Foden, 20, has thrived in the City midfield this season and scored 13 times and registered nine assists in 42 appearances.
And the City starlet showed exactly why Pep Guardiola thinks so highly of him in his side's 2-1 victory over Aston Villa at Villa Park on Wednesday.
The City midfielder's all-round performance left fans singing his praises on social media, saying that he has been "absolutely sensational."

However, fans believe that Foden should be in the conversation for one of the world's best and have argued that the England international is better than both of them.
"Put Foden in at PSG in the French league and he'd have Mbappe numbers from midfield. He's a f*****g baller," one fan tweeted.
Someone else wrote: "Foden is actually so good, him. Haaland and Mbappe will be rivals for the Ballon d'Or in the future."
Another fan added: "Foden actually might be generational. God help us all for the next decade if City add another generational talent like Haaland or Mbappe."
While a fourth Twitter user added: "I'd rather have Foden than Haaland or Mbappe. He's going to be a machine."
Phil Foden is better than Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.- :flag_et: (@_CFCLeo) April 21, 2021
