City confirmed as champions as Baggies shock United

But the blues answered those questions in style and, even though City were fortunate with the penalty, they were deserved winners and now look to West to clinch the league for them.

Pep Guardiola revealed that he had no plans to watch United's clash with West Brom and would instead be on the golf course on Sunday afternoon.

With 87 points from 33 matches, City win their first Premier League title since 2013-14 under Manuel Pellegrini and their third in seven years since being bought by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008.

"I am surprised. The quality and experience of some of the players, the stability the squad, I am surprised they find themselves in this position", said Mourinho.

In his pre-match press conference on Friday, Mourinho told a journalist that he only needs four points to stay second and the derby win against Manchester City last week should set their hopes on course.

Top-ranked Shanshan Feng (71), third-ranked Inbee Park (72) and sixth-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn (69) tied for third at 7-under. She finished with a 6-under 66 at Ko Olina Golf Club - the day's low round - to get to 10 under.

It was Jay Rodriguez, whose goal from a Baggies corner, gave caretaker manager Darren Moore his first win as West Brom boss and hand the title to City in a far less dramatic way than their infamous Aguerooooooo goal.

Just days after the Football Association announced a charge of racially abusing Brighton's Gaetan Bong had been found "not proven", the forward netted to secure a victory which sends shockwaves around the league. Manchester City ended their three-match losing run with a convincing win over Tottenham at Wembley Stadium.

While still nine points from safety, it was an awesome end to a match that had started with Livermore showing composure that belied his role as a midfield enforcer as he cut away from Victor Lindelof to be denied by David De Gea.

Pep Guardiola's side are now uncatchable at the top of the table after United's shock defeat to the bottom-of-the-table Baggies after Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute strike sealed their fate. He is expected to start out on the right-side ahead of Juan Mata. Chris Smalling had an attempt as the clock wound down and the full-time whistle saw City crowned champions.
