Ndidi, Iheanacho and teammates will learn from defeat against City

A 3-0 win over Arsenal side sounds impressive, but they had 10 men and are defensively fragile. One is Barcelona with Luis Enrique, with Neymar, (Lionel) Messi and (Luis) Suarez up front.

"In my career as a manager, I played against incredible sides", the City manager said. "They have to have it in their heads and feet", he said. It's exciting to be involved but my thoughts are exclusively with Leicester and doing what we can to get a result'.

"Always I was sad I could not use him too much but we have always known we could count on him for his personality".

And the Catalan believes the way his side have fought back from being seven points behind Liverpool in early January, overcome a glut of injuries to key players and refused to rest on their laurels after amassing an unprecedented century of points last season, singles this out as his most satisfying campaign.

Leicester are now ninth on the log with 51 points after 37 matches and they will battle Chelsea in their last EPL match of the season.

"The difference is Liverpool".

On the other hand, many joked online that the Nigerian striker missed the goal deliberately to let his ex-teammates gain an edge over Liverpool.

Guardiola is thrilled his City players have maintained their standards following last season's record-breaking points total, with the club three wins away from completing an unprecedented domestic treble of Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup. To come into games like this here and nights like this is what the Premier League is about. "I think the performances that we're starting to see now, especially against the big teams, bodes well for our future". This was an incredible counter-attacking team and what we're looking to add to that is to play a positioning game that allows you to control possession. I didn't expect to maintain the level.
