On the being ball boy and the title race, Foden had this to say:

“It was a great game.

“I have great memories of that game because we won it. I was behind Joe Hart’s goal, I always followed him. I touched the ball a few times.

“I couldn’t be in a better team.

 “Every player wants to fight for the team and we’re unstoppable with that attitude. When we won the league last time we were miles in front but this is better because we’ve actually had a challenge, someone fighting with us.

“If we can do this, then people are going to have to start thinking that we’re one of the best teams ever.”As quoted by the Times.
