James Maddison added a fourth while Youri Tielemans made it 5-2 after a second goal for City by Nathan Ake.

Speaking after the game, Guardiola blamed the loss on the style displayed by Leicester City.

“They didn’t want to play, they defended so deep and just wanted to counter-attack.

“They scored the first time they arrived and had three penalties in total, so it was very difficult for us. The lack of creating chances made us nervous and anxious,” Guardiola told reporters.
