“It’s very satisfying to score in the biggest competition. It’s always a delight for me,” Foden stated this in an interview with mancity.com.
“It’s something for me to add on now keep scoring goals. It’s very important. We know what they’re about. The last time we played them, we were very good in the first half then they came out in the second half and they performed.
“At halftime the manager said we have to be ready because they will come out firing. They scored an early goal which wasn’t ideal, but the way the team reacted and the way we controlled the game, it was an unbelievable display today.
“The last two games were not ideal for us. We’ve come off the back of two rubbish results. Today we had to make that right. We definitely did that. The way we performed throughout the full game was a delight to watch so in really happy.”
