Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admits he's a fan of Leicester City's midfield pair.

Wilfried Ndidi and Youri Tielemans can both count on Guardiola's admiration.

Guardiola said, "Ndidi is doing really well. Tielemans is a top, top class player. I remember when I arrive my first season and Vincent Kompany started speaking about him when he was in the national team for Belgium how good he was in that period. Vincent as always he was right. Top, top club, players are quality. They can play when you defend deep they have the quality to find the sources and when the space to move in behind, especially Vardy and Kelechi right now.

"Top class team. We have eight games left, for them nine, and they are third in the Premier League so it means they have done incredibly well, incredible. But not just this season last season as well. In the previous ones they were champions with Ranieri time ago and since then they have always been there.

"They lose players but they rebuild the team. They continue to be so solid, so competitive, they have my admiration for all the club. It's not just for a half season, one season, it's for a long time really well."
