Man United congratulate Man City on Premier League title win

Manchester United have this evening taken to Twitter to send their congratulations to rivals Manchester City on their Premier League title win.

Matchup

The two sides went head to head at Old Trafford a short time ago, with United having come into proceedings fresh off the back of their morale-boosting 3-2 comeback victory over Manchester City in the derby last weekend.

West Brom, meanwhile, had failed to pick up all 3 points in a Premier League outing since the middle of January, with the Baggies’ last match having seen them throw away a second-half lead to draw 1-1 with Swansea City.

0-0

The early exchanges of this evening’s clash saw hosts United control the vast majority of possession, but West Brom look surprisingly dangerous on the break through the likes of Salomon Rondon and Jay Rodriguez.

The best chances of the opening 45 minutes fell to Jake Livermore and Romelu Lukaku, with David De Gea and Ben Foster both subsequently producing impressive stops to keep the scores level heading into the interval.

The second 45 started out in a similar vein, with United once again struggling to break down the stout backline of their opponents.

And the lack of cutting edge on the part of the Red Devils, in the end, proved extremely costly this evening, as Jay Rodriguez’s headed finish in the 73rd-minute sent Darren Moore’s bottom of the table Baggies home with all 3 points.

Celebrations

Aside from proving an embarrassing result for Jose Mourinho’s United, today’s loss was compounded by the fact that it handed fierce rivals Manchester City the Premier League title, with the Citizens having since taken to Twitter to post numerous Tweets in celebration of their achievement:

Classy gesture

And, despite this evening’s proceedings having no doubt proven extremely difficult for everyone involved with Manchester United to deal with, the Red Devils have since taken to social media themselves to showcase their class, congratulating City on their title win:
