Phil Foden, according to England star Alan Shearer, is one of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City team-first sheet's names.

In a 4-1 win over Brighton on Saturday, the playmaker started as a false-nine and scored two goals.

Shearer believes the 21-year-old has established himself as an important element of Guardiola's squad.

Shearer, speaking on BBC Sport, said:

"Foden is fast becoming the first name on Manchester City's team sheet - and that takes some doing.

"Two goals and an assist in a 4-1 triumph. Brighton couldn't handle him."
