Guardiola has been determined to include all sections of the club in City’s remarkable success this season.

Mourinho was angered by what he considered to be over the top celebrations from Guardiola’s side following the derby victory earlier this month – but City’s manager insists he will savour every moment of what is turning out to be an incredible campaign.

“I said celebrate again,” he said after victory against Leicester.

“You have to wait to win the titles. We don’t know if we will be able to win the Premier League.

“You have to celebrate the wins.

“In football you don’t need a title to enjoy it.

“You have to celebrate in the process.”

Menagerie owner Karina Jahdav wrote on Instagram: “We have hosted some amazing events & parties but last night was very special hosting 500 of some of the most talented football professionals, players and management in the world for their Christmas Party was a ‘pinch me’ moment!”
