Manchester City headed back to the top of the table after a 1-0 victory over Tottenham courtesy Phil Foden, who netted his first Premier League goal on Saturday.
The teenager headed Sergio Aguero’s knock down from close range after the Argentine striker utilized Bernardo Silva’s cross.
Pep Guardiola said he was a genius for playing Foden in what was only his second Premier League start and seeing him score in just 5 minutes.
His words, “How good is the manager? I am a genius. He scored a goal,”
“Phil is an incredible player. We needed this capacity to press high and he has quality to arrive in the box and every time he plays he scores a goal or has chances to score goals.
“He has the ability to play in small spaces. It’s an incredible experience for him and I trust him a lot.”
“The last two days have been really tough for us,”
“We could have lost the Premier League today — after Wednesday it was really tough. As a footballer, I could not have done what my players have done today. The title is still in our hands.”
On KDB’s injury “It was something muscular, which is normal after injuries and three or four games of a lot of minutes with no preparation,” Guardiola said.
“Maybe he will miss the four games and the FA Cup final. I don’t know how big the impact is. We will see tomorrow but I think for the next game, he will be out.”
