Phil Foden has named his toughest ever opponent – and he could come face-to-face with him in the Champions League final.

The 20-year-old has enjoyed a stunning season with Manchester City and is now one of the first names on Pep Guardiola’s team-sheet.

Foden has also forced his way into Gareth Southgate’s England squad and seems assured of being called up for Euro 2020 action.

City have romped to the Premier League title and Carabao Cup already this campaign and hope to end it with Champions League glory on Saturday 29 May.

But one man who could be lining up against them for Chelsea that night is N’Golo Kante.

And Foden has now revealed that the Frenchman is the hardest opposition player he has faced so far in his fledgling career.

He told Sky Sports: “He’s probably the most obvious one, but it’s Kante.

“He’s just everywhere. You think you’ve got away from him but he’s always just by your side.

“He does everything. He runs everywhere. He’s such a great player.

“I’d probably say he’s my toughest opponent I’ve played against.”
