Will we see Pep play Foden and De Bruyne together in midfield?

With Phil Foden thriving in midfield of late and Kevin De Bruyne returning from injury it poses a question. Will Pep Guardiola play the pair together in City’s midfield? It has long been a dream of Manchester City fans to see the pair in midfield together and now more than ever it appears that it could be a real possibility.

With Phil Foden in sparkling form of late, he is quickly becoming a mainstay of Pep Guardiola’s midfield. Since his error against Crystal Palace the England international has been in scintillating form. His influence on the treble winners was evident at the weekend against Sheffield United. On current form, he’d nearly be the first player picked for Manchester City.

With Kevin De Bruyne returning to the Manchester City squad at the weekend his return to the pitch is only around the corner. This weekend’s third-round FA Cup tie against Huddersfield may see the Belgian international return to the pitch.

Someone will have to make way to cater for De Bruyne’s return. On current form, there is no way it can be Phil Foden. He has become too important to the world champions and is arguably their best player on form currently. De Bruyne is Kevin De Bruyne so when he’s fully fit he has to play given his quality.

Which then leads to a possible answer. It’s time to play the electrifying pair together in midfield. The thought of De Bruyne and Foden together with Rodri in midfield is a tantalising one for City fans and a frightening one for their rivals. With their skill and technical ability they could tear through opponents while giving City the control they crave.

It has long been a dream for Manchester City fans to see the pair in midfield together, it feels like Pep Guardiola will unleash the pair sooner rather than later.
