Manchester City’s Phil Foden has been named PFA Young Player of the Year for the second consecutive season.

The 22-year-old was last month also named the Premier League’s young player of the season.

Foden proved instrumental to City’s fourth Premier League title win in five seasons, averaging a goal or an assist every 146 minutes as Liverpool were pipped to the title on the final day.

Dele Alli, then at Tottenham, last won the award in back-to-back seasons, following in the footsteps of Wayne Rooney, Robbie Fowler and Ryan Giggs.

Receiving the award for the second time, Foden said: “I'm really honoured to be honest, especially to win it back-to-back, it shows that I've come a long way this year with the consistency of my game, and I’m really pleased to win it again.

“All the best players in the world have got to show consistency and keep performing at the higher level, and this year I've just tried to do that and try and help my team as much as possible - I’ve been really happy with my performances this year.

“Hopefully I can win the main award in the future, but it’s all about taking small steps and improving. I always love winning individual awards, it’s just nice to look at and see how far you've come so, yeah, I’m really pleased.”
