As reported by OptaJoe On Twitter, English sensation Phil Foden made history during Manchester City’s win over Tottenham tonight.
Foden has been one of the Premier League players of the season so far. While Man City slowed down locks, Foden was acting from day one, and his teammates finally followed suit and City was now a firm favorite to win the title.
Guardiola used it sporadically before this campaign, raising questions about whether Man City was the best place for him to become a star, questions that have now been answered.
As if you need more evidence of the complete and utter triumph that Foden’s career in Man City has been to date, take a look at this statistic shared by OptaJoe on Twitter, showing how successful his team has been when he’s on the field.
No wonder he leveled a City teammate in this department, either …
50 – Phil Foden achieved his 50th Premier League victory tonight in what was only his 59th appearance, equaling the record for the fewest games required to reach this milestone in the competition’s history (Aymeric Laporte, also 59 games). Superstar. pic.twitter.com/wqkWwOcMIn
