Phil Foden who has over 80 appearances in the Premier League, has won eight honours including becoming the youngest recipient of a Premier League winners’ medal. In 2019, he won a second Premier League and became the club’s youngest-ever goalscorer in the UEFA Champions League, and is the youngest English player to both start a match and score in the knockout stages of the competition.

This season has saw Foden evolve from a squad player to one of the mainstays of Manchester City, with returning striker, Sergio Kun Aguero failing to drop Phil Foden to the bench.
