Man City manager Guardiola: Look at Foden stats compared to bigger stars!

Pep Guardiola has lauded Phil Foden after the 20-year-old's match-winning display against Brighton on Wednesday.

Guardiola has started Foden in City's last three matches, all of which have been victories.

Foden scored the decisive goal against the Seagulls, and Guardiola praised his young star when speaking after the game.

"Phil Foden is 20 years old, look at the starts," Guardiola said. "The amount of games, the assists compared to the bigger stars in football.

"Can play both sides, in the middle as a false nine. He is so clever in front of goal. That is why he deserves to play."
