Phil Foden Becomes The Youngest Player To Win The Premier League

Phil Foden has marked his name in Premier League history after becoming the youngest player to win the league, knocking former City and Arsenal left-back Gael Clichy off his perch in the process.

The Under 17 World Cup winner did not feature from the bench in home games against Huddersfield and Brighton and was not given a winners' medal for the trophy ceremony a week ago despite being involved in the celebrations.

However, having been brought on as a late substitute in the final day trip to Southampton, along with fellow youngster Brahim Diaz, the two have made five Premier League appearances and are now owed a medal.

At 17 years and 350 days, boyhood blue Foden is the youngest player to pick up a medal.

In addition to getting 100 points in the final minutes of the season, City will be buzzing that Foden will be able to add the coveted medal to go with his Under 17 World Cup Golden Ball and BBC Sports Personality of the Year award.

What a few months it's been for the youngster, who has an incredibly bright future ahead of him.

Congratulations, Phil.
