Premier League leaders City took their unbeaten run to 12 matches and have won all six of their away games this season.
They already have the look of champions but manager Guardiola warned: “Complacency? That is not going to happen. I will kill them. The team is going to come first.”
He said he is ready to splash the cash in January to bring in a new central defender after John Stones limped out of this game with a hamstring injury that is expected to keep him out until the new year.
Guardiola said: “We have a real, real problem in that position. The assessment isn’t good.
“He will be out for a long time – we will miss him for a month or six weeks. ”
Guardiola is privately seething that Stones played in both of England’s recent friendly games.
He said: “You play 90 minutes, 90 minutes, 90 minutes and then go to your international team and play two 90-minute games that don’t count for anything in terms of points.”
Vincent Kompany is back after a long injury lay-off but Guardiola warned : “We have to be careful in terms of how many minutes we give him and how he feels because he was out for two and a half months.”
Guardiola has made his side believe they are world beaters, says Kevin De Bruyne.
The Belgian was a key figure in the 13-pass move that led to his team’s opener from Gabriel Jesus and then lashed in a thunderous drive for the second goal with his ‘weaker’ left foot. “The
manager has given us confidence that we can beat everybody,” said De Bruyne.
Leicester were not bad but Manchester City were just so much better, even if they were fortunate in the second minute when Kompany received only a yellow card for wiping out Jamie Vardy.
Leicester’s Marc Albrighton said: “It feels like they have an extra player all over the pitch .
“If there’s a team out there that will beat them to the title this season I’ll be very shocked.”
