Man City hero Phil Foden dubbed 'god' by Liam Gallagher as Roy Keane lauds England kid after Liverpool demolition

ROCKSTAR Liam Gallagher has dubbed Phil Foden 'god' after his sensational performance for Manchester City against Liverpool.

The 20-year-old produced a man of the match display in City's 4-1 thumping of Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, with the Englishman rounding off his superb 90 minutes with a wonderful goal late on.

And Gallagher, who is a die-hard Man City fan, hailed Foden's talent on social media.

He simply tweeted: "FODEN IS GOD."

Foden replied to Gallagher's tweet by adding: "Thank you LG."

After City's win, Foden said: "It's brilliant, every player wants to play in big games like this and we showed that courage from minute one.

"They made it so difficult for us but we showed our courage to play our football and keep going, and in the end it paid off.

"I struck it perfect [the goal] and I'm just happy to see it go in and help the team.

"It gives us every chance to go on and win [the title], but the job isn't done and we've got a long way to go. When you beat the champions everyone's confidence goes sky high, so it can only help us. We're just happy to win today."

Sky Sports pundit and ex-Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane was another who was thoroughly impressed with both Foden's display and the manner of his interview afterwards.

Keane said: “It was a great interview and the big word he used in that interview was ‘courage’.

"Man City showed courage today, bravery, wanting the ball, passing forward – Liverpool were the opposite.

"Liverpool, you talk about champions, they didn’t put up a fight in that second half.

"Man City were outstanding. Again, bravery, wanting the ball, by far the better team.

"They gifted Liverpool a way back into the game, but Liverpool never took it. If Liverpool could’ve won today, it would have been decent with the others slipping up, but what a weekend for Man City."

Foden's goal was his tenth of the season, making him the second youngest player in Europe's top five leagues to reach double figures in the 2020-21 campaign, behind only Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

Meanwhile, Man City are now five points ahead of nearest challengers Man Utd and also have a game in hand.
