Mixed emotions for Foden after Hammers strike

Phil Foden admitted he had mixed emotions in the wake of today's 1-1 draw at West Ham.

The attacking midfielder made an instant impact after coming on as a half-time substitute firing home a fine leveller after Michail Antonio had given the Hammers a first half lead.

But though we created several good opportunities after his leveller, we had to settle for a share of the spoils

And although delighted to have found the target, Foden admitted it was a frustrating result for the team.

“It’s not a good point. We wanted three but we’re not a team who will sulk a lot,” Foden reflected.

“We’ll get over it tomorrow, look at things we can improve on and go ahead.

“I tried to be lively and make a difference. I got the goal but unfortunately, we couldn’t get the second

“We came out second half playing lot quicker and being more aggressive. We need to work on finishing more chances and we should be OK.

“We started slow in the first half - we weren’t passing quick enough around the back and didn’t have a good tempo

“The manager spoke well at half time and more chances fell to us.

“I enjoy scoring and it was nice to get the goal. I love this club and love playing for them.”
