A second successive Premier League title had only just been secured hours before with a resounding 4-1 win over Brighton on the final day.
In doing so, Manchester City became the first team since Manchester United in 2009 to defend their crown, and also saw their points tally from the last two seasons total an astounding 198 – truly ridiculous.
Surely, after managing to achieve such a difficult feat, you would think Pep Guardiola and his team would kick back with a beer and just relax for a moment on the plane back to Manchester, right?
Are Man City better than Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’? Fans discuss in the video below…
The Spaniard hasn’t got to where he has in the game by switching off, not even for a second.
Thanks to the official Pep Guardiola Twitter account, @PepTeam, we were able to see what the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss got up to on the plane back from the title-winning victory at the Amex Stadium, and it is truly commendable.

The image shows Guardiola and one member of his staff obsessing over the match against the Seagulls, analysing every detail whilst the Premier League trophy sits right in front of them; it is almost discarded to the side, as if to suggest that the next title is already the main focus in the mind of the 48-year-old and his team.
It is this ruthless, relentless attitude that has seen Guardiola pick up a staggering 906 league points out of a possible 1104 across his 10-year coaching career, a record that shows just how obsessed the Spaniard is with achieving perfection.
This state of mind must be agonising for teams such as Liverpool to watch – a side who recorded their highest ever Premier League points total with 97, had two Golden Boots winners, the PFA Player of the Year in their side as well as the winner of the Golden Glove; even all of that wasn’t enough to knock Pep off his perch.
