Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka and Cole Palmer's stats compared and there's a clear winner

Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka and Cole Palmer's stats compared and there's a clear winner

All three are superb but one is clear of the others.

We've compared the stats of Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka and Cole Palmer from this season and there is a clear winner.

England are one of the favourites to win the European Championships in Germany this summer, and its easy to see why.

Gareth Southgate has got a supremely talented squad at his disposal, including a group of young players who are performing week-in week-out in the Premier League.

Bukayo Saka, Cole Palmer and Phil Foden are three of the most talented young attackers England has ever produced, with the latter in particular a generational talent.

Foden put on another masterclass on Sunday with a two-goal performance in Manchester City's 3-1 defeat of neighbours Manchester United.

Afterwards, Pep Guardiola argued that his young star is the best player in the Premier League.

But with Saka and Palmer also having great campaigns with Arsenal and Chelsea respectively, it begs the question: Who is the best?

Well, the answer is clear.

Saka has scored 13 Premier League goals so far this season, while Foden has found the back of the net on 11 occasions and Palmer on 10. All three have provided seven assists.

However, all 11 of Foden's goals have been from open play, while four of Saka's and five of Palmer's have been from the penalty spot.

Palmer and Saka are known for taking on and beating defenders, but Foden has actually done it more this season.

Per 90 minutes Foden has a take-on success rate of 52.17 per cent, with Saka registering 44.87 and Palmer 48.39.

The defensive side of Foden's game is often-overlooked, but it is something that makes him a key part of Pep Guardiola's City side.

Foden is stronger in duels too: the 23-year-old has won 54.21 per cent of the ground duels he has contested this season, more than both Saka (50.57) and Palmer (41.06).

As might be expected given City's style of play, Foden has attempted and completed more passes per 90 minutes than his England teammates, while his pass accuracy of 88.7 per cent is way above Saka (83.04) and Palmer (84.48).

That is especially impressive considering that Foden has often played in a more central role than the other two this season.

All three are terrific players and will hopefully play key roles for England at the Euros.

However, when answering the question of who is better, the City star is the clear winner.
