“We keep surprising everyone” – Manchester City star points towards resilience behind staggering away form



| Last Updated:


Phil Foden has credited the Manchester City squad’s resilience when discussing their continuous trend of coming from behind away from home to win in recent matches.

Monday night at Brentford became the latest showcase of Manchester City’s ability to never back down from a losing position, having inflicted defeat on Thomas Frank’s squad despite Neal Maupay’s first-half opener.

Phil Foden’s three goals built around the half-time interval at the Brentford Community Stadium moved the reigning champions to within just two points of Jurgen Klopp’s team, whilst also holding a game in hand on those around them in the division.

Quizzed on Manchester City’s successive ability to come from behind away from home to win in the Premier League, Phil Foden pointed towards the team’s ‘resilience’ that keeps on surprising teams across the division.

“Resilience,” Foden highlighted briefly before continuing, “we keep proving it season by season.”

“We keep surprising everyone how we’re keeping our standards high and it’s down to the manager and the fantastic group of players that we have, the togetherness when things aren’t going right to bounce back.”

Despite a hugely successful run of results for Manchester City, Phil Foden has insisted that he and his teammates will be pushed right to the very end this campaign in the hunt for an unprecedented fourth successive Premier League title.

“I watched the game (between Arsenal and Liverpool), it’s going to be a tight one,” Foden said.

“Liverpool and Arsenal are two top teams doing really well, so I think they’re going to push us to the end, so we have to try and not drop points and try and win all our games really.”

Manchester City, despite the joys of Monday night, will be hoping for a more routine and straightforward contest on Saturday lunchtime, as they welcome Everton to the Etihad Stadium in the weekend’s early kick-off.

The clash with Sean Dyche’s men precedes a UEFA Champions League meeting with FC Copenhagen next week in the first-leg of a last-16 tie that the current holders of Europe’s premier club competition will feel confident in progressing through across the two matches.
