Phil Foden showed the world his class and quality at Anfield last night.

The young Englishman took apart the Liverpool defense to give City their first win at Anfield last night after 18 long years.

While the world is raving about Foden’s class, Pep admitted he was overjoyed to have Phil in his team but also cautioned the need for him to keep growing.

Asked about the Englishman’s performance, Guardiola told Sky Sports: “He’s a guy who keeps the ball really well, he’s really aggressive.

“But still he is so young, he doesn’t understand in some positions what he has to do, so in the first half he was not in the right positions.

“We worked but he is a little bit distracted sometimes in these positions. Playing wide is more easy for him but he will learn.

“After that, the assist for the second goal and then scoring the fourth goal, we know what a huge talent he is, but he’s still young and we are still hopeful that he can understand that he can improve, because in the first half he was not in the position that we needed and that’s why we suffered in some moments to get the control.”

He added: “What’s important is the three points. Of course I’m so proud of the guys. Anfield with people and without is completely different. It’s good, especially when we miss the penalty, concede the goal.

“We react with huge personality. Raheem Sterling, phenomenal. The commitment from everyone. Three points, grateful, happy, but tomorrow feet on the grass and thinking Swansea.

“We are not one player. Gundogan started to be one of the top scorers, we have to do it as a team. We have an incredible captain. In this period, to do wins in a row is so difficult.”
