|Guardiola Hails 19 Years Old Foden After Big Win Against Arsenal by odun360(m): 9:08pm On Dec 15, 2019|
Pep Guardiola has explained the qualities that Phil Foden will bring to his Man City side against Arsenal.
Foden will make his first Premier League start of the season at the Emirates on Sunday as City look to get back on track following last weekend's loss to Manchester United.
City sit in third place in the league and are 17 points off pace setters Liverpool at the top of the table, so claiming the three points against the Gunners is vital.
It hasn't been helped by the fact that captain David Silva has once again been ruled out after picking up a knock in the derby but, following his goal against Dinamo Zagreb in midweek, Foden has been given the nod.
"Because I want what he has," Guardiola told Sky Sports when asked why Foden is staring the game.
"Between the lines, how he attacks in the final third and his intensity on and without the ball, because he played so good last game we decide to play with him."
It's also Foden's first start away from home in the league and the 19-year-old has admitted he has a few nerves.
"A little bit yeah obviously,it's good to have a few nerves," he said.
"It's the hardest league in the world so to get a start today means everything.
"I have to keep proving myself every time I play, whether it's 10 minutes or the full game, I have to show that I can play at this level and that's what I try and do.
"I'm confident in my ability and I'll try and show that on the pitch today, lets see what happens."
