We assess the latest Phil Foden to score odds against Everton, as the Citizens continue to put Premier League opponents to the sword.
Pep Guardiola's side have shown no signs of letting up in their pursuit of a fourth consecutive Premier League title. Five consecutive wins have shot City up to second in the table. Now, the reigning champions are just two points behind league leaders Liverpool.
Goals have been a welcome addition to the Citizens' rampant recent form. During their five-match winning streak, City have struck 11 goals.
Foden has been a key contributor during this impressive run. The midfielder showcased his goalscoring confidence with a ruthless hat-trick at Brentford last time out.
With the England international hitting top form, we assess his value in the Man City goalscorer odds vs Everton on Saturday.
Phil Foden to score odds vs Everton
Anytime goalscorer vs Everton – 2/1
Foden emerged as the unlikely goal source for City during Erling Haaland’s absence in December and January.
Since the Citizen’s 4-0 triumph over Fluminense, Foden has scored seven goals in eight matches in all competitions. During this spell, only striker Julian Alvarez has matched the playmaker’s contributions – also with seven goals scored.
Four of Foden’s goals in his recent purple patch have come in the Premier League. The 23-year-old was on the scoresheet to help City comeback from a goal down to win 3-1 at Everton in December.
The midfield maestro continued to show his goalscoring quality in a superb all-round display at Brentford on Monday. After trailing 1-0 after 20 minutes, a Foden-led City raced back to win 3-1. Foden volleyed in the leveller before half time, headed in a second and tucked home a well-taken third to secure the three points.
Following this treble, Foden now sits second in City’s top scorer charts for 2023/24. With scoring momentum behind him, the midfielder will be confident of striking against an Everton side that conceded six goals in their last two against the Citizens.
First goalscorer odds for Phil Foden vs Everton – 7/1
Foden could also emerge as an early goal threat for City against Everton. The 23-year-old has shown a knack for netting first for his side this season.
The England international has struck first for the Citizens in his last two goalscoring outings. Foden has also got City off the mark in three of six matches when he has scored in the Premier League.
Generally, the Citizens don’t wait around to get off the mark either. In three of their last four matches, City have scored first within the opening 26 minutes. Guardiola’s side have also hit the net in the opening half an hour in three consecutive home matches.
The signs look positive for an early Foden goal on Saturday, especially as Everton have shipped four goals within the opening 25 minutes in their last six league matches.
With City creating early chances in the Premier League and given Foden’s goalscoring confidence, an early chance for the 23-year-old could beckon at the Etihad.
