Man City boss Guardiola on goalscorer Foden: Phil has to be Phil - not De Bruyne

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was delighted with Phil Foden's goalscoring performance in their FA Cup defeat of Cheltenham.

Foden struck in the 3-1 win on the day.

“We have the players - Phil has to be Phil and not be Kevin De Bruyne because there is only one Kevin De Bruyne," the City boss stressed.

“He needs to keep doing what he has being doing in terms of when we are in a bad moment or when we are losing in terms of what he gave to the game.

"Phil is in a great moment and with great confidence. he is clinical in front of goal.

“He can play winger, in the middle or in four or five positions up front. He is playing really well, has the physicality and in the right moment he scored a goal."
