Phil Foden and Jude Bellingham's stats compared and there's a clear winner this season

Phil Foden and Jude Bellingham's stats compared and there's a clear winner this season

Phil Foden and Jude Bellingham have both been in fine form this season.

Phil Foden and Jude Bellingham’s stats from this season have been compared and there is a clear winner.

Since joining Real Madrid from Borussia Dortmund during the summer transfer window, Bellingham has become one of the best players in world football.

The 20-year-old has so far scored 20 goals and assisted 10 in 32 appearances across all competitions for the La Liga giants.

Foden meanwhile has hit form for Manchester City as they continue to hunt for another Treble.

In 44 appearances so far this season, Foden has recorded 21 goals and 10 assists.

As Euro 2024 edges closer, the talk will be who out of Bellingham or Foden will be selected to start as England’s number 10 by Gareth Southgate.

According to Squawka, Bellingham has outperformed Foden in the majority of the per-90-minute stats, including passes attempted, passing accuracy, aerial duel success and ground duel success.

Bellingham also averages a better goal per 90 rate than Foden.

However, Foden averages 0.3 assists per 90 minutes, which is better than Bellingham’s 0.2.


Speaking after scoring a hat-trick against Aston Villa on Wednesday night, Foden said: “I’m loving my football; playing with a smile on my face.

“I’m just trying to help the team because I know I’m capable of scoring goals. Today I showed that. I set myself better than last season. Trying to get more goal contributions. I’m up this year. Doing well.”

Foden added: “I see myself as a technical player in the pockets and out wide I can do that job. But I prefer in the middle. This year I’m growing into the game. The manager spoke about showing rhythm and slowing the game down. I’ve added that to my game as well. Before I was going so quick; attacking every action. Now I’m getting the balance just right.

“I always try and arrive in the box. That’s where the goals are at and you can get at least five a season arriving in the box late. I still have a lot to improve on and I’m still working on that position.”
