Pep Guardiola praises Manchester City star

Phil Foden scored the only goal of the game as Manchester City saw off the Cherries over the weekend.

Foden now has 16 goals and 10 assists in all competitions this season - a record only bettered by Erling Haaland.

And speaking after the Bournemouth win, Pep Guardiola was quick to praise the Englishman:

“Forget about the goals -- of course they are important -- but do you know how he played?” Guardiola told reporters.

“How he controlled and accelerated. He has become already a top-class football player. From a little boy, now he has become already Phil, a world class, top player.

“He’s so good. He can play everywhere, especially in the central position and play really, really good.”
