City and Arsenal will hope to finish in the top four.

Manchester City took a step closer towards guaranteeing a top-four finish in the English Premier League with a 2-1 win over Leicester City at Etihad Stadium, but were helped by a disallowed Riyad Mahrez penalty.

A 2-1 success over Leicester on Saturday ensured two more victories - against West Brom and Watford - guarantees them third place but the Brazil worldwide is already casting his mind forward.

Mahrez beat Willy Caballero with 13 minutes remaining but had slipped in his run-up and inadvertently struck the ball twice, once with each foot.

But Guardiola feels his past successes, which include two Champions League wins with Barca, can only protect him so far.

Manchester City now need four points from the remaining two games against West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday and Watford away on Sunday to be certain of a top-four finish although a win should be enough due to their superior goal difference.

The visitors also challenged the referee's decision to award City's opening goal, and they might have had a point.

So, for the moment, it's only Zabaleta who can really bid City farewell.
