Man United 0-1 West Brom: Baggies hand PL title to Guardiola


Manchester United will go head to head against bottom feeders West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford on Sunday.

There are no major shocks in the starting line up for United with Martial, Lingard and Rashford all on the bench.

Jose Mourinho has faith in his high-profile duo, but the Manchester United manager could do better picking some of his less well-known squad members.

Despite the win for West Brom the layers remain convinced that they will be relegated to the Championship with no one willing to offer the minimum odds of [1.01] in the Relegation market.

Guardiola failed to win a trophy during his first season in English football but has now added the Premier League to the EFL Cup crown collected against Arsenal in February.

Manchester United are best of the rest in the Premier League this season behind Manchester City, scoring 63 goals so far in 2017/18. However, the plucky visitors then sensationally seized their chance when Chris Brunt delivered a corner from the right with 17 minutes remaining.

In the reasons explaining its verdict, the FA said the "essential issue for us boiled down to one question - are we satisfied the player [Rodriguez] probably said to GB [Gaetan Bong]: "You're black and you stink'? Hopefully we can celebrate with our fans against Swansea and be champions because they deserve it".

"It's the type of squaring up that you might laugh about with the other player later in the game". That's how I think.

But even they never looked like throwing away the a title that has been deserved ever since they drew with Everton at the end of August when Manchester United were still level with them.

Rodriguez, who has played for England, denied the charge and requested a personal hearing which took place at the FA's headquarters at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday.

West Brom director of football administration Richard Garlick said: "Everyone at the Club is delighted for Jay because this has been a trying period for him".

In truth, that race was over a long time ago and it was a matter of time before City sealed the title.
