Defending Premier League Champions City Have A New King And Hero In Town, He Is Only 21

Manchester City, the Premier League's defending champions, had to find a new king with the departure of their all-time leading goalscorer Sergio Aguero in August. Phil Foden, a 21-year-old England midfielder, has climbed to the throne as City's new king and hero after a two-month wait. He scored two goals and added another assist as City defeated Brighton by four goals to one in the Premier League yesterday. 

He made three successful dribbles, five crucial passes, three major opportunities created, and two key interceptions during his man of the match performance. 

With those two goals and an assist, Foden now has five goals and three assists in all competitions this season. 

With his assistance, City are now just 19 points behind champions league winners Chelsea in the Premier League rankings. 

They are also in second place in their Champions League group, with 6 points, behind Paris, who have 7. 

They are favourites to win all trophies this season, because to their new king Foden's excellent form.
