Manchester City

manager, Pep Guardiola, believes

Phil Foden

is an amazing player, who has the potential to improve for the better. With seven goals and five assists under his name for the current season, Foden continues to impress at both club and international level.

"He is playing like he played always, high standards in all departments,"


told the press ahead of their

Brighton and Hove Albion


"He still has big margins to improve because it would be bad news if he could not improve at the age he is, but from day one I have been delighted, especially with his behaviour. The quality will do the rest."

The Spaniard continued on their upcoming game with the hope of advancing their position on the table, adding:

"Brighton are a joy to watch, a joy to analyse."

"At the same time, when you see them you are concerned about the quality. I said to the players that we will have to be in the highest standards to complete against them. They have better stats [than their league position] in all the departments except the final third.”

"I am a big fan of Graham Potter. We faced him for the first time with Swansea. Everyone [in Potter's teams] plays in his position and the ball comes to them. They have the courage to play. I like a lot how they play and it will be a good test after this amount of games."

Talking about their 13-match unbeaten run, he said:

"The momentum can arrive and disappear in one instant.”

"We cannot forget the teams we beat recently especially in Premier League and Carabao Cup - two strong teams away and we did well - but the momentum can disappear, we have to do it again. Especially for the way we are playing."
