City's coronation wad delayed by United's comeback win at the Etihad Stadium last weekend, but Pep Guardiola's side have today been crowned champions courtesy of Jay Rodriguez's second-half victor.
Manchester City on Sunday won the English Premier League title with 6 games remaining. This was the fifth consecutive Premier League victory for Mourinho's boys and they will look forward to extend the streak against a weak side this Sunday.
The team news is in as Manchester United prepare to face West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford. With City able to clinch the league title in front of their rivals, they began the match in electrifying fashion.
"I'm buzzing, over the moon, so happy". On the left-flank, January arrival Alexis Sanchez is certain to keep his spot for Sunday's game after his stellar performance against City last weekend, when he had a hand in all of United's three goals.
The 2012 title win had the infamous last-gasp goal by Sergio Aguero.
Mourinho, though, was quick to dampen talk that United had handed the title to City, insisting it is their dominance over the season that secured their coronation.
"This one differs in that we were consistent the whole season and we were able to play at the level we're expected to perform at".

Speaking after the win over Tottenham, Guardiola admitted winning the title in England would be one of the greatest achievements of his glittering career. That's the reason why they were champions.
City were without Aguero, who had sustained a rib injury in a vehicle crash, but Kevin De Bruyne made sure the Argentina striker wasn't missed as he slammed in the victor in the 67th minute.
While it may be premature to place City in that rarified air, they could make a case by breaking the Premier League points record of 95 set by Chelsea in 2004-05.
15 - Kevin De Bruyne, a strong contender for Player of the Year honours, has been an unstoppable creative force in his third season with the club, contributing a league-best 15 assists in his 33 appearances.
