Phil Foden named Premier League player of the season

If Pep Guardiola described him in March as “best player in the Premier League” It is not by chance. The words of the Skyblues coach proved prophetic since the attacking midfielder was indeed awarded the title of best player of the season. He obtained this prestigious distinction thanks to the public vote, combined with the plebiscite of a panel of experts. This is the 4th time in a row (and the 5th consecutive season) that a Manchester City player has been crowned after Kevin De Bruyne (2019/2020 and 2021/2022), Ruben Dias (2020/2021) and Erling Haaland (2022 /2023).

He is ahead of strong competition embodied by his teammate Haaland but also Alexander Isak (Newcastle), Martin Odegaard (Arsenal), Cole Palmer (Chelsea), Declan Rice (Arsenal), Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool) and Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa). The 23-year-old Englishman has shone brightly this season, scoring 17 times and providing 8 assists in 34 league matches. He will have the opportunity to improve his statistics tomorrow during the 38th and final day of the championship with the reception of West Ham, and to win a new Premier League title. It would already be his 6th.
