Foden has been spoken of in glowing terms at City for some time but his introduction to the first team, due to an abundance of quality in the squad, has been gradual. "He's special", Guardiola said, before going on to tell a story about how, when he first arrived at City in 2016, the club's director of football, Txiki Begiristain, had implored him to come and watch this slight, shy teenager from Stockport. But Phil would have remained the same player for me, even if we didn't win. I said: "'You are right, Txiki - this player is good'".

"You can see that those games are very intense and it is handsome to play in those games because you get the experience, you have the crowd that are behind you and they just push you". As quick as you go up, as quickly you can go down.

"Sometimes you have to handle those situations but we don't have any doubts".

'Every player wants to fight for the team and we're unstoppable with that attitude.

Further to this, the Manchester Evening News revealed that the 27-year-old was conspicuously absent from the side's training session on Sunday, with both De Bruyne and left-back Benjamin Mendy not featuring on a training video published on City's social media accounts. He has something special.

"As a footballer, I could not have done what my players have done today".

Encuesta: ¿Quién ha ganado el debate a cuatro de RTVE?
No hay duda, Pedro Sánchez ha sido el gran perdedor del debate que este lunes 22 de abril se ha producido en TVE . El mismo se iniciará con una intervención inicial de un minuto para candidato.

Asked if he coached any players like Phil Foden during an illustrious spell at Barcelona, Pep Guardiola responded: "No".

Foden provided that with an energetic and creative performance.

"Managing is not a book like you follow the rules".

City face arch-rivals Manchester United, who are unbeaten at home in their last 14 league matches, at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Foden said: "It was a bit of a surprise but I was always ready to take the opportunity". "I love to play against them, it is a game I look at, I learn a lot and I gain experience". In his post-match interview with Sky Sports, he explained that he wanted to give it to Foden, who initially refused, smiling but embarrassed, like when a grandparent gives you £50 just to be nice, before thinking "actually yes, give it to me" and accepting the kind gesture.
