City crowned Premier League champions after United beaten

Manchester City were confirmed as Premier League champions when arch-rivals Manchester United suffered a surprise 1-0 home defeat by West Bromwich Albion.

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.

With five games to go City, who beat Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, have 87 points to the 71 of second-placed United.

It is their first league title since 2014 and their first under former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola.
