Match of the Day host Gary Lineker has praised both Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden after they received the Premier League’s Player of the Season and Young Player of the Season awards respectively.

De Bruyne has once again shined for Manchester City in this season’s Premier League. Foden meanwhile has moved from strength-to-strength again for Pep Guardiola.

Both men faced stiff competition for their respective rewards with Liverpool’s Mo Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold also among the shortlisted candidates. However the league leader’s top performers managed to grab the accolades.

The former England international then added: “Congratulations to Phil Foden on being voted Premier League Young Player of the Year. A truly wonderfully talented footballer.
