Phil Foden sends Man City team news hint ahead of Wolves fixture
Phil Foden has hinted he could feature in Manchester City’s Premier League game against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night.
The midfielder was a 58th-minute substitute against the Brewers and netted within four minutes of coming on.
It was his second home goal at the Etihad after breaking his home duck in the FA Cup victory against Rotherham.
Foden has played 91 minutes of Premier League football this season across eight appearances and sent a cryptic tweet on Friday which raised suggestions that he could feature against Wolves.
“Bring on Monday night,” the England under-21 international tweeted, accompanied by a picture of the celebration following his goal against Burton.
City have made a remarkable start to 2019 with 18 goals in three games, the first two of which came in the 2-1 defeat of Liverpool that set down a marker in the Premier League title race.
The Blues were 10 points adrift of Jurgen Klopp‘s side on December 30 after losing three Premier League games in four – a total that the previous 70 fixtures had amassed.
Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sané were on target against the Anfield outfit, but Liverpool supporters believed City had grown the grass at the Etihad to disrupt their game plan – something Pep Guardiola strenuously denied.
“I’m not the green-keeper, I never did that,” the City manager said. “If they want to play quick, we want to play quicker. Always we try to put water [on the grass] but it’s not as necessary here because we get a lot of rain.
“We want to cut the field all the 10 years, it’s better conditions for both teams. When this happens, you do the best for opponents.
“We have to respect them with the rules. I never speak with the groundsman.”
