    Reaction as Manchester City win Premier League title following Manchester United loss to West Bromwich Albion

    Manchester City have won the Premier League title after West Bromwich Albion's 1-0 win at Manchester United gave Pep Guardiola's side an insurmountable lead at the top of the table.

    Jay Rodriguez's stooping header was enough to seal all three points for the basement boys at the Theatre of Dreams and send the title to the Etihad Stadium.

    On Saturday night, City piled the pressure on their local rivals by winning 3-1 against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium, and Jose Mourinho's side could not extend the race any longer.

    The title is Guardiola's first Premier League crown after winning titles in Spain and Germany with Barcelona and Bayern Munich respectively.

    Here is some of the reaction to Man City's third league triumph in the last seven years.

    Vincent Kompany, Man City captain

    “It’s the same feeling as the first time. You can’t describe it.

    “I was talking before, the first time you win it, you think you’ll win all of them. Then the first time you lose one, you think you’re never going to win another ever again.

    “You just want to hold on to the feeling. It’s a difficult achievement and I’m proud of the team and everyone involved.

    “You can’t take it for granted. I’ve never been able to retain a title and I want to see if this team has it to be even more successful.”

    Jose Mourinho, Man United manager

    “I don’t know if I was the first, second or third, but I congratulated them face to face when I had the chance.

    “I knew that sooner or later that they would be champions and if I was in their position I would be very upset if someone said they won because United lost against West Brom.

    “They won because they were the best team, they lost only a few points.

    “Probably because I won eight championships, I was not in the moon with the victory against them, because that doesn’t make me feel super happy, and, in my opinion, it affected for sure some of the people that were too happy.”
