Phil Foden makes history after stunning opener during Man City vs West Ham

Phil Foden makes history after stunning opener during Man City vs West Ham

Manchester City are in Premier League action against West Ham United.

Phil Foden has made history after scoring for Manchester City against West Ham United.

On Sunday afternoon, the Premier League season draws to a close with City and Arsenal bidding to win the title.

In order for Arsenal to win the title, they had to win against Everton at the Emirates Stadium and hope West Ham can take points off City.

However, the Gunners title dreams were taken a knock inside two minutes as Foden scored a stunning opener.

The Englishman unleashed an unstoppable drive on the edge of the penalty area into the top corner.

With that goal, Foden has made a piece of history.

As reported by Opta Joe, who wrote on social media: “6 - Phil Foden has scored six goals from outside the box in the Premier League this season; the most by a @ManCity player in a single campaign in the competition. Super.”

Reacting to Foden’s goal whilst commentating for Sky Sports, former Manchester United defender Gary Neville said: “Phil Foden was voted the best player in the Premier League and he's just shown us why.”

Meanwhile, ex-Everton man Leon Osman said on BBC Radio 5 Live: “Oh wow. This young man Phil Foden just keeps doing wonderful things. Just gets better and better every time you see him.

“He waits for the move to develop, he is so effective from this central role. He lets the pass from Bernardo Silva run across his body and unleashes a strike with his left foot. Areola has absolutely no chance.”

With 18 minutes on the clock, Foden doubled City’s lead with a close-range finish after Jeremy Doku’s cross.

Neville added: “Pinpoint from Phil Foden and he has had a real impact on this game. I don't know how he squeezes the ball between the two centre-backs. He has three men around him and he helps it into the corner.

“Foden makes no mistake!”
