Manchester City have won the Premier League title after second-place Manchester United were stunned 1-0 at home by West Bromwich Albion.

Pep Guardiola's side are now uncatchable at the top of the table after United's shock defeat to the bottom-of-the-table Baggies after Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute strike sealed their fate.

City re-established a 16-point lead at the top of the table on Saturday when they ended a run of three successive defeats with a 3-1 victory away at Tottenham Hotspur.

Our Time. Our City.

Because of goal difference, United realistically needed to win all of their six remaining games and hope City lost their last five matches.

Guardiola said he would not be watching United's game at Old Trafford on Sunday, but instead would beenjoying a round of golf with his son.

The Catalan has now won three titles in three different countries after three La Liga triumphs in Spain with Barcelona and three Bundesliga crowns with Bayern Munich and admitted it was one of his best achievements.

It caps a remarkable Premier League season that has seen City lose just twice thus far and win 28 of their 33 matches with a record-breaking run of 18 successive victories between August and December.
