But with City so far clear at the top of the table it was a question of when and not if their coronation would be confirmed, especially after a 3-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday put them on the brink.

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.

The first real scoring chance of the game fell to West Brom in the 12 minute when Jake Livermore broke into the box, but he was thwarted by David de Gea from close range. It's a tall order as West Brom have just one away win in the Premier League all season, however in 1995, City went to Ewood Park to face title-chasing Blackburn. They are in the relegation zone and are more likely to be one of the three clubs to be dropped to the Championship.

The 28-year-old had been accused of using "abusive and/or insulting words which included a reference to ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race" towards Brighton and Hove Albion's Gaetan Bong during the Baggies' 2-0 win in January.

He said the agreement would "undermine" the US economy and its independence and said it was a potential "disaster". But the damage was limited , and a defiant Assad returned to episodic use of chlorine and perhaps other chemicals.


Someone text Pep Guardiola the news because the Manchester City manager is somewhere on a golf course blissfully unaware that his side are Premier League champions for just the third time. That's how I think. I know what to do, I know where to do it and I don't fear anything.

"I am surprised. The quality and experience of some of the players, the stability the squad, I am surprised they find themselves in this position", said Mourinho.

Pep Guardiola has now won three league titles in three different countries, Spain with Barcelona, Germany with Bayern Munich and England with Manchester City.

The City manager's decision to forego the match looked justified considering West Brom's awful form, although Jake Livermore's early attempt was a warning shot that undercooked United failed to heed. And by the performance yesterday, they will achieve it in style and break some more records in the process.
