The Citizens won the game 2-0 with Raheem Sterling grabbing the game's opener on the half hour mark with Tyrone Mings' own goal 20 minutes from the end putting the result beyond all doubt.

However, what happened on the pitch during the game itself wasn't what everyone was talking about after the game had ended. It was the moment between Pep Guardiola and Harry Arter after the full time whistle that will stick long in the memory.

The City boss went up to the Bournemouth midfielder immediately after the whistle blew. The pair engaged in a handshake before having an extended conversation as the cameras spun around them. Guardiola then whispered into the Republic of Ireland international's ear before they walked off with their arms around each other, shared a joke and then separated.
