West Brom braced for United's firepower, say Foster

West Brom braced for United's firepower, say Foster

They won it in the last remaining seconds in 2012, and in the final match in 2014.

The post Mourinho slams United as they hand title to City appeared first on Vanguard News.

- Only one side starting the day bottom of the table has ever won a Premier League game at Old Trafford - Blackburn Rovers winning 3-2 in December 2011.

United beat West Brom 2-1 in the reverse fixture earlier this season with goals from forwards Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard and Foster said the league's basement club had to be wary of the threat posed by Jose Mourinho's side. And the recent form does not help them either, as WBA have two draws and eight losses in their last 10 Premier League matches.

However, Guardiola's side did win the Carabao Cup by beating Arsenal at Wembley.

What an irony! A relegation-threatened club like West Bronmwich Albion has inflicted a defeat on Manchester United and in turn, handed the Premier League title to the deserving leaders and Red Devils' arch-rivals Manchester City.

A United victory on Sunday afternoon would keep City's champagne on ice for a few more days at least. Chris Smalling had an attempt as the clock wound down and the full-time whistle saw City crowned champions.

"I have won titles".




City, however, now sit on 87, and would reach 102 points if they were to win each of their remaining five games, thus becoming the first to ever crack 100 in the English top flight in the process.

We all love seeing a fair physical battle on the football pitch, but don't expect anything to be fair when you come up against the following 5 players.

It is the fifth time City have been English champions and the third time in the last seven seasons.

The 47-year-old also took the German title three times with Bayern Munich, but he believes the unique strength in depth and physical demands of the Premier League makes this triumph among his very best.

Pep Guardiola will be delighted to have won two trophies this season, but will be determined to go one step further and win the Champions League next season - something he has not done since leaving Barcelona in 2012. He said it made him realize that he will surpass the 100 Premier League goals mark due to the qualities he possessed.

"These players deserve all my respect because they have been unbelievable all season".

West Brom caretaker manager Darren Moore says his side have great faith in each other, after his team surprised Manchester United with a 1-0 win at Old Trafford.
