Right-back Zabaleta to leave Man City

TEAM NEWS Gabriel Jesus preferred to Aguero for Man City

Zabaleta's exit comes five years after Manchester City won the Premier League title agaisnt Queens Park Rangers.

Leicester complained that Sterling was stood in an offside position in the build-up to David Silva's opener but the winger says he didn't involve himself in the play.

"We need one more game to be in the top four but it's in our hands".

The 34-year-old had been left out of City's plans and omitted from their Champions League squad after Pep Guardiola's arrival, due to a feud between the manager and Toure's agent Dimitri Seluk.

"The final weeks of the season have been tough, but we could win against Leicester and I'm very happy for these three important points", he said.

"We had to work really hard to become a better club and look at where we are today. He has given his heart to the club and he would find it hard to leave City".

However, Guardiola insisted his focus and that of his players must remain on trying to finish as high as they can in the table, with third place still a possibility.

"I remember at that time [Sir Alex] Ferguson and the 'noisy neighbours, ' and this is something that I have been since that time!"

"I thought: 'If they call us the noisy neighbours, then let's make more noise in the city".

"I knew something wasn't right from the spin of the ball [at the penalty], but that wasn't given in the Champions League, so you never know with the consistency".

"There is much more optimism that the club hasn't had since I've been here and people want to feel that and be part of it".

The City boss has been impressed by the way Toure has turned his season around and praised him on Saturday for unselfishly handing over the penalty duties to Gabriel Jesus to score the second goal against Leicester.

He has made more than 322 appearances for the club, winning two league titles, the FA Cup and two League Cups.

Pep Guardiola was content with the refereeing in a match that had several controversial moments going in Man City's favour. But the way they have been playing this season they have been so consistent.

City began Guardiola's reign with 10 straight wins and rising optimism but will end the campaign trophyless, with the likelihood of a Champions League place their only tonic.
