FT | A stunning defeat for Manchester United at the hands of West Brom delivers the Premier League title for Manchester City. The Red Devils were not at the races at all today, struggling for rhythm in the final third. The Baggies were tenacious at the back, while Jay Rodriguez delivered the crucial goal for his team and City, nodding home from close range. There could be a glimmer of hope for West Brom and at the least it's a performance for their fans to be proud of this term. It's utter humiliation for Jose Mourinho after the high of the Manchester derby as United surrender the crown to their bitter rivals.

'90+3 | Valencia sends a cross to the back post for Smalling to attack, but he guides his effort straight at Foster.

'85 | West Brom are coping with everything that has been thrown in their direction this afternoon. They're doing a fine job of taking the pace out of the contest.

'80 | De Gea claims Brunt's corner with ease, but the distribution from the Spaniard is collected by McClean. He goes on the charge and hammers a low strike towards goal, although the United keeper watches it safely past the post.

'73 | GOAL! | Man United - West Brom 0-1. Rodriguez! Is there hope for West Brom in their battle to beat the drop? Rodriguez continues his fine form by finding the net. Brunt lifts a corner to the back post and Dawson challenges Matic in the air. It strikes off the United man and falls kindly for the forward. Rodriguez holds his nerve to nod the ball into the net. Hope for West Brom and champagne on ice at the Etihad Stadium as a United defeat would secure the crown for City.

'71 | Lingard latches on to Mata's lay-off and he goes for the first-time hit, only to see his effort drift wide of the post.

'66 | Matic sends a fine cross into the box for Lukaku to head at goal. The Belgian directs his effort towards the bottom corner, but Foster gets down to palm the ball wide of the target. A brilliant stop from the Baggies keeper.

'57 | Valencia cuts the ball back to Pogba following a run down the right. The Frenchman slides a pass to Mata, who goes for a strike from distance, only to slice his effort wide of the post.

'51 | Lukaku has a run at Gibbs down the right flank and tries to force a low cross to the near post. However, it deflects off the full-back and allows Foster to make the claim.

'47 | Lingard almost breaks the deadlock as he latches on to Sanchezs flick inside the box, but Dawson makes a vital block.

'46 | We are back underway in the second half!

HT | It's goalless at the break between Manchester United and West Brom at Old Trafford. The Baggies have had the best opportunity in the openig 45 minutes, but Jake Livermore was denied by David de Gea. United came close through Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, but Ben Foster was on form to deny the duo. Other than that there has been very little in terms of goalmouth action to report. Jose Mourinho will want to see more urgency from his team in the second half.

'44 | Pogba latches on to a loose ball on the edge of the box and hammers his effort towards goal. Hegazi is in the right place at the right time to make the intervention, diverting the ball over.

'36 | Pogba tries to break the deadlock with a touch of the spectacular with an effort at goal from distance, only to launch his strike over the bar.

'25 | Brunt lines up a strike from distance, only to see his effort charged down by Matic. West Brom keep the attack alive and McClean swings a cross to the back post for Rondon to head at goal, but he sends his effort straight at De Gea.

'18 | Mata releases Lukaku in the box and the Belgian attempts to poke his effort past Foster, but the keeper makes the stop. Sanchez goes for the strike on the rebound, only to be denied by the legs of Foster.

'12 | Rodriguez puts pressure on United to win back possession on the half-way line. He picks out Rondon, who in turn slides a pass into the feet of Livermore. The midfielder tries to curl his effort into the bottom corner, only to be denied by De Gea.

'5 | United have started with an up-tempo game and are moving the ball around the West Brom half.
