By completing the job after 33 games, City have emulated the achievement of United, who secured the crown with the same number of matches to spare in 2001.

This latest triumph represents City's third title in seven seasons and Pep Guardiola's seventh league title as a manager.

"Manchester City, we won it for you" chanted the West Brom fans at the end of a match greeted by jeers by the home faithful.

West Brom had lost eight of their previous nine games and last won on Jan 13.

United's forwards were kept at bay in the first-half and Ben Foster's breathtaking save to deny Romelu Lukaku gave the Baggies real belief in the 65th minute. The most United can now reach is 86.

Yet they still clinch the trophy with five games to spare - a joint-Premier League record - after dominating the division for most of the campaign.

It's been nearly inevitable for the whole of 2018 but Manchester City have today sealed the Premier League title without even kicking a ball on Sunday afternoon.

That could see Juan Mata recalled while Marcus Rashford may get the nod ahead of Anthony Martial amid rumours both players are becoming unsettled due to a lack of regular starts.

And while United's title dreams may have been over long before Sunday's game, yet again Mourinho has failed to build on the momentum of a big win against a rival. West Bromwich Albion West Brom have taken just two points from the last 30 available to them (D2, L8).

There were a few United half-chances before half-time, while a Dawson header back across goal from a corner was begging to be turned in by West Brom. United have won their last five league matches.

And though Foster won't be at the World Cup in June, he could yet be in the Premier League with a new club next season.

United, fresh off a win in the Manchester derby, will be looking to keep the momentum going despite the fact they have little to play for at this stage of the season.

The result puts Man City three points away from winning the title and they may well be champions before playing again next weekend if West Brom defeat United.
