A charge that West Brom forward Jay Rodriguez racially abused Brighton defender Gaetan Bong has been found "not proven" by the Football Association.
The Belgian international had recently become the youngest foreign player to reach a century of goals in what many consider to be the world's most competitive league. "Hopefully we can celebrate with our fans against Swansea and be champions because they deserve it". He said it made him realize that he will surpass the 100 Premier League goals mark due to the qualities he possessed.
Rodriguez, who had a personal hearing with the governing body on Wednesday, denied saying this, insisting it had been: "Breath fucking stinks".
It said the two lip-reading experts "could not help" on this "core issue". "All the few players [who were injured] are ready to play".
Romelu Lukaku saw a header saved by Ben Foster in the second half but, other than that, United rarely threatened to score.
It is Abu Dhabi-owned City's third title in seven seasons and their first since former boss Manuel Pellegrini achieved the feat in 2013-14.
Ultimately, Rodriguez was the hero for West Brom - and City.
But that's exactly what happened. We are not going to do anything crazy.
Warning: Some people may find the language below offensive.
"Yeah tomorrow I have golf game".
Do you have stories, videos or pictures you would like to share with the world? The Baggies had taken the lead. I think United will win. This prompted me to nudge him back and tell him to 'fuck off'.
"In retrospect, I realise that was childish and inappropriate, but I just wanted to close down the encounter". If I fail, it's no problem.
And several reports have linked Leicester star Maguire to make the move to Old Trafford.
United midfielder Nemanja Matic had headed a corner across his own goal area and Rodriguez reacted quickly to nod home the winner. Who provided the stand out contributions and who still needs to deliver?
Lukaku was in the thick of the action again in the 36 minute when he was put through on goal, but he failed to beat Foster in a one-on-one.
