Manchester City’s Gundogan replacement was hiding in plain sight the whole time

Phil Foden has stepped up to fill the void left by Ilkay Gundogan’s departure from Manchester City to Barcelona last summer.

Initially, there were concerns that City’s squad would be weakened without Gundogan, but Foden’s performances this season have shown that he can take on the responsibilities Gundogan once carried.

Foden’s statistics this season include scoring 24 goals and providing 10 assists, highlighting his growing impact on the team.

His maturity and ability to adapt to different roles within the team have been crucial to City’s success. Foden’s progression into a midfield role, as opposed to his previous positions on the flanks, suits his game and showcases his versatility.

The Englishman has also proven his ability to score important goals when Manchester City needs them most. His brace in City’s recent 4-0 victory over Brighton underlines his effectiveness in high-stakes situations. Earlier in the season, he scored hat-tricks against Brentford and Aston Villa, contributing significantly to City’s victories.

While many thought Manchester City would need to enter the transfer market to replace Gundogan, Foden’s emergence as a key player has negated that necessity.

His strong performances suggest that he has taken on the mantle left by the club legend and may leave his own significant mark on Manchester City.
