Manchester City fans have taken to Twitter to heap praise on Phil Foden, after the attacking midfielder made his first Premier League start in the 2-0 win over Cardiff on Wednesday evening.
The teenage prospect had only previously featured for the Cityzens in the cup competitions from the first whistle, but he was handed his first league start by Pep Guardiola against the Bluebirds and he performed excellently.
442oons have charted the entire career of Man City’s main man Sergio Aguero through song in the hilarious video below…
Despite being just 18 years of age, Foden slotted in seamlessly in an attack littered with world-class talent, and was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet after a number of chances went begging – he hit the post with a well-taken second half effort.
The City academy graduate had five shots on Neil Etheridge’s goal, and also made three key passes on a night where he took a big step in his development.
Let’s see what the City fans on Twitter have been saying about the teenager’s performance…
Great. Really should have had a goal though. And an assist if Laporte directs the header better. Great performance though.

18 years old and looks as if he surely belongs on our top shelf side. Wonderful. Future of city.

Yes was an amazing performance just a shame the gods were against him and didn’t give him the perfect full debut. Phil, you are already a legend, never stop believing
