Cole Palmer made a strong debut in the 3-0 Carabao Cup victory over Burnley.
Pep Guardiola compared Manchester City’s 18-year-old midfielder to Phil Foden.
“He started out a little shy, but that’s natural,” Guardiola said to the official website of the club.
“In the training sessions, he is an outstanding young lad. He has taught us a lot. In this club, he has a promising future.”
“He’s a humble fellow. He’s an incredibly done man, like Phil. He was granted his opportunity to score. His appearance against a Premier League side in this competition is going to be positive for his future.”
“Again, thank you to the academy for those talents. We get players from the work of the academy.”
