Guardiola will play golf as City await title

He added: "Will I hear the scores?"

"I am a lucky guy", said Guardiola when pressed on this familiar topic ahead of the 3-2 derby reverse.

'I will be so happy, but I think United going to win [against West Brom].

City, who beat Tottenham 3-1 on Saturday, will be crowned champions if United lose at Old Trafford.

Three times in six days, City found themselves on the wrong end of defeats against Liverpool (twice) and Manchester United, with two of those losses coming in games City had led at half-time.

With the win, Manchester City boosted its Premier League points tally to 87 points, 16 more than second-placed Manchester City.

Arsenal crashed to a fifth consecutive away defeat as Matt Ritchie fired Newcastle to a 2-1 win at St James' Park on Sunday.

"We didn't take our first chance, so hopefully we can take the second chance to celebrate with our fans next week", Guardiola said. First-half goals from Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan and a Raheem Sterling effort after the break did the damage. "It was a wonderful goal from Rodriguez - thank you".

The Premier League announced on Friday that clubs had voted against implementing VAR next season, instead outlining the need to continue advanced testing. Promotion was secured from the League Championship after Fulham drew with Brentford. Wins over West Ham and Southampton would give them 50, and have Pep's men holding yet another record.

Guardiola's men were on course to drop points in two of their opening three games until Sterling's 97th-minute victor at Bournemouth back in August kicked off an 18-match winning run in the league.

It ended a 14-game unbeaten run in the league for Tottenham that began after losing at City in December.

"The way we conceded was disappointing, but there's nothing to worry about". "We are in the top four".

"But in one week we lost three games".

It wouldn't be the first time Thiago has followed Guardiola to a new club - he signed for Bayern immediately after Pep's arrival in 2013. I have been lucky to win three but so many I have missed as well. 'It's the degree we've got had all season. The people talk a lot, not knowing exactly what happened before the game.

Salah alone has 30 goals in the league, five more than Kane. The 47-year-old is nearly as famous for being restless as he is for winning things; for looking towards the next challenge as intently as he tackles the one at hand.

The champions have scored 93 times and conceded on 25 occasions. Substitute Olivier Giroud began the fightback in the 70th by heading in Marcos Alonso's cross.
