Manchester City win their 5th title with 4 games remaining as Manchester United suffered a home defeat against bottom club West Bromwich Albion this afternoon at Old Trafford. Jay Rodriguez’s late strike secured a vital win in their race to avoid the relegation.
Former Southampton, Blackburn and Newcastle striker Alan Shearer said after the game: “Man City have been the best team by an absolute mile – the points tell you that. They’ve played some brilliant stuff all season, they’ve been magnificent in the league, congratulations to them. Pep will enjoy the 19th hole today I’m sure.”
Chelsea, who lifted the title on 12th of May last year, remain 17 points behind the newly-crowned Premier League champions. Man City have equalled an English league record as only Manchester United in 1907/08 and 2000/01 campaigns and Everton in 1984/85 succeeded in winning the title with 4 games still to go.
