It may not have been 'Aguerooooooooooooooo' like drama, but it was still a pretty eventful day.

'It shows how football is lived in Manchester'

Manchester City win the league

Manchester City

Vincent Kompany talking to Sky Sports:

"I had a feeling when I woke up this morning. I don't like to wait and see a team lose so it was different experience today.

"West Brom are a good team and don't deserve to be that low in the league."

On watching the game with his family, including a big United fan:

"It shows how football is lived in Manchester as we have Reds in the family and Blues but today was a day for the Blues. It is banter. It's been a great day."

On winning his third Premier League title:

"You can't take (winning the league) for granted, I've won three now but there's so many we've missed. My team-mates will roll their eyes as I want to see the reaction from us next season as I've never been able to retain a title.

"My favourite title is the first one. That was special."

On having Pep as a manager:

"I have learnt from him. When I was 20 I would have been a perfect player for him. Everyone that plays under him will have had success because of him, because he has the ability to unlock the full potential."

And with that, he's off to 'meet the lads'

Let's not forget about West Brom's achievements today.

It may well be too little too late for the Baggies, but they're not going down without a fight.

Darren Moore has a win and a draw as caretaker boss, which is more than former manager Alan Pardew managed in 18 games.

How happy for Darren Moore are ya!👏👏 what a man.

A short but gracious message from the red side of Manchester...

The number of replies saying 'delete' is quite amusing.

Congratulations to Manchester City on their Premier League title win.

'Manchester City scintillating'

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Chris Sutton

Ex-Chelsea striker on BBC Radio 5 live

Manchester City have deserved it. Their brand of football this season has been scintillating.

They've scored more goals and they have a brilliant manager.

Their football on the eye has been superb and they've been streaks ahead of everyone else.

Old Trafford was a Theatre of Nightmares this afternoon.

You'd think they'd back the derby win up with a strong performance.

But they've handed the title to City on a platter.

Chris Lincoln: For all of City's great football this season, what a drab & boring way for the title to be confirmed. All part of Jose's plan.

Zeb Bowyer: Mourinho is a Genius. Beat City in their backyard to deny them their victory parade in front of their home fans, then lose to WBA to take the gloss of City celebrations ... The Master Tactician

'It hurts'

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Manchester United

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata speaking to Sky Sports: "I think there's no excuses. It was a bad day for everyone and a bad result. We're disappointed and we understand the fans' situation. It was a slow game and we didn't play well at all.

"After last week we wanted to keep going with the same spirit. We didn't' create enough chances. They are fighting for survival but there's no excuses."

On handing City the title: "It hurts. Basically we didn't do our job today which was winning. Our aim is to keep second position and it's not done yet. Today was a bad day and we need to move on.

"We had a few days to rest and prepare but football is unpredictable and sometimes things happen. We're sad and disappointed with ourselves."

Carried away

Jose Mourinho also suggested some of his players got carried away by last week's 3-2 win at Manchester City.

He said: "Probably because I won eight championships, I was not over the moon with the victory against them (City) because that doesn’t make me feel super happy and in my opinion affected for sure some of the people that was too happy."

'A coronation in the making'

Jose Mourinho was asked whether he took £89m midfielder Paul Pogba off because he had already got a yellow card and was at risk of getting sent off.

The Manchester United manager limited his response to one word: "Also."

Jose Mourinho's interview with the BBC's Juliette Ferrington after the game is pretty feisty.

'No dramas when the best team wins the league'

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Manchester United

Jose Mourinho to BBC: “It was a bad reaction after the City victory, the consequence of that is complicated football. Some players think it is stylish football. We were a complicated team and let them feel comfortable.

“To win against Manchester City was not a title for me, for me it was a good three points to try and finish second, top four at least,.

"We have proven today it was important because it compensates for the three we lost today. I was not going to celebrate like crazy, for me we should play with great focus and intensity and try and kill the top four situation and be more stable in second.

“City were the best team, sooner or later they would get the points, so no dramas when the best team wins the league.”

Moore's pride at Baggies win

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

West Bromwich Albion

West Brom caretaker coach Darren Moore to BBC: "We played against a really formidable team today, asked a lot of questions, but everyone worked hard and did their jobs.

"I'm proud for players and staff and way they have acquitted themselves today.

"Only way we can achieve results moving forward is with togetherness. I want the players to express themselves, show the outside world what good players they are. I am pleased we managed to show everyone that today."

On being the next Baggies boss: "I am looking at the next game, we have come here today, got a positive result, I am just focusing on the team and performances."

Jose on challenging City

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Simon Stone

BBC Sport at Old Trafford

Jose Mourinho has been speaking in his press conference about whether Manchester United can challenge Manchester City next season.

"I trust in my work. Eight titles. Three Premier League. Last not 20 years ago, it was three. I know how to win. I believe in myself. You don't win titles with inconsistency. You need consistency at every level. The mental level, day by day."

In case you're just joining us and you're wondering what on earth is going on...

Manchester City have been crowned Premier League champions for the third time in seven years!

Their title was confirmed after Manchester United's shock 1-0 home defeat by West Brom this afternoon.

Second-place United are now 16 points behind Pep Guardiola's side with only five games left to play.

United 'desperately flat'

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Chris Sutton

Ex-Chelsea striker on BBC Radio 5 live

That was desperately flat today.

It's a tall order for United to even win the FA Cup and if they don't, it's the same old story.

'Masters in complication'

Manchester United 0-1 West Brom

Manchester United

Jose Mourinho to Sky Sports: "We were masters in complication, everything was complicated.

"We didn't want or played simple, everything was slow, one more flick, trick, turn. There was no fluidity. We did not deserve to lose, we gave them opportunity to win the match.

On United's complacency after the derby win: "I won eight titles and I am not on the moon because I won against Manchester City.

"I saw lots of people in the moon because we won against City. You could see the difference in the attitude to players compared to last week."

"We deserve top be punished, but the defeat was too heavy."

On City's title win: "I have won titles, I would not be happy if someone say won title if someone lose a match. City won the title because they won more points than everyone else, not tell City they won title because United did not win, it is not fair on them."

Here comes Jose. He's got some strong words to say...

West Brom goalscorer Jay Rodriguez to Sky Sports: "Everyone stuck together. Darren Moore has got us working, it's clicking and a great feeling.

"This is a game you always look forward to at Old Trafford, it is the biggest club in the world, to score here is amazing and the buzz I feel for how hard we've worked is amazing to me."

Speaking after a charge that he had racially abused Brighton defender Gaetan Bong was found "not proven" by the Football Association, Rodriguez added: "It has been horrendous for me and my family.

"I am a great believer in the truth will always comes out. It is a massive weight of my shoulders and anything affects my family hurts me deep."

That was West Brom's first away win since August and their first league win since January.

The Baggies are still stuck to the bottom of the table and will need to win all four of their remaining games to have a chance of the great escape.

Here's what Jay Rodriguez had to say about his all-important goal...

'West Brom's best performance of the season'

Manchester United 1-0 West Brom

Martin Keown

Former Arsenal defender on BBC Radio 5 live

Congratulations to City they've been the far better team this season. Ironic for United to lose to bottom of the table but City won't care about that.

Guardiola has probably just finished his golf round. This season they have been outstanding with De Bruyne the best player in the league.

It was very dour today. Should Herrera have been starting over someone like Martial?

This was by far West Brom's best performance of the season but I don't believe they'll stay up.
