Manchester City wins English Premier League title after rivals Manchester United stumble

Kompany watched Manchester United's shocking 1-0 defeat to West Brom, which handed City the title on Sunday, with his wife Carla at her United-supporting father's home before broadcasting his celebrations live on social media.

Second-place United dragged the title race out for at least another week by winning 3-2 at City last weekend, only to gift the trophy to City by losing to a team that is destined for relegation and had just one league win since August.

After Manchester United suffered an embarrassing defeat at home against the league's bottom club, their neighbors Manchester City were confirmed champions of England with five games to spare.

City were officially crowned champions after Manchester United were beaten 1-0 by basement club West Brom at Old Trafford.

And if City have shown opponent after opponent this season it is that they can score goals aplenty - 93 so far - and if they can find 11 more between now and the end of the season they will steal another Premier League record.

Trump declares Syria airstrikes 'mission accomplished'
The report says Syria's air defences confronted the missiles near Homs, and says the airstrikes also targeted an army depot there. According to U.S. officials, the operation comprised three USA destroyers, a French frigate and a United States submarine.

Guardiola and Mourinho have a long rivalry but the United manager said it was not fair to suggest the West Brom loss was the only reason for City's league title.

But on Sunday afternoon, as it clinched the Premier League title, the club did none of those things.

He also conceded it was sweet to triumph in a country where some critics claimed his purist principles couldn't flourish.

In the past, so many Premier League winners have been associated with power and counter-attacking prowess.

From there, the Bruins content to ride the coattails of one magical player and coast to a 7-3 win in Game 2 of the first round. No doubt Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock has watched the tape over and over while game planning how to counter Boston's attack.

Guardiola has now won seven league titles in nine seasons as a senior coach in three countries after conquering La Liga and the Bundesliga with Barcelona and Bayern Munich on multiple occasions. "It was a bad reaction after the City victory, the outcome of that is complicated football", said the United manager.

"Last season against the other contenders was not so good, we won few games".

Tottenham's record of 31 wins in a top-flight season.

Thankfully for City, Gabriel Jesus equalised soon, but then it was still 1-1, and another draw would have meant United go four points clear of City at the top. Riding high on the rampant form of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, City had already set a new Premier League record earlier this season by winning 18 successive matches.

Syria's Assad in a 'good mood,' scorns United States weaponry after airstrikes
Haley's warning comes after American, British and French forces fired over one hundred missiles at the Arab country on Saturday. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called it the Western air strikes a crime and the Western leaders criminals.
