Pogba and Co. had put in a tremendous second-half against derby rivals City to win the Manchester Derby 3-2 and expectations were high that the Red Devils would carry forward their momentum against the bottom-ranked team in the league.
Manchester United's French midfielder Paul Pogba celebrates scoring their second goal to equalise 2-2 during the English Premier League football match between Manchester City and Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, north west England, on April 7, 2018.
Sergio Aguero has led the way in front of goal
For the third time in seven years, Manchester City are Premier League champions.
They have equalled the efforts of Manchester United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85) who all won the top-flight title with five games to spare. Everything was slow. Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn. West Brom played much better than everybody expected them to.
City rebounded from the United loss and a European exit at the hands of Liverpool by beating Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, and have 87 points with five games left. City had previously won an FA Cup, two league Cups, FA Community Shield, and two Premier League titles since the take-over of the influential and affluent United Arab Group in 2008.
"You need consistency at every level". 'We were masters in complication.
"Today is a sense of achievement because we've won the title in a way for the first time, I'd like to have won all other titles, so I'm extremely proud about this, and extremely aware of how fast these moments can go".
"I don't know what their problem has been this season", Lukaku added.
"I have won titles, I would not be happy if someone say won title if someone lose a match". "And then to get second in the league which is not the ideal position, but it's the position we want to finish now". They have lost eight of the last 10 games and drew their previous match against Swansea City under caretaker boss Darren Moore.
