Foden has also forced his way into Gareth Southgate’s England squad and seems assured of being called up for Euro 2020 action.

City have romped to the Premier League title and Carabao Cup already this campaign and hope to end it with Champions League glory on Saturday 29 May.

But one man who could be lining up against them for Chelsea that night is N’Golo Kante.

And Foden has now revealed that the Frenchman is the hardest opposition player he has faced so far in his fledgling career.

He told Sky Sports: “He’s probably the most obvious one, but it’s Kante.

“He’s just everywhere. You think you’ve got away from him but he’s always just by your side.

“He does everything. He runs everywhere. He’s such a great player.

“I’d probably say he’s my toughest opponent I’ve played against.”


Kante suffered an injury scare ahead of the showpiece after he limped off in the 2-1 win over Leicester on Tuesday just 32 minutes into the game.

But Blues boss Thomas Tuchel said afterwards: “N'Golo is not injured. He told me – and I understood him right in French – he went out before an injury.

“He felt his hamstrings and was worried that he would get injured if he continued to play.

“I have a good feeling with N'Golo. He said he felt something, he didn't want to risk a muscle injury.”
