- Foden excelled during their 4-1 win at Liverpool
- Guardiola: ‘It’s a different challenge for Phil now’
Pep Guardiola believes Phil Foden’s devastating display against Liverpool on Sunday has heightened expectations of the Manchester City forward and set a benchmark the 20-year-old must maintain for years to be considered a great player.
Foden was outstanding in the 4-1 win at Anfield and the City manager said it marked a significant step in the academy graduate’s development. Guardiola has told Foden that his performance will bring even more scrutiny but also showed he can achieve greatness if he reaches that level consistently.
