Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions on Sunday after neighbours Manchester United lost 1-0 to West Brom at Old Trafford. They lost only two matches because they were the best team. The Baggies are struggling, adrift at the foot of the Premier League table having sacked Alan Pardew earlier this month.

"I think United will win. Premier League Champions 17/18", City tweeted soon after the final whistle, when the fifth English top-flight title of its history was assured. "They don't understand anything", he said. I believe in myself.

He won three league titles with Barcelona and twice lifted the Champions League trophy during his Camp Nou reign. It would take a collapse of monumental proportions for City to throw away their 13-point lead, although Pep Guardiola has warned that it could 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. United's poor performance in front of their fans was in stark opposite to the last weekend's win at the Etihad. As shrewd a signing as he would have been, he has endured a bad season at The Hawthorns - he is one of a number of players to have under-performed significantly this term - and the queue to sign him would surely be nowhere near as long had his relegation release clause not existed.

"We are just trying to improve a little bit more, to give sequence to it".

Jake Livermore had one decent effort saved by David De Gea and Lukaku smashed an effort right into Ben Foster's face but that was about it. Nemanja Matic panicked at the delivery and headed back inside to Rodriguez, who could not miss from three yards out.

Shenmue was released for the Dreamcast back in 1999, and was originally conceived as an RPG set in the Virtua Fighter universe. Don't expect any changes in gameplay though.

West Brom are bottom of the standings with 21 points from 33 games but Moore said the players had to remain professional despite the club's hard situation. "I want to bring a family atmosphere to the club".

With a nod perhaps to next season, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger paired Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang up front and they combined for the goal, with Aubameyang clipping over a cross that Lacazette finished on the slide. As a result, we at the Hard Tackle predict a 2-0 win for the home team at Old Trafford this Sunday.
