Phil Foden scored as Manchester City beat Liverpool 4-1 at Anfield while Mason Mount got his goal as Chelsea beat Sheffield United 2-1 at Bramall Lane.

Both players are hoping for a spot in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the delayed Euros this summer and Graeme Souness has now revealed the better player.

Speaking after Manchester City’s victory over Liverpool, Souness hailed Foden as England’s best midfielder at present – ahead of Chelsea’s Mason Mount, Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish and Leicester City’s James Maddison.

Souness told Sky Sports: “You see this young fella, England have some top class midfielders coming through but he’s [Foden] at the top of the tree. Maddison, Grealish, Mount, I think he’s arguably the best.

“It’s very easy to look at the final shot but the initial take is all in one movement. He’s moving the ball so cutely.

“That young man is silky, he’s courageous, sees the picture, he’s quick. There’s so much to enjoy about this young man.”
