Man City trolled on Twitter after Premier League win

Man City trolled on Twitter after Premier League win

City's supporters are now discovering that winning the title without even playing, courtesy of West Bromwich Albion's unexpected 1-0 victory at Old Trafford on Sunday, does nothing to diminish the joy of planting your flag at the summit while the rest look on enviously below you. That's Liverpooling more than Liverpool have ever Liverpooled this season.

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.

United delayed City's title celebrations by winning last week's derby at the Etihad Stadium but Mourinho admitted that victory had a hollow feel.

City need just nine points from their final games to set a new record for most Premier League points, while another 11 goals would see them set a new goal-scoring record.

Right-back Kyle Walker, who joined Man City last summer, said: "We did it!"

"City won the title because they won more points than everyone else, don't tell City they won title because United did not win, it is not fair on them". City skipper Vincent Kompany has now won three Premier League titles since joining 10 years ago.

Only time will tell how good this City team is, and whether they are the best we have ever seen in the Premier League, but one thing that can not be denied is that they are the best we have right now - and by some distance.

United's afternoon was symptomatic of their entire season.

United knew heading into this game that if they were to lose, their near neighbours Manchester City would officially become champions of the 2017/18 Premier League.

Meanwhile, the Defense Ministry in a statement said Russian military bases in Syria had not been affected by the joint strike. Britain has accused Russian Federation of poisoning them with a Soviet-designed agent, an accusation that Moscow denies.

City are 16 points clear of second placed United, who can only take a maximum of 15 points from their remaining matches.

Mourinho pulled no punches about his squad's lack of consistency, but the former Chelsea boss made it clear he believes he can return United to the summit of English football.

"I trust in my work, that is for sure, I have no reason not to trust".

It was Arsenal's fifth consecutive away defeat in the Premier League.

"I don't know if I was the first or second or third but I congratulated them face to face when I had chance to do it".

"You do not win titles with inconsistency, you win with quality".

"Everything must be consistent until the last day".

Pogba was presented with two opportunities in the closing stages of the first half, but failed to hit the target on either occasion.

Romelu Lukaku was twice denied by smart saves from Ben Foster, while Jesse Lingard also came close after his introduction from the bench at half-time.
