Manchester United great, Paul Scholes, says Manchester City’s Phil Foden can already be deemed a ‘much better footballer’ than Chelsea legend Frank Lampard based on pure talent.

Scholes made the claim after Foden’s exceptional performance in Manchester City’s Premier League 3-1 victory over Manchester United on Sunday.

Foden scored a brace to help Man City defeated Man United at Etihad.

His teammate Erling Haaland was also on the score sheet.

“Look, he is a better footballer than Frank Lampard but Frank Lampard scored goals and won leagues for his club from midfield,” Scholes told Premier League Productions

“Look, Phil Foden is a much better footballer than Frank Lampard was, don’t get me wrong, but Frank won leagues for his team because of the contribution he made in midfield, in big games especially, and with Phil Foden I think we are seeing the same type of thing.”
