Foden delighted after 'best game' for City

Phil Foden hailed his two-goal display against Burnley as his 'best performance' for City.

The youngster was handed a start by Pep Guardiola against Burnley at the Etihad Stadium and he certainly didn't disappoint, firing in the opener from outside the box after just 23 minutes of City's 5-0 victory.

In fitting fashion, Foden finished the game just as he started, with a goal, netting at the back post after neat build-up play involving Kevin de Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus.

The Englishman was at the heart of almost everything good for City, producing a Man of the Match display, one which he feels is his best ever for the Club.

"I think that's my best game in a City shirt, to be honest," he said following his brace. "I'm still learning every day and I'm still young.

"I know I have a long way to go so I'm happy when I put a performance like that in - really happy.

"It's always good to play a part, scoring goals and I'm enjoying my football.

"The main thing is we're happy to get the result. We’re looking sharp, and we hope to continue the form into the next game."

City skipper David Silva also managed to get his name on the scoresheet, with Foden playing a big part in setting up the Spaniard, who will depart at the end of the current season. 

However, Foden is relishing every second alongside the playmaker.

"I wish he {David Silva} would extend his contract, to be honest!

"He's unbelievable to play with. I don't want to think about it [his departure] too much.

"He's a great guy - a legend of the Club - and it's a pleasure to play with him."

Foden has now found the back of the net three times since the return of Premier League football last week and is proving to be a handful for many opposition sides.

"I think it's down to the whole team wanting to work hard when we had the big break," he revealed.

"No matter who the manager puts out, we work hard. It's great to be part of the team. I'm enjoying it."
