West Brom had the best reaction to today's game on social media

Manchester

Jose Mourinho's men had deliciously put the brakes on Manchester City's crowning as the 2017/18 Premier League champions last Saturday at the Etihad Stadium but, against the nearly doomed Albion, they handed the title to the Blues, with Jay Rodriguez scoring the victor.

Manchester City would have been crowned champion last weekend if they had beaten Jose Mourinho's men in the Manchester derby; but they blew off a two-goal lead and were beaten 3-2.

But, just a week after spoiling City's title party by beating their local rivals 3-2 at the Etihad, the way United abjectly gifted the title to their neighbours will sting.

Jay Rodriguez has expressed his delight as West Bromwich Albion claimed their first Premier League win since January, a 1-0 victory at Manchester United.

United had to at least draw to keep the title race mathematically alive but were stunned at Old Trafford when Jay Rodriguez headed home after the break.

United have 71 also with five to play.

Newcastle virtually assured its Premier League status for another season by coming from behind to beat a depleted Arsenal side 2-1 thanks to Matt Ritchie's second-half victor on Sunday.

"Today's game, we've got a vital three points for us and it means so much for the football club as it does all the players".

"I saw lots of people on the moon because we won against City".

After sacking Alan Pardew at the start of the month, Darren Moore has been handed the West Brom until the end of the season.

United dominated possession early on, but despite the efforts of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, precious little real impact was made by the home side.

"Paul had a yellow card and Paul's game was complicated like many others".

City originally had the chance to win the league against United last week but a win for the Red Devils only delayed the inevitable by eight days. "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".

United's limp display irked Mourinho and the manager said overconfidence was key in allowing the beleaguered Baggies to secure just their fourth league win of a terrible Premier League campaign. It was a slow game and we didn't play well at all.

They won it in the last remaining seconds in 2012, and in the final match in 2014. I wouldn't be happy if someone says that I won the title because somebody loses a match. I think with my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency.
