Impressive Phil Foden statistic suggests he’s the perfect successor to David Silva

The 19-year-old replaced Kevin De Bruyne in the 76th minute of the match with the game arguably over as a contest, but Foden threw himself straight into the action, creating a remarkable amount of chances in a short space of time.

In fact, Phil Foden created the third most chances by any player for Manchester City, despite only playing a quarter of an hour. Only two other players created more chances than the England U21 international – Kevin De Bruyne (3) and Bernardo Silva (4).

Surely it’s now only a matter of time before Manchester City fans get their wish of seeing Foden start more frequently in the Premier League, especially after today’s brief stint against Aston Villa adding to his impressive showing against Atalanta in midweek.
