Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United handed neighbours City the Premier League title on Sunday night.
Heading into the weekend, City needed a win against Tottenham Hotspur and also a United defeat to West Brom at Old Trafford.
And the football gods were kind enough to grant City boss Pep Guardiola and his team their wish, with City winning 3-1 at Wembley, while United lost to a Jay Rodriguez headed goal in the 73rd minute.
To calm his nerves ahead of the game, Guardiola chose to spend the day with his son on the golf course instead of waiting for the Devils’ fall.
He explained: “I have a golf game with my son.
“The only score I want to know is bogey or birdy. We will see. Football is unpredictable. Normally United beats West Brom.”
But bottom club West Brom - a team that has won just once since August – proved them wrong, to leave him celebrating his first Prem title.
With four games still to play for the Citizens, Pep can rub more salt in United boss Jose Mourinho’s wounds after seeing his team hand the title to their noisy neighbours.
All City have to do is win their three of those games to break Jose’s record for most wins in a Premier League season (30) and eclipse the most league points (95).
