Phil Foden Or Jadon Sancho? Who is the better player?

The young warriors of England are scattered in different Premier League teams where they make a name for themselves. Two such exceptional talents are Phil Foden and Jadon Sancho. This iconic duo play for rival clubs and have deep interrelated history between them. It is no surprise that both rivals rate their enemy clubs player low and it has been up for debate if any one of them is superior to the other.

The two players are about the same age and had many eyes on them since a young age. People understand their potential as they are destined for greatness.

Is Foden better than Sancho? Let’s find out.

1: Personal Stats

These two players are too young to have big numbers when it comes to personal stats as they are yet to hit their prime. The overall career G/A stats suggest that they are quite close but Jadon has scored more goals in his pro career compared to Foden who have more goals scored during his younger days.

Best Season Of Sancho 2019/20 and Foden 2020/21:

Phil Foden Or Jadon Sancho? Who is the better player?

It’s clear from these stats that Sancho is far better than Foden when it comes to scoring but still, there are many factors to be considered as the style of Man City formation is difficult for his position to score. The Man City star also plays a more central role rather than an attacking position, unlike Sancho who plays on wings where he has his dominance.

However, even in terms of assists, Sancho is ahead of Foden which makes him the clear winner in this category. The Man Utd star has worked hard to make his way up to the top and moving to Bundesliga did help him achieve this.

Our winner in this category is Jadon Sancho.

2: Titles

Under the reign of Pep Guardiola this Manchester City squad has experienced much more success than many other teams of the Premier League. Foden is lucky to be related to them from a young age and have his name on the trophy too. Foden is lucky to be a 3 times Premier League Champion even before the age of 21. He has won a total of 10 titles with Manchester City. 

Sancho already has some trophies in his cabinet, he won the German Cup, the German Super Cup with Dortmund and U-17 World Cup with England.

It has been around for a while that Foden did not contribute much for most of the titles he has his claim to. All these rumours may be true but it was just because he was too young to help his team. It is not wrong to be in the winning team.

Our Manchester City wunderkind is far ahead in this category.

3: International Career

There are no rumours or differences when it comes to playing for England. The two players pair perfectly and make the people of their country happy. The two wunderkind’s of England are part of the project under Southgate for the next World Cup and the upcoming trophies.

Despite being of the same age they have quite similar stats and won the same amount of trophies for their country. It would not be fair to compare them in this category as they are too close to each other and are yet to make a huge impact.

It is a draw.

4: Individual Trophies

The best way to decide on a better player is to check who has won more individual honours to his name. Any great player is always rewarded for his performance.

  • FIFA U-17 World Cup Golden Ball: 2017

It is difficult to point out a winner as both of them won similar titles in different countries. Based on the above titles we pick Jadon Sancho to win only by a fine margin and this can change in the future.

Who is the better player? Foden or Sancho?

The people who understand football will agree that these two are exceptionally talented players way ahead of many other players of their age. In future, he may as well turn out to be a legend of City or get his name among the list of most elite midfielders. 

On the other hand, Sancho worked hard to be where he is but the recent change of management is affecting his performance and he is keeping his head up. It is one of the main reasons why he left for Germany to get more game time. No matter what happens Sancho will bounce back and shut down all his haters.

Based on all the above comparisons we can conclude that Sancho is ahead of Foden and has more experience too compared to Foden who has been playing for a single club since the start. All these might be totally different in future. For now, Sancho is the winner.
