Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has revealed that he will play golf rather than watch Manchester United’s game against West Brom on Sunday – despite knowing his side could win the Premier League title.
City, who beat Tottenham 3-1 on Saturday, will be crowned champions if United lose at Old Trafford.
“The only score I want to know is bogey or birdie,” said Guardiola, who will play with his son.
“I think United will win. We depend on us.”
City hold a 16-point lead over second-placed United, who have six games to play compared to City’s five.
If United beat bottom club West Brom, they must also avoid defeat at Bournemouth on Wednesday to prevent City winning the title.
City face relegation-threatened Swansea at Etihad Stadium on 22 April.
“Will I hear the scores? Bogey, double-bogey, birdie,” said Guardiola.
“The important thing is to have the chance to win at home. I am delighted to have the chance to win in front of our people.”
City let slip a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 in the Manchester derby on 7 April, when victory would have clinched the title.
