English Premier League Report, Manchester United v West Brom, 15 April

However, rudderless and managerless West Brom caused the shock of the season as Jay Rodriguez secured a remarkable 1-0 win at Old Trafford, sparking wild celebrations across the blue half of the city.

The fact that it handed the title to United's arch-rivals City, a week after they had beaten them, means it will reverberate around the football world.

Jay Rodriguez scored the only goal that has now delayed West Brom's confirmation for relegation and has confirmed City as champions.

18 United should have a penalty when Ander Herrera goes down in the box under Craig Dawson's challenge but for some reason referee Paul Tierney says no.

United was too narrow and predictable, with wide players Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata constantly cutting inside and leaving the midfield congested.

But Jose Mourinho´s men still ended up handing the trophy to City with a lacklustre display against bottom of the table Albion, who had won only three times in the league this season before this weekend. It might seem that way, but as we've seen quite clearly lately, they are far from invincible.

According to the reports, the attack targeted a large weapons and ammunition warehouse at Jebel Azan, outside Aleppo. He said the strikes were a direct response to the attack on Douma.

"It's incredible the way we played, and I am so glad to be here and be part of this club", he said on the club's website.

"I saw lots of people [over] the moon because we won against City".

West Brom took the lead against the run of play on 73 minutes as Rodriguez headed in past De Gea from a corner which came off Matic. Two points separate the teams and Arsenal's focus is now on winning the Europa League to qualify for next season's Champions League. "Then the first time you lose one, you think you're never going to win another ever again", he told Sky Sports.

"Too high because when you win a match that gives you nothing, it just gives you three points, but you react in a way that it looks like you won something really important, you pay the price". "It's one of those days that we didn't play good enough and we tried to create some chances in the first half and in the beginning of the second, but we didn't play quickly enough". 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.

Following the win, West Brom occupy the last league spot with 24 points and are set to face Mohamed Salah's Liverpool on the 21st of April.
