Although delighted to have found the target, Foden admitted it was a frustrating result for the team.

“It’s not a good point. We wanted three but we’re not a team who will sulk a lot,” Foden reflected. “We’ll get over it tomorrow, look at things we can improve on, and go ahead.

“I tried to be lively and make a difference. I got the goal but unfortunately, we couldn’t get the second.

The Englishman then claimed that City improved in the second half after Pep Guardiola’s speech at half-time “We came out second half playing lot quicker and being more aggressive. We need to work on finishing more chances and we should be OK.

“We started slow in the first half – we weren’t passing quick enough around the back and didn’t have a good tempo

“The manager spoke well at half time and more chances fell to us. I enjoy scoring and it was nice to get the goal. I love this club and love playing for them.”

The young English midfielder is enjoying his new lease of life at Manchester. After the departure of David Silva and the absence of important midfielders, Foden is getting far more chances this season.
He has repaid the faith shown in him by Guardiola by scoring three times and assisting another two times in seven league appearances in this campaign.
