The graduate of City academy, he demonstrated remarkable prowess by contributing 21 goals and 10 assists for his teammates across all competitions.

“There aren’t really any outstanding candidates at Arsenal or Liverpool, so Phil Foden is one name in the frame. I also think that Ollie Watkins should be in the conversation given the season he is having for Aston Villa,” Barnes said while speaking to Getting Casino.

“Cole Palmer, from an individual perspective, he has done really well, but his club are languishing in mid-table. He has been outstanding for his club, but does he deserve the individual award given Chelsea’s form? I’m not so sure. I think Phil Foden is probably the main candidate.”

Interestingly, Barnes is not the only one who thinks Phil Foden deserves the award for his contribution to his team this season.
