Foden played the full 90 minutes in Tuesday's comfortable 3-0 Carabao Cup win at Preston.
It was only his third appearance of the season - the other two being late substitute entrances in the Community Shield and last month's opening Premier League win at West Ham - but the 19-year-old insists he is not getting impatient.
Asked if he was frustrated, he said: "No, I played here so that is the main thing. I am just looking forward, I am just trying to take my minutes any time they come and do my best. Any time I get game time is important. I just try and enjoy it.
"It is my boyhood club and a dream to play for this club, so any time I put the shirt on I just enjoy it to the max."
