Foden could face Shakhtar

Phil Foden is in line for his full senior debut should Manchester City win their Champions League clash at home to Feyenoord next week.

Pep Guardiola's side will secure top group billing with a victory over the team from the Netherlands which would also render their final game against Shakhtar Donetsk a proverbial dead-rubber.

The Citizens have already secured qualification for the round of 16 and Guardiola is believed to be considering taking Foden on the exhaustive trip to the Ukraine, with the small matter of a Manchester derby against rivals United at Old Trafford just three days later.

Foden was named player of the tournament in England's momentous triumph at the Under-17 World Cup and was an unused City sub last year against Celtic at the tender age of 16.

The Stockport-born midfielder has been taken out of the spotlight since his rise to national prominence.

However, Guardiola saw enough of the 17-year-old in the summer friendly against United to know he can trust the starlet to do a job and spare some of his senior men the extra air miles.
