City cruised to a 4-1 win on the final day to beat Liverpool to the league title by a single point and for many at the club it was a weekend dominated by celebrations following a long season.
And according to the Times, as Guardiola arrived for his usual Monday morning breakfast, he could not be served as the cook was too hungover to come in.
Pep Guardiola caught Manchester City’s chef by surprise after winning the Premier League
After clinching the title, Guardiola arrived for his usual breakfast at training ground on Monday
After the 4-1 win over Brighton, Guardiola gave his title-winning players the Monday off, so staff at City’s training base did not expect anyone to be around.
But the report reveals that Guardiola had agreed to meet City directors Txiki Begiristain and Manuel Estiarte for breakfast – it was a meeting that they undertook every Monday morning.
Ferran Soriano, the chief executive, is a regular attendee but he was away on business.

One staff member, who was on duty at the facility, frantically called the first-team chef, but he was said to be exhausted having celebrated Sunday’s title win on the south coast.
‘I’m too hungover,’ he said down the line, according to The Times, leaving the member of staff to rustle up some eggs on her own for the trio.
Guardiola has maintained relentless levels in all parts of the club as City recorded back-to-back titles as part of an unprecedented domestic treble.
They got this season’s trophy haul underway with a penalty shootout win over Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final before completing the set by returning to Wembley for Saturday’s FA Cup final.
Goals from Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne ensured a comfortable 6-0 rout against Watford as Guardiola’s players continue to make history.
After wrapping up the Treble, one expects the City chef will not have found himself caught off-guard with Monday morning breakfast orders this time round.
