Phil Foden may not receive the same amount of attention as Kevin De Bruyne or Erling Haaland, but his brilliance should not be overlooked. Last season, Neal Maupay had a poor goals per shot record until he scored three goals in three games for Brentford, outperforming even Haaland. His revival coincided with the boosting of striker Ivan Toney. The recent game against Manchester City showcased Toney’s intelligence and influence, as he set up Maupay’s goal by cleverly avoiding the ball. Brentford’s performance against City also revealed the vulnerability of the usually formidable City defense, with several chances created by Brentford players. Foden, in particular, stood out by capitalizing on a weak Pinnock header to score the equalizer. With key players like Foden, Julian Alvarez, Bernardo Silva, and Jeremy Doku excelling in the absence of more prominent teammates, Manchester City is in a strong position this season. While the spotlight may be on De Bruyne and Haaland, the contributions of other world-class players like Foden should not be overlooked. The team’s success is a testament to the overall quality and depth of the squad. Foden, in particular, has been instrumental in their performance this season, despite not receiving as much attention.
