Foden: Gundogan's winner up there with Aguero moment!

Phil Foden claimed Ilkay Gundogan's dramatic late winner against Aston Villa on Sunday to seal City's Premier League title rivals even Sergio Aguero's strike ten years ago.

A lifelong City fan who was just 11 years old when Aguero hammered home against QPR in May 2012, Foden is well aware of how similar the circumstances were.

Although Gundogan's strike came with nine minutes remaining - more than ten minutes earlier than the famous 93:20 goal - Foden knows his fourth title win was not short on drama.

"It's definitely got to be up there with Sergio's moment!" he said on the pitch after lifting the trophy.

"The team that Pep has built, we always keep believing until the end. Not many teams could do that.

"I still hasn't fully sank in. I couldn't believe we went two goals down. The courage that we showed was unbelievable so I'm so happy to be a part of this special team."

The England international also heaped the praise on Ilkay Gundogan, whose two goals were pivotal in the second half turnaround.

"What a guy! He came on and changed the whole game! He always knows where the ball is going to be in and around the box.

"He's such a clever player. He was always there in the right place at the right time."
