to spare after United lost 1-0 to bottom side West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford. I believe in myself.

"In my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency, you win titles with quality but you win titles with consistency at every level".

"I won too much to be happy with one big victory".

"The mental level, the day by day, everything must be consistent until the last day so one of the things we have to improve is consistency". "Everything was complicated. Players they didn't want to or couldn't play simple", Mourinho told SkyTV afterwards.

Four days on from reaching the Champions League last four for the first time in a decade, Liverpool moved ever closer to sealing their place back in the competition next season with a top-four finish thanks to a routine 3-0 win over Bournemouth.

In his second season in charge, Guardiola, aided by the vast financial backing of City's Abu Dhabi-based owners, has created a sublime team that helped him become the first Spanish coach to win the English top-flight title.
