Kevin De Bruyne scored the only goal of the game as Leicester frustrated the visitors with a defensive setup until near the end of the game when they pushed for an equaliser.

Maddison told BT Sport what Guardiola said to him: “He was asking why we didn’t play like the last 15 minutes for the whole game.

“But he realises it’s not as easy as that.

“He’s a top manager with a top team and it’s always going to be tough.”

Brendan Rodgers set up his team in a compact 5-4-1 formation that restricted the Premier League champions to very few chances.

As Leicester searched for an equaliser Maddison played a key role in trying to create a chance.

He has been the club’s star player this season scoring six goals and assisting a further two in 11 matches in the Premier League.

Maddison has been knocking on the door for an England call-up with the World Cup just around the corner.


As for Guardiola, his side moved top of table but Arsenal are just a point behind and are yet to play this weekend.

This is not the first time the ex-Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has confronted opposing players after matches for a chat.

He has previously gone up to Nathan Redmond when he was at Southampton telling him that his side should attack more.
