Following Man City’s 5-0 victory over Newcastle on Wednesday evening, plenty of Sky Blues are saying one thing – that midfield dynamo Phil Foden is well on course to become the successful heir to David Silva.
Foden, who missed two chances during the match from close range, still put in a great shift – being thoroughly involved in two of our early goals.
Can Phil Foden succeed David Silva?
No, look in the transfer market
The Englishman, for Gabriel Jesus’ opener, provided David Silva with a chance to put the ball on a plate for the Brazilian – going on to play Kevin De Bruyne in round the back so he could feed it to Riyad Mahrez for our second of the match.
As a result, flocking to the 20-year-old’s tweet, many Sky Blues have lavished him with praise whilst claiming he is Silva’s heir – find all of their best comments down below.

Despite not scoring tonight, having a ready made replacement for the master is a dream come true for City fans. In 10 years @PhilFoden will have shown that he is everything @21LVA was and more. Mark my words.
