"It's one of the best by far".

Along the way, they beat Liverpool 5-0, Watford 6-0, Crystal Palace 5-0, Stoke City 7-2, Arsenal 3-1, Manchester United 2-1, Swansea City 4-0, Tottenham Hotspur 4-1 and Bournemouth 4-0 before eventually drawing 0-0 with Palace on New Year's Eve.

"The feat was also achieved in the 1936-37, 1967-68, 2011-12 and 2013-14 campaigns". But the travelling fans will welcome the reward for their dedication.

He's the first Spanish director to gain against the Premier League title. There was disappointment, joy, excitement, aggression, everything.

While City's eye-catching style of play has had the purists purring, Pep Guardiola's men also have a ruthless side that has served them well in their toughest tests. It is hard to imagine City's players and Guardiola being too bothered by that, though.

"But the Premier League is one of the nicest and most important". "We're going to Shrewsbury", they sang early in the game.

Despite the win, West Brom remain bottom on 24 points with four games left to play. Jesus and a Ilkay Gundogan penalty put City deservedly 2-0 up inside half an hour.

"This title was not the last-minute miracle of 2012, or the last-day drama of 2014 but rather a serene glide to glory".

No attempts on goal whatsoever, and while his relentless strides at ensuring the game remained creative and the attacking presence were constant, it wasn't at all working.

"I'm proud for players and staff and way they have acquitted themselves today". It is clear that this squad of players is not good enough to adhere to the modus operandi of their manager, which is do to just enough to win.

'WE DESERVED TO BE PUNISHED' "I think we were deservedly punished because we were masters in complication". Facing champions Chelsea was a chance to send a message to their challengers and City were up to the task. But he still let on too many errors, one, in particular, that could have ended in a goal.

"We deserve to be punished, but the defeat was too heavy".

After falling apart last weekend at Old Trafford, City needed a win over Spurs to have a chance to clinch this weekend.

Manchester United lose to the worst team in the Premier League, gifting their rivals Manchester City the 2017-18 Premier League title.

West Brom had lost eight of their previous nine games and last won on Jan. 13. They can surpass Chelsea's Premier League record of 30 (2016-17) by winning three of their remaining five fixtures.
