Man City boss Guardiola: Foden has big future

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was delighted with Phil Foden's goalscoring performance in their Carabao Cup win at Oxford United.

A much-changed lineup swept Oxford aside, winning 3-0 thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez and a first City goal for Foden.

“He celebrated like it was his first goal. The guy is special - he's a City fan and he loves the club," Guardiola said.

“You see it in his behaviour - every single action. He is already a great football player.

“I don't remember my first goal. Of course, it was a good moment but it was a long time ago!

“Hopefully, for Phil, it is the first of many.

“He also had an amazing assist and he was involved in the first goal. City have a player for the next years."
