Pep Guardiola missed Manchester City's title winning moment - because he was playing golf with Tommy Fleetwood
Get up and go Guardiola missed Manchester City's title-winning minute - on the grounds that he was on golf course with Tommy Fleetwood.

The Spaniard affirmed on Saturday evening following City's win at Spurs that he would not watch Manchester United interpretation of West Brom because of playing golf.

And, as Jay Rodriguez stooped to head home from a corner and send the title to the Etihad, Guardiola was with British ace Fleetwood playing a few holes at Sandiway golf club in Cheshire.

After their 3-1 win over Tottenham, the first Spaniard to the win the Premier League as a boss admitted: “I will be playing golf tomorrow with my son.

"Football is unpredictable but I expect United to beat West Brom.

“My guys are incredible. They are fantastic and have been awesome over the last eight or nine months. What we have done was not realistic so they deserve all my respect.

“What's happened in the last week is so unfair. But we have a second chance against Swansea and we're going to try and be champions.

"Today, we've done it many many times and that's why we're in the position we are. I am so so glad to be here and be part of the club. It was so good. The performance was so good.

"I will be so happy if we win today and I will celebrate but I think United will win."

Well, he was wrong - and it led to fans all saying the same thing...

After the Spurs match Guardiola added: “The important thing is that we know we depend on ourselves.

"We have the chance to win it at home and I will be very excited to be champions with our fans and it will remain in our hearts for the rest of our lives.”

City stormed into a 2-0 lead thanks to Gabriel Jesus and a disputed Ilkay Gundogan penalty after Hugo Lloris fouled Raheem Sterling who scored City's killer third after Christian Eriksen pulled a goal back for Spurs.

TV replays showed the Frenchman's foul was just outside the box – but Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino wasn't complaining.

“Sometimes it goes for you or against you so I'm not going to complain. We lost the game because they were better.

“I wasn't happy when I saw it on TV but the referee can make a mistake just like the players. You have to accept it as part of the game.

“We started the game really bad by conceding two goals and against a team like City who are the best in the Premier League so it was so easy for them because we didn't compete in the first 20 minutes.”
