Pep Guardiola told his Manchester City players before facing Leicester that Jamie Vardy was guaranteed to get in on goal.
The Foxes striker struck on the counter to give the away team a surprise lead against the run of play at the Etihad before the Premier League champions roared back with three goals to win an important three points.
Leicester's goal exposed a City defence that has struggled this season without Vincent Kompany and Aymeric Laporte, but the Blues coach thought that any team would struggle to defend against the quality that the striker has.
"I said to the players before, what happened with Vardy is going to happen 100 per cent," he said.
"One or two or three times they are going to run one against one in the keeper. He does it against Otamendi and Fernandinho but he does it against all centre-backs in the world. He is unstoppable in that situation.
"The question is how few times he can do it, it depends on how high our pressing is and how many chances we can create to score goals.
"The other option is to defend in the box but with my team that is not going to happen. The more difficult it is, the more forward you have to go, the more high pressing."
