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

The Citizens fell just a day short of the record for the swiftest title win in history, achieved by Manchester United on April 14, 2001.

"An incredible 18-match winning streak, running from August to New Year's Eve, saw City surge away from the opposition and take a grip on the table that never loosened".

Manchester City have been confirmed as Premier League champions as neighbours United lost at home to West Brom on a dramatic weekend in the Premier League.

5 - City match the English top-flight record by claiming the title with five games to spare, equalling the efforts of United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85).

City manager Pep Guardiola might have missed one of the proudest moments of his career, however, after admitting on Saturday that he had a round of golf booked with his son and was not planning to watch United's game.

" We did it all in the way we desired todo", Guardiola explained on Saturday in Wembley.

Chris Smalling almost grabbed an equaliser for United in two minutes of added time but his header was held by Foster.

United was too narrow and predictable, with wide players Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata constantly cutting inside and leaving the midfield congested. He was hoodwinked by last week's game.

Instead, the title was decided on a wet Sunday afternoon when the new champions were not playing. He rarely stopped running throughout the game and was eager to get stuck into tackles. A win from this game may do their survival chances no realistic help but it would theoretically do his chances of getting the job on a permanent basis all the good in the world. Physicality, weather conditions, the amount of games. After that, West Brom used up the final half hour and got the win.

West Brom's former United keeper Ben Foster dealt with the few real efforts that came from United's attack - keeping out a close-range strike from Romelu Lukaku in the 19th minute and then a header from the Belgian in the 66th. "We have spent plenty of dollars to possess those people, to make that potential".

Look at West Brom, the worst team in the league by a distance this season, who demonstrated what can happen when you show better commitment and energy levels.

"It's more difficult (to win in England)".

Caretaker boss Darren Moore is a popular figure at Albion and has quickly introduced the kind of togetherness and organisation so stark by its absence under Alan Pardew, who was sacked at the beginning of the month.
