Player to Watch: Phil Foden

This time last year there were doubts about Phil Foden's future as a Manchester City player but the 23-year-old has well and truly put to bed those doubts this season. Foden has become an integral part of the City starting eleven and a week ago he scored a hat-trick to help City come from behind to beat Brentford. Can he now show his top form on the European stage?
