That moment came in the 73rd minute when Jay Rodriguez finished off a wayward header by United's Nemanja Matic on the corner.

United had denied their "noisy neighbours" the title last week at the Etihad Stadium after coming from two goals down to win 2-3 in an intense match.

The Spain global told MUTV in the wake of a disappointing home reversal against West Brom which gifted the Premier League crown to City: "Second position was not done before the game".

With 87 points from 33 matches, City win their first Premier League title since 2013-14 under Manuel Pellegrini and their third since being bought by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008.

Because of this loss, Manchester City are crowned as Premier League champions.

The men of Jose Mourinho fell, at home no less, to the side in absolute dead last place; just eight days after beating top of the table Manchester City at their place. Everything was slow. Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn.

Mourinho felt that his side allowed their opponents too much time to get into shape when they were on the attack.

It was City's third title in seven seasons and easily its most convincing, with Pep Guardiola's team 16 points clear and still having five games to play this season. We could not play fast, we could not think fast, everything was complicated.

"Hopefully we can celebrate with our fans against Swansea (next weekend) and be champions because they deserve it".

"We still need to improve to reach the last level which is the most hard thing".

City tied the record for earliest date of sealing the Premier League title, sharing the mark with the 2001 United squad. I have been lucky to win three but so many I have missed as well. "I knew that sooner or later that would be and if I was in that position I would be very upset if someone said they won the title because Manchester United lost", he said.

Right-back Kyle Walker, who joined Man City last summer, said: "We did it!" Of their five remaining matches, no team is now higher than 13th in the table.
