Manchester City’s forward Phil Foden has won the Premier League Player of the Season 2023/24 after an impressive year with the Cityzens as the charge for the fourth consecutive league title continues.

Foden, 23, has amassed a career-best 17 goals and assist in the Premier League this season and he would be eager to contribute in Sunday’s encounter against West Ham United as a win at the Etihad tomorrow would secure the title.

"To win this award is an achievement that I am extremely proud of," said Foden after winning the award.

"The Premier League is acknowledged as the greatest league in the world, and it is a pleasure to have been nominated with so many other great players who have all enjoyed special seasons for their clubs."

For City, only Erling Haaland (27) has netted more league goals this season as the Norwegian has been at the top of his game ever since joining the Manchester club in 2022.

"Overall, I've been very happy with the way I have played this season and really pleased that I have been able to contribute with the goals and assists throughout the season," Foden added.

"I'd like to thank all of the City staff, coaches and especially my teammates because without them this wouldn’t be possible. And I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who voted for me as the award means a lot.”

With 88 points, Man City stay at the Premier League points table summit and they are followed by Arsenal who have 86 points.

No team in the history of the Premier League has won the league title four times in a row. In the past, Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United won three consecutive league titles from 2006 to 2008 but that feat has already been matched by Man City.

While Man City is fighting to win their fourth consecutive league trophy, the Gunners are aiming for their first league title since 2004 when they were crowned the champions without losing a single match all season under the guidance of Arsene Wenger.
