The National - News - - SPORT FOOTBALL -

Af­ter Manch­ester City’s 3-1 win over Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur on Satur­day, Pep Guardi­ola said he would be play­ing golf in­stead of watch­ing Manch­ester United’s match against West Bromwich Al­bion on Sun­day. The City man­ager stayed true to his word, tak­ing to the course at Sandi­way Golf Club in Cheshire with his son, Marcus, and club pro Gareth Jones. The four-ball was com­pleted by none other than golf’s world No 12 Tommy Fleet­wood. Fleet­wood, who in Jan­uary de­fended his Abu Dhabi HSBC Cham­pi­onship, was last in ac­tion at Au­gusta Na­tional where he fin­ished tied-17th at the US Masters. While Guardi­ola was out on the course, United suf­fered a sur­prise de­feat to bot­tom-of-the-league West Brom that con­firmed City as cham­pi­ons with five games of the sea­son re­main­ing.
