Phil Foden Now Better Than Chelsea Legend – Paul Scholes Admits

Paul Scholes admits that Phil Foden at the age of 23 is already a better player than a Premier League legend who played for Chelsea.

Phil Foden

Scholes, a former Manchester United player said with Foden’s performances and talents, he’s now a better player than Frank Lampard, although the former Blues player scored many important goals and Phil Foden is also getting there.

Foden continues to dominate the headlines with his performance against Manchester United over the weekend. The incredible man-of-the-match performance gave the City the 3 points after coming from behind to record a 3-1 win against the Red Devils.

The Englishman was at his best and the United defenders couldn’t find a way to stop him from putting the ball in the back of the net. With City trailing 1-0 to a Marcus Rashford stunner eight minutes goal, Foden levelled the score by cutting in from the right and lashing a powerful shot into the top corner with his left foot.

For the second goal of the Premier League champions, he brilliantly combined with Julian Alvarez to beat Andrew Onana and Erling Haaland made it 3-1 in stoppage time.

Phil Foden now has 18 goals and 11 assists for the Cityzens this campaign and Paul Scholes believes that he’s already a better player than Frank Lampard.

Speaking on Premier League Productions, he said: “Look, he’s a better footballer than Frank Lampard but Frank Lampard scored goals and won leagues for his club from midfield.

“You expect centre-forwards to do it. Haaland, you just expect his numbers, you expect Michael’s [Owen] numbers when the team is doing well.

“But from a midfield point of view, you’ve really got to take the game by the scruff of the neck and say: “Right, I’m going to get us back into this game, I’m going to win us leagues, I’m going to win us games!”
