Mahrez: Foden impact shows we are all helping each other to improve

Riyad Mahrez said the impact of Phil Foden emphasized how everyone in the City squad is improving and helping drive up the collective level of excellence in Pep Guardiola’s record-breaking squad

Foden claimed his 11th goal of the season to open the scoring in our 3-1 win at Everton with Mahrez and Bernardo Silva adding superb goals after the break to secure a historic 10th straight league win since the start of 2021 - a new English topflight record.

And reflecting on both Foden’s display and another piece of English history, Mahrez said the England star's impact demonstrated how everyone was pushing each other to get better and keep improving.


“Phil is growing and playing more than last season, and everyone is playing very good and improving the level of the squad and we are all pushing each other," Mahrez told CityTV.

“We are in a good moment, but we have to keep focused, keep our feet on the floor and keep working."
