  • Pep Guardiola This is the toughest league I’ve ever played as a manager

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers rued Kelechi Iheanacho's late miss which helped Manchester City move to within one win of the Premier League title.

Should Liverpool defeat Newcastle on Saturday night then Leicester leaving the Etihad Stadium with a point or more would put Jurgen Klopp's team in control of the title race.

The Spaniard, who had previously managed Barcelona and Bayern Munich, said the English top flight was the toughest league he had managed in.

"No doubts. That's why being there is incredible".

The Leicester victory was our 13 consecutive league win, only the fourth time in Premier League history that a team has enjoyed such a lengthy run and amongst the teams to do so, we're the only one who has done it twice.

"When you're seven points behind, you could have said, "It's done" and just think, "We did it last season", Guardiola added.

"It's not easy, honestly".

Numerous players who helped Leicester win the title have already moved on, including Robert Huth, Danny Drinkwater, N'Golo Kante and Riyad Mahrez.

Leicester Cit: The Foxes have been up and down all season, evident by the 15-6-15 record.

Since the rules were changed in 1981 to make a win worth three points, only once has a top-flight team finished with more than 95 points, and that was City last season. The difference [this season] is Liverpool - we did the same job [as last season]. "In my career as a manager, I played against incredible sides", he said. There are two that were "wow". One is the Barcelona of Luis Enrique's [who won the treble in 2014-15], with Neymar, [Lionel] Messi and [Luis] Suárez in front.

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

"That's why, arriving at this stage, two games left with 92 points, after 100 points [last season], is the most satisfaction I've had as a manager".
