Man City crowned champions after United defeat

Dutch midfielder Daley Blind arrives at Manchester United's Carrington complex

Manchester City won the Premier League title without even playing on Sunday when nearest challenger Manchester United surprisingly lost 1-0 at home to last-place West Bromwich Albion.

United pushed numbers forward in the closing stages, but Foster never really looked in danger of being tested again as United succumbed to a defeat that was celebrated by the blue half of Manchester with even more vigour than usual.

The Baggies are sitting at the base of the English Premier League table standings and will find it hard to stop a Manchester United side that is pushing to finish second in the league this year.

It's a happy ending to a disappointing week that saw them dumped out of the Champions League by Liverpool and blow a 2-0 lead in the Manchester derby that would have seen them claim the crown against their bitter rivals.

Russia, US need to promote dialogue through diplomacy: Russian FM
The Kremlin's ambassador to Beirut vowed that Russian forces would try to shoot down any U.S. missiles. Trump was apparently responding to a statement by Russia's ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin.

"Everyone is ideal, apart from Romero", said Mourinho in his press conference ahead of the game. "All the few players are ready to play", Mourinho confirmed to MUTV. United are looking to complete the league double over the Baggies for the first time since the 2011-12 season. The England midfielder's effort lacked venom, though, and was parried to safety by David de Gea.

In defence, Phil Jones and Daley Blind are back from injury after spending a significant amount of time out on the sidelines.

That would mean Antonio Valencia keeps his spot at right-back while veteran Englishman Ashley Young is likely to start on the left-side, with Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling likely to partner up at the heart of the Manchester United defence.

Manchester City would be crowned champions if the Red Devils is defeated in the game. Mourinho said: "I believe, like last week, they (West Brom) will be very compact with two lines of four and no space to play so Mata is one of the players who thinks fastest in my team". Romelu Lukaku scored a hat-trick for the Baggies in a 5-5 draw against United in 2013, which was Ferguson's last fixture in charge.
