Riyad Mahrez was adjudged to have kicked the ball against his standing foot as he slipped while taking the 77th-minute penalty, which went high into the top corner. West Brom will be tough but so we can be better than today.
"When I saw the reaction from Willy [Caballero], I understood immediately [that] it was two touches", Guardiola said after the match.
The result doesn't mean much for Leicester on the whole, but it's a massive result for Man City and the other Premier League teams in the hunt for a top-four spot.
City's league record against Leicester over the past two season have been one draw and two defeats.
I'm sure we are improving, for the next two games and for next season as well.
"He helped us with his team-mates, with the club, to make a step forward, to try to qualify for the Champions League, to win the Premier League, to be in Europe three or four times in a row when it was never in Europe for 30 years".
City's lack of a killer edge, which Guardiola constantly bemoans, could have been punished when Albrighton almost equalised in the second half from a Jamie Vardy pass.
Guardiola believes City need more players with Zabaleta's commitment if they are to succeed in the future.
It was the second lucky break for Pep Guardiola's side whose opening goal, scored by David Silva after 29 minutes, incensed Leicester's players because Raheem Sterling appeared to be offside when he swung a leg at the ball.
Toure, though, declared himself no fan of such occasions when speaking to Sky Sports after the game, saying: "I think age is just a number". "I've seen that happen before (but) a long time ago".
They have 72 points to Liverpool's 70 with both sides having two games to play. After the goal and before we were very disciplined, gave everything, and should have got something out of the game.
Leicester, meanwhile, host second-placed Tottenham on Thursday night, as they try to cement a top-10 finish in a hard season after lifting the Premier League trophy a year ago.
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.
"There've been times throughout the season when I felt we deserved more but didn't get any luck", Sterling said. Let's prove that we are a club that is looking to achieve important things, and maybe one day be the main club in the city'.
