But Jay Rodriguez's close-range header earned the league's bottom side a famous 1-0 win at Old Trafford, handing the title to City.

A week after preventing its neighbors from clinching the title in front of their own fans by rallying from 2-0 down to win 3-2, United delivered a similarly unlikely result as managerless West Brom pulled off one of the shocks of the season.

As City wrapped up the Premier League without having to kick a ball, here are five things we learned.

Manchester City ended their three-match losing run with a convincing win over Tottenham at Wembley Stadium.

Because of our win, City will no longer have the earliest title win, most points accumulated or a double over Manchester United.

Mourinho said his players were "masters in complicated football".

Manchester City's swaggering march to the title has seen Pep Guardiola's side hailed as one of the finest teams in the Premier League era.

In the first half, United's players created just two chances to West Brom's four which prompted Mourinho to bring Lingard on for Ander Herrera and half-time and the Red Devils immediately looked more threatening on the attack - albeit with no reward.

West Brom had lost eight of their previous nine games and last won on 13 January.

But his best moment of the match came to stop Lukaku from opening the scoring after an hour, getting down low to push Lukaku's header wide of the goal and keep his side in the match.

José Mourinho's United was at home to West Bromwich Albion, rooted to the foot of the table, all but assured of relegation, and coming to the end of a season in which it has fired two managers, a chairman, a chief executive and a director of football.

"We didn't want or played simple, everything was slow, one more flick, trick, turn".

David De Gea - 4/10, 10/10 He was at fault for the second City goal to begin with. It was a set piece and a lovely goal from Rodriguez so thank you.

If Moore was able to coax such a performance out of these players, then what could he, or an alternative choice, have done with more time?

West Brom caretaker boss Darren Moore: "We played against a really formidable team today, asked a lot of questions, but everyone worked hard and did their jobs".

"We deserve top be punished, but the defeat was too heavy". "Premier League Champions 17/18", City tweeted soon after the final whistle, when the fifth English top-flight title of its history was assured.

The English forward headed home in the 73rd minute to seal a stunning victory at Old Trafford for the Premier League's bottom club.
