Juan Mata states his prediction for Man United v West Brom

Manchester United followed up City's 3-1 victory over Tottenham on Saturday with a shocking 1-0 loss at home to 20th-place West Brom on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho's United team had needed to win against West Brom to keep the title race alive but surprisingly lost at home as Jay Rodriguez's header gave the league's bottom side a 1-0 win at Old Trafford.

Mourinho acknowledged that "City were the best team" in the Premier League, telling the BBC: "Sooner or later they would get the points, so no dramas when the best team wins the league".

After winning 85 per cent of their opening 13 Premier League games against West Brom (W11 D2 L0), Manchester United have won just 40 per cent of their last 10 against them (W4 D3 L3).

It was City's third title in seven seasons and easily its most convincing, with Pep Guardiola's team 16 points clear and still having five games to play this season.

And that was also the case on Sunday, as United failed to spark the imagination in any tangible way even though they were playing a side that had hadn't won in the league since January. So, if you ask me, I'm expecting Paul now to be man of the match every week? No.

Nothing is going the Baggies' way and they are a side in total disarray at the moment with confidence levels in the team low as the prospect of relegation looms larger with each passing day.

LeBron James' free agency plans questioned after loss to Indiana Pacers
I mean it is no surprise that they started slow because most of their team has little playoff experience. LeBron James had a triple-double, with 24 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds.

"Eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues". I know how to win.

"We had a few days to rest and prepare but football is unpredictable and sometimes things happen". His effervescent style makes him a ideal number 10 for a Mourinho side which relies on efficient passing and movement more than it does flamboyant football. "I am delighted to have the chance to win in front of our people".

The second half was not much better but Foster did wonderfully well after 66 minutes to tip a Lukaku effort around the post before the visitors resistance was then unexpectedly rewarded with 17 minutes remaining. Nemanja Matic panicked at the delivery and headed back inside to Rodriguez, who could not miss from three yards out.

But it feels just as good because you can't take it for granted.

"Only way we can achieve results moving forward is with togetherness".

But by season's end, City's title will be no less satisfactory.
