Foden has worked his way into Guardiola’s plans with his performances, and is now drawing attention because of that.

He named both Lionel Messi and David Silva as players  e admires and wants to model his game on.

He said to Sky Sports: “David Silva, because I’ve seen him come through at City.

“He’s been a great player for us and I’ve really enjoyed watching him.

“Yeah, definitely [I want to be like him.]

“I watch him closely, he’s a great player and someone I want to be like in the future.

“Probably him and Lionel Messi. I’m my own player, but they are great players.

“They have great characters, the show that on the pitch, and impress me every time they play.”

Title challenge

City are of course keen to defend their title this season.

After winning the league at what can only be described as a canter last season, they are set to be pushed far more this time out.

Guardiola knows that, and wants his key players fit and firing.

The news that Kevin De Bruyne could be back for the fixture against Burnley is huge, and something that City fans are eagerly anticipating.
