Man City crowned champs after United falter
LONDON: A week later than they would have preferred, Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions on Sunday as second-placed Manchester United suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat by bottom club West Bromwich Albion. United had to at least draw to keep the title race mathematically alive but they were stunned at Old Trafford when Jay Rodriguez headed home after the break.City manager Pep Guardiola might have missed one of the proudest moments of his career, however, after admitting on Saturday that he had a round of golf booked with his son and was not planning to watch United’s game.He would have been as surprised as everyone else that the title, seemingly a foregone conclusion for months, was rubber-stamped in such strange circumstances.A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in perfect style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate.West Brom had lost eight of their previous nine games and last won in January. “We’ve won the league for you, Man City, Man City,” West Brom’s fans chanted after the final whistle.
PSG win title
Monaco: Paris Saint-Germain won the French league title after beating defending champions Monaco 7-1 on Sunday, with the crushing victory highlighting the obvious gulf between the two teams this season.
