  • Phil Foden has been named the Premier League Young Player of the Season
  • The Manchester City man beat the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold
  • City completed a clean sweep with Ruben Dias and Pep Guardiola also winning

Phil Foden named Premier League Young Player of the Season.

The England international won the accolade following a stunning breakthrough campaign in the senior Manchester City side.

Foden beat the likes of City team-mate Ruben Dias, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Illan Meslier, Marcus Rashford, Mason Mount, Declan Rice and Bukayo Saka.

The 21-year-old was involved in 14 Premier League goals in 17 starts and 11 substitute appearances across the campaign.

He broke through after being given his chance in the side by Pep Guardiola – who helped City complete a clean sweep by winning the Manager of the Season award.

Foden established himself as a key member of the City midfield following the departure of David Silva.

Foden becomes the second recipient of the award, presented to the best player aged 23 or younger, after Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold won the prize last season.
