West Brom are ten points adrift of safety

His side beat Tottenham 3-1 with an impressive performance at Wembley on Saturday in which Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling were on the scoresheet.

Subs not used: Jones, Rojo, McTominay, Joel Pereira.

West Brom now move to within nine points of safety, although they must face Liverpool, Tottenham and fellow relegation battlers Crystal Palace in their final four matches of the campaign.

"Last season we finished sixth and this season we are going to finish I believe fourth, third or second - hopefully second - and next season we are going to try and improve but let's see what happens".

But it feels just as good because you can't take it for granted. Players said they'd be with family.

Guardiola failed to win a trophy during his first season in English football but has now added the Premier League to the EFL Cup crown collected against Arsenal in February. The wrong set of results could relegate the Baggies this weekend.

Eder Militao is on the radar of Chelsea after Manchester City were also rumoured to be interested in the Sao Paulo midfielder, the Daily Mirror reports.

West Brom's former United keeper Ben Foster dealt with the few real efforts that came from the home attack - keeping out a close-range strike from Romelu Lukaku in the 19th minute and then a header from the Belgian in the 66th.

In the United States, the game will be shown on NBCSN at 11:00 AM ET.

However, they were gifted the title prematurely after United's humiliating defeat to West Brom on Sunday.

Only one side starting the day bottom of the table has ever won a Premier League game at Old Trafford - Blackburn Rovers winning 3-2 in December 2011.

It is the team's first league title since 2014.

Manchester United have kept a league-high 16 clean sheets this season, with 11 of those coming at Old Trafford - also the most in the league. Eight titles. Three Premier League. They have dropped a league-high 26 points from winning positions this season. West Brom are the bottom team and that indicates how important and decisive the game will be for them; they need points.

But he has still scored 26 goals for United this season, 15 of them in the Premier League.

Manchester United are looking to secure a sixth consecutive Premier League victory, something they last achieved in January 2017.
