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

West Brom helped Manchester City to the Premier League title by beating Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.Although the Baggies would be more concerned with what the three points would do for their survival hopes – if there are any – rather than what it did for City, as Jay Rodriguez’s second half strike meant United were beaten at home.It seemed as though the Red Devils were still hibernating after coming from behind to beat Manchester City 3-2 as they started this game very slowly, you would wonder if there was anything at stake. And there were no real efforts on goal from either side until the 12th minute, when Jake Livermore darted into the penalty area to latch on to a pass, and he unleashed a low shot in the direction of the left post. David de Gea was alert and denied him with a nice save.But eight minutes later, it would be United’s first chance of the game when a pass into the box found Romelu Lukaku unmarked. He carefully placed a shot towards the middle of the goal, but a brilliant last-ditch save by Ben Foster denied him.The tempo of the game kept drifting from poor to very poor, as neither side was showing enough going forward, with West Brom appearing comfortable containing their more illustrious opponents.
