It was the 18-year-old's first goal in the Premier League as he became the first player born in the 2000s to score in the top-flight for City.

Speaking after the victory, he said: "I would like to hand it over to Phil because I honestly think he deserves it".

But they could not find a way past Ederson and City held on to a valuable three points.

Bernardo Silva clipped a lovely ball into the box, Sergio Aguero headed the ball across goal and Foden wa on hand to head into the empty net.

Manchester City got revenge on Tottenham Hotspur as they emerged 1-0 winners in their Premier League game on Saturday afternoon.

Foden headed the victor as the champions beat Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday to move back to the top of the league, a position they relinquished when Liverpool beat Cardiff on Sunday.

The leadership question appears to be a short-term solution though, for Smith will part ways with the team some time shortly. Rajasthan are on the move and Delhi have been constantly improving and the contest is expected to be fought very closely.

"Unless I'm mistaken there are four more to go, we need four wins".

When Kevin De Bruyne's afternoon was cut short by injury, it was the Portuguese worldwide who stepped into the Belgian's shoes to ensure the reigning champions made their way back to the top of the table. "If we do this then people have got to start telling us we are one of the best teams".

Liverpool and Spurs are the two Premier League clubs in the Champions League semi-finals but both of them had to take really different paths to get to their eventual destination.

"When we won the league and we were miles in front, I think this will be better because we've actually had a challenge and someone fighting with us".

"It was a great win, great three points". It was very hard, we didn't have a lot of time to rest, and it was really warm outside. "He's a fantastic player".

The game comes with City two points behind league leaders Liverpool, who have played one game more, and a win in the "Theater of Dreams" would put Pep Guardiola's side a point clear of their title rivals with just three games left to play. Midfielder Eric Dier said: 'We have to win every game and we want to win every game.
