Phil Foden gave Pep Guardiola another nudge on Saturday to suggest that he is ready for more responsibility at Manchester City than just the odd cup game.  In the Premier League, the 18-year-old has had to make do with eight substitute appearances, with the longest totalling 21 minutes. It’s a conundrum for Pep.
