The hosts threw everything at West Brom in the closing stages, but were unable to find a breakthrough that would have delayed City's title confirmation until at least Wednesday when United take on Bournemouth.

After exiting the Champions League and failing to win the league last weekend against United, City's match at Wembley was probably the biggest test for them this season.

West Brom captain Jonny Evans looks likely to be on his way this summer with the Baggies pretty much certain to go down at this stage.

"Daniel is back in training and he's been working incredibly hard on his fitness levels and everything else", said caretaker manager Darren Moore.


After inflicting league leaders and rivals Manchester City their first defeat at home in over 70 weeks, Manchester United continue their push for second-place against a struggling West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Rodriguez was charged with using "abusive and/or insulting words which included a reference to ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race" towards Gaetan Bong during a Premier League match in January.

The first real scoring chance of the game fell to West Brom in the 12 minute when Jake Livermore broke into the box, but he was thwarted by David de Gea from close range.

Would they drop points again against an in-form Spurs side who had won their last six Premier League game and unbeaten in the league since City beat them 4-1 in December?


Romelu Lukaku scored a hat-trick for the visitors in a 5-5 draw against United in 2013 and will be hoping to pile further misery on his former club this afternoon.

In team news, goalkeeper Sergio Romero is the only major absentee this weekend as he battles back from a knee injury, while Phil Jones is doubtful as he works on returning to full match fitness.

The official was on hand 10 minutes later to book Pogba after attempting to throw the ball in, only exacerbating the testimonial feel at Old Trafford.

Foster collected a Chris Smalling header at the back post deep into stoppage time.


James McLean fired across face of goal and United failed to muster a leveller.
