Evening Standard: How do Man City replace David Silva? Phil Foden will hope the answer is right in front of Pep Guardiola’s eyes

Writes James Robson: “The belief is this could be his [Foden's] breakthrough season.

"The year that he truly establishes himself with the back-to-back Premier League champions and answers England’s call for a top class playmaker.

“His goal against Tottenham in a crucial match during the title run-in last season was evidence of his game-changing qualities.
