Man City youngster Phil Foden backed to emulate David Silva and ‘light up Premier League’ for years

Phil Foden has the qualities to emulate David Silva at Man City and become a Premier League great, Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson believes.
Palace travel to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon looking to build on Thursday’s goalless draw at Arsenal.

City sit just four points off the top of the Premier League table heading into the weekend’s fixtures and have a game in hand on both Manchester United and Liverpool – who meet at Anfield on Sunday.
Foden hit the only goal of the game as Pep Guardiola’s side beat Brighton on Wednesday to extend their winning run to four games, having taken 20 points from a possible 24 since losing to Tottenham on November 21.
The 20-year-old has impressed this season and is starting to play regularly having had to wait patiently for his chance.
“He has been very well managed by the club and had been integrated into the first-team in a very clever way, a very sensible way,” former England manager Hodgson said of Foden.

“Of course you can do that when you have so many other good players around you – you can afford to leave a player of his quality out because you have got other fantastic players in your squad.
“I think they have done it very well, he has obviously worked very hard at his game and has got better, as everyone knew he would with Premier League and Champions League experience.
“Now he is in the international set-up he is going to get better and better, it is fantastic really that after losing a player of David Silva’s quality, who really lit the league up over a long period of time, they have now managed to find another player from their own ranks who is looking likely to take over that mantle.”
