The caretaker boss named an unchanged line-up after seeing his side pick up a point against Swansea in his opening game in charge.

Ultimately, Rodriguez was the hero for West Brom - and City.

This season, they have gotten worse as the season has gone on, and came into this game with one win in their last thirty games.

The nature of their performance allowed Guardiola to hit back at those who had criticised him after the recent blip of three consecutive defeats. A22-goal haulin all competitions - achieved despite some galling, high-profile misses of late - represents the best season of a career flourishing all over again under Guardiola's guidance. Latching onto Harry Kane's through ball, his shot ricochet off Aymeric Laporte and then back off the Dane and in past Ederson.

In the first half, United's players created just two chances to West Brom's four which prompted Mourinho to bring Lingard on for Ander Herrera and half-time and the Red Devils immediately looked more threatening on the attack - albeit with no reward.

Manchester United suffered a humiliating 1-0 defeat to rock-bottom West Brom at Old Trafford to confirm Manchester City's coronation as Premier League champions. "We depend on us", he told the BBC.

"The Champions League is seven knockout games".

"It is all about the next fixture".

City subsequently join the United team of 2000/01 in becoming the only Premier League club to win the title with five matches remaining. And the best goal difference. The referee blatantly missed a horrible challenge, and this would prove costly to Manchester United.
