Manchester City win Premier League title as rivals United lose

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho leaves the pitch after the final whistle of the English Premier League soccer match against West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford Manchester England Sunday

As sweet as such a triumph would have been - United's 3-2 win, after being 2-0 down, denied their neighbours the title that day - the emphasis placed on being crowned champions by defeating their bitter rivals might just have overshadowed the true magnitude of City's third domestic championship in six years.

The 32-year-old had to watch on from home as a goal from West Brom's Jay Rodriguez against Manchester United handed City the title on Sunday, with the defender then joining a handful of his teammates for celebrations after the game at Old Trafford.

More importantly, though, it means Pep Guardiola's City team can not now be caught at the top of the table, thus handing the Catalan coach his first Premier League crown in just his second year in English football.

"They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points".

Ederson has also made some crucial saves, such as the last-gasp penalty stop at Crystal Palace in December, as well making a significant improvement in the save percentage department - contributions that can make all the difference in a title race.

"We did it! An wonderful journey to get here".

He was on the 17th green at Cheshire's Mottram Hall club when someone screeched to a halt and jumped out of a vehicle to reveal that the only challengers, Aston Villa, had lost to Oldham and United had won the title at last. I want to see how we react now next season.

Manchester City take title as United crash to West Brom
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. I suppose my team-mates will roll their eyes a little bit but I kind of want to see what the reaction is now.

"We are delighted to have done so providing our supporters with some very exciting and unforgettable moments. One of the things we have to improve is our consistency".

After sacking Alan Pardew at the start of the month, Darren Moore has been handed the West Brom until the end of the season.

He also conceded it was sweet to triumph in a country where some critics claimed his purist principles couldn't flourish.

In the midst of winning four titles in five years, this was an increasingly sophisticated United side, reflecting Ferguson's desire to thrive in Europe as well on domestic soil. By completing the job after 33 matches, City have emulated United, who secured the crown with the same number of games to spare in 2001.

'Against Tottenham [the players] showed me how strong they were.

Fuelled by the majestic form of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and company, City have sent records tumbling, including notching an incredible 18 successive top-flight wins.

"Manchester City is not like [Manchester] United or Chelsea - the big clubs in England have trophies and a lot of history behind them".

Winning the title by two points from Chelsea, in the Champions League United saw off Barcelona in the semi-finals and, in the final, beat Chelsea on penalties in the Moscow rain.
