Foden, who has chipped in with 14 goals and 11 assists in 44 games in all competitions this term, is also favourite to win the PFA Young Player of the Year award.

And there could be more delight for Foden as he aims to win his fourth Premier League title on Sunday.

City go into the final clash of the season a point ahead of Liverpool at the top of the table.

They know a win against Aston Villa at the Etihad will secure the title regardless of whether the Reds beat Wolves at Anfield.
