Manchester City player Phil Foden has won Premier League’s Young Player of the Season award. The English international had won the award also in 2020-21. Foden has registered nine goals and five assists in the Premier League 2021-22 campaign. He has become a major highlight under manager Pep Guardiola as City aim to defend the Premier League title on Sunday.
Foden is one of the best young footballers in today’s game. He is also a step ahead among other youngsters in the Premier League.
This is largely because of his importance as he can play in numerous positions and be equally effective.
Foden is loved by Pep Guardiola and the youngster can go on to improve his offerings in the near future.
Foden went on to fend off other nominees in this section as Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold, Crystal Palace’s Conor Gallagher, Tyrick Mitchell, Chelsea’s Mason Mount, Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale and Bukayo Saka, besides West Ham’s Declan Rice. This award is generally for players aged 23 or under.
Foden can win a fourth Premier League title on Sunday. He has already won three league titles with City in 2017-18, 2018-19, and 2020-21 respectively.
