Phil Foden named Young Player of the Season

Phil Foden has been named the 2021/22 Hublot Young Player of the Season.

Foden retains the award that he won last season and becomes the first player to win it in successive campaigns.

The 21-year-old has produced nine goals and five assists in 27 appearances to help Manchester City close in on the Premier League title.

Indeed, his average of a goal or an assist every 146 minutes this season is the best of any player aged 21 or under to have played at least 500 minutes.

“I am very proud to have won this award for a second season in a row,” Foden told the club’s official website.

“I have been really happy with my performances this season and it has been great to contribute to this team in what will hopefully be another successful year for us all.

“To be nominated alongside so many great players is an honour as they have all had great seasons for their clubs.”

Foden will now look to end the season on a high against Aston Villa on Sunday, when Man City know a win would guarantee them their sixth Premier League Trophy.

Foden wins the award after he received the most combined votes from the public and a Premier League panel.

He topped an eight-man shortlist of players aged 23 or under at the start of the campaign, beating Trent Alexander-Arnold, Conor Gallagher, Tyrick Mitchell, Mason Mount, Aaron Ramsdale, Declan Rice and Bukayo Saka.
