Gary Neville showered praise on Manchester City attacker Phil Foden following his outstanding performance in the team’s 3-1 victory over Manchester United.

Despite Marcus Rashford’s stunning opening goal, Foden led City’s comeback with a remarkable brace, followed by Erling Haaland adding a goal to the tally.

The first goal from Foden was a thing of beauty, as he skillfully cut inside on his left foot and placed the ball into the top corner of the net.

Neville, in awe of Foden’s cold-bloodedness, acknowledged his brilliance during the match.

Foden’s second goal demonstrated his cleverness as he made a precise run inside the box before calmly slotting the ball past the United goalkeeper. Neville, tipping his hat to Foden, hailed him as the match-winner of the derby clash.

Despite being a lifelong City fan, Foden exhibited great composure on the derby day, earning praise from Neville for his ability to singlehandedly secure the victory for his team.

“He gives Antony a cuddle and he is [the] man of the match, Phil Foden. He’s the match-winner”, Neville said on Sky Sports.

Despite being a boyhood Manchester City supporter, Phil Foden showcased his composure on derby day to singlehandedly win his side the contest against Manchester United, according to Gary Neville.

“Sometimes, derby matches can be emotional and passionate affairs. But for local players, those who have come through the academy, it means a lot. Phil Foden is as cold as ice.”

“Today, the special talent that for years has been described as potential and promise is here to stay. He’s such a wonderful player. It’s important it’s him. City go into the title run-in in a strong position.”

Foden’s exceptional performance was a testament to his importance to the team, proving that he can be depended on in crucial moments.

While many expected other big names in the squad to shine, Foden rose to the occasion and delivered a standout performance that could go down in history if City clinches the Premier League title.

In conclusion, Neville’s admiration for Foden’s skill and composure highlighted the young player’s growing influence and importance to Manchester City.

Foden’s stellar display against Manchester United showcased his potential and solidified his position as a key player for the team in their pursuit of success.
