Man City’s Foden is again Premier League Young Player of the season

Manchester City’s ace young forward Phil Foden gas been consecutively named the Premier League’s Young Player of the season on Saturday.

Young Foden has been key in City’s bid to win the Premier League title for a second successive season, scoring nine goals and producing five assists.

The consistent 21-year-old has not had any difficulty matching his goal and assist totals from last season and there’s even a possibility he could surpass them in City’s vital Premier League title decider against Aston Villa on Sunday.

With Pep Guardiola’s side one point clear of second-placed Liverpool, they will be assured of a win for a fourth English title in five seasons if they beat Villa at the Etihad Stadium.

By the same token, Liverpool would win the title if they defeat Wolves and City drop points.

“I’m very proud to have won this award for a second season in a row,” Foden told City’s website.

“There are so many talented young players in the Premier League this season and it’s a real honour to win it again.

“I have been really happy with my performances this season and it has been great to contribute to this team in what will hopefully be another successful year for us all.”

In an award voted on by fans, Foden finished ahead of Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold, Chelsea’s Mason Mount, West Ham’s Declan Rice, Arsenal duo Aaron Ramsdale and Bukayo Saka and Crystal Palace pair Conor Gallagher and Tyrick Mitchell.
