United aiming to keep Man City title celebrations on hold again

Napoli’s manager Maurizio Sarri could replace Antonio Conte at Chelsea

Congratulations to Manchester City, deserved Premier League 2017/18 champions.

Guardiola might not have seen Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute winning goal at Old Trafford because he was playing golf with his son instead of watching the match.

Ahead of West Brom's clash against United on Sunday, Foster revealed that his personal priorities lie outside of football, but he will continue to play for the Baggies next season even if they are relegated to the Championship - on the proviso that his "glass knees" hold together.

Jay Rodriguez scored a second-half victor to beat a woeful Manchester United and hand a third Premier League title to Manchester City.

West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster has explained that the demands of playing for Manchester United did not fit in with his commitments to his young family.

"In the first half I felt I had to bring one player with more dynamic, more of a runner, touch the ball in spaces, I had to make a decision of one midfield player, then after that I wanted more width and Paul had a yellow card and before the substitute he had a situtation where you never know with referees".

The champions have scored 93 times and conceded on 25 occasions.

City need just nine points from their final games to set a new record for most Premier League points, while another 11 goals would see them set a new goal-scoring record.

West Brom will be missing the services of midfielders Gareth Barry (knee) and James Morrison (calf), both of whom are ruled out for the rest of the season.

"We've won you the league, Manchester City, we've won you the league", sang West Brom's fans near the end of the game. They have dropped a league-high 26 points from winning positions this season.

An impressive performance on Saturday saw City condemn Spurs to a first Premier League loss since the teams last met, at the Etihad back in December.

The 2012 title win had the infamous last-gasp goal by Sergio Aguero. They have lost eight of the last 10 games and drew their previous match against Swansea under caretaker boss Darren Moore.

"You can't take them for granted - I've been lucky to win three but there have been so many I've missed as well", said Kompany. As a result, we at the Hard Tackle predict a 2-0 win for the home team at Old Trafford this Sunday.
