Phil Foden, the hat-trick hero, Pep Guardiola says

Following his hat-trick in Manchester City’s decisive 4-1 victory over Aston Villa on Wednesday, which pulled the champions level with Liverpool on 67 points, one behind Arsenal, a jubilant Pep Guardiola declared that Phil Foden had “goals in his veins”.

At the Etihad Stadium, Rodri gave City the lead. Twenty minutes in, Jhon Durán equalized, and then Foden took control, scoring twice in first-half added time and then again on 62 and 69 minutes. It was the second treble of the season for the 23-year-old playmaker.

Guardiola remarked, “He has to use this; he has goals in his veins.”

When he scores three goals, what can I say? Although he struggled at first, he got better. Phil has a sense of goal when he plays in the central positions.

“He’s free to do as he pleases. We are aware of his exceptional skill level, but he remains receptive and needs to gain further understanding of the game.

Kevin De Bruyne

As Kevin De Bruyne was rested, Foden filled in as City’s number ten. This season, he has scored 21 goals in all competitions, which is a record for him. How many could Guardiola finish up with? was the question posed. “Our performance as a team will determine it,” the manager stated.

Even if Phil is in the latter third and we play well together. He won’t score goals if we play garbage. Phil won’t be able to score goals for himself. He requires the team’s process.

When it came to City’s title aspirations, Guardiola was questioned. “What Arsenal and Liverpool do is beyond of our control. Thus, it will be challenging. Guardiola mockingly suggested that Erling Haaland’s rest was because he agreed with Roy Keane’s assessment that the striker’s overall contribution is comparable to that of a League Two player.
