Phil Foden: It’s the best form I’ve had in a long time

Phil Foden explained how his hat-trick against Brentford showcased his peak performance for Manchester City.

Phil Foden netted all three goals in City’s 3-1 win against Brentford on Monday night, overturning an early lead by Neal Maupay. It marked one of Foden’s standout performances this season at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Following the victory against Brentford, Manchester City is now just two points behind leaders Liverpool. Pep Guardiola’s team has a game in hand, scheduled against Brentford on February 20.

Phil Foden attributed his recent good form to playing in his preferred central position. Alongside Julian Alvarez, Kevin De Bruyne, and Bernardo Silva, he supported Erling Haaland in City’s attack against Brentford. His post-game comments underscored his satisfaction with the role assigned by Guardiola.

“I am really delighted with my performances at the moment.” Phil Foden told Sky Sports. “I think I’ve played a lot of minutes more inside now where I want to be.

“So yeah, I am delighted with the way I am playing. It’s probably the best form I’ve had for a long time, consistently, so long may it continue.

“It would help if I played one position and learned that position every game, but I am a person who adapts and plays a lot of positions when needed. I know in this team I am going to do that, play a lot of positions, so I am going to have to be ready.

“I am just enjoying playing anywhere in the middle, that is where I see myself and that’s where I see myself playing the best football. So, hopefully, I can keep getting more game time in the middle and hopefully keep playing there as long as I can.”
