Pep: I'd have been sacked by Barca, Bayern

But they will end the campaign without a trophy as they scrap to qualify for the Champions League via a top four finish.

Zabaleta is expected to make his final home appearance for City against Albion, and Guardiola wants a happy ending to the full-back's story.

Yaya Toure's agent has denied reports that he has received an offer for a new Manchester City contract.

Manchester City's Argentinian defender Pablo Zabaleta warms up ahead of the English Premier League football match between Manchester City and Crystal Palace at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, north west England, on May 6, 2017. "I don't think he will play in either game", Guardiola said.

So who deserves to be in the starting XI?

The Baggies need five more points to eclipse the club's highest tally of 49 in a Premier League season, set in 2012-13.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Guardiola said: "Zabaleta's impact here was wonderful".

After dominating before the interval the hosts were hanging on at times in the second half and Mahrez had the chance to rescue a deserved point for last season's champions.

The New Zealand Prime Minister said he hadn't seen the footage last week, but 'for the sake of his audience, I hope it's amusing '.

"He has helped the club to where it is right now", City manager Pep Guardiola said on Monday, describing Zabaleta as "one of the most important players in the history of Manchester City".

"Pablo Zabaleta will leave City at the end of the season, bringing the curtain down on an incredible nine-year association with the Blues".

Arsenal are trying to steal City's place but manager Arsene Wenger believes it could be hard for his side because some teams are "having a breezer" instead of competing until the end of the season.

Could they do Arsenal a big favour tomorrow and keep the top four fight going?

"We are trying to improve week by week, training session by training session". Maybe next season we will score more goals and suffer in other parts of the game, so we have to find the balance to keep going and be stable.

"We have two games left and it was so important - against the last champions", Guardiola told Sky Sports.

"I wasn't anxious because I know I didn't touch it".

Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare agreed that the decision was correct but claimed the penalty could have been retaken due to encroachment into the area from City players. As a player, I've given everything and I love Manchester as a city and I've had my best moments as a player here at the club.
