Manchester City crowned champions as United crash

Guardiola was sent to the stands for arguing with the referee as the half-time whistle blew

Manchester City were confirmed as Premier League champions on Sunday (April 15) as second-placed Manchester United suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat by bottom club West Bromwich Albion.

Vincent Kompany delivered an emotionally charged speech to Manchester City fans and players after the club's title triumph.

It is ironic that United came back from 2-0 down against City themselves last weekend to win 3-2 and delay City's party, only to surrender so tamely on home soil.

City will now be looking to break the Premier League points record in their remaining five fixtures.

Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry on Sky Sports: They deserve to be champions, I am sure they would have liked to do it against Swansea but now they can play against Swansea with a happier smile on their face because they all know they're champions and they deserve it.

But Jay Rodriguez's 73rd minute header gave West Brom a stunning victory after they arrived at Old Trafford having lost nine of their previous 10 games. "But do not tell City they won title because United did not win, it is not fair on them".

"It's more complicated. But I think for the club, not just the players, all the departments in the club can believe".

Congress sources said in Rae Bareli, Rahul would interact with the locals and party workers, and attend some social events too. It was played in the presence of senior BJP leader and Union HRD minister Prakash Javadekar and Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari.

"I've never been able to retain the title so I want to see if this team has got it in them to carry on and be even more successful".

Fuelled by the majestic form of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, City set a new Premier League record earlier this season by winning 18 successive matches.

"I had a feeling when I woke up this morning but it's a different experience when you're waiting for a team to lose". The current domestic season has been nothing short of phenomenal for Pep Guardiola's men as they have broken record after record since the beginning of the campaign and still looks strong to break several other long-standing Premier League records.

"The first one was special but this one is perhaps the one I'm most proud of".

It was a far cry from his trophy-less first season with City and Kompany said Guardiola's tenacious attitude led them to the summit. "We conceded goals but the most important detail is not the goal you concede but the chances you concede and in every game it was few and [while] playing so offensively".

'We needed a period of adaptation...his methods were the right ones, we believed in him.
