Manchester City eventually breezed past Oxford United in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening, reigning victorious 3-1 at the Kassam Stadium, but one familiar youngster was the name on every City supporter’s lips despite heroics from the usual suspects.
Would Pochettino ruin his Tottenham legacy by moving to Arsenal?
However, despite Sterling’s prolific goal-scoring continuing in this game, another Englishman has also warranted praise for his assured performance – with popular starlet Phil Foden also attracting due recognition on his third successive start in all competitions.
City supporters have been begging Pep Guardiola to start Foden more often since the beginning of the campaign, and now it seems their faith will continue to be rewarded.
Here’s how Sky Blues fans praised the youngster on Twitter for another brilliant display.
man what a player you are! brilliant performance yet again
