A Twitter thread has gone viral for asking fans to choose whether Bukayo Saka or Phil Foden has the better all-round game in English football.

Saka has arguably been Arsenal's player of the season so far, while Foden continues to grow under Pep Guardiola's tutelage.

The pair featured for England as the Three Lions reached the finals of the Euro 2020, and comparisons continued to be drawn between the two youngsters.

Twitter user 'nonewthing' sparked a debate over who is the better player. Their post read: "Saka v Foden is a weird one.

“Foden is the greatest technical talent of his generation in England. He's also a top talent, physically. It is however possible for Saka to outshine him - as we saw during the Euros - because Saka himself is the best mental talent of his generation.”

The fan then listed supposed strengths and weaknesses in both players, praising Saka for his “technical ability, great physical prowess and world class mentality” and Foden for “world class technical quality and top of the line physicality”.

“Foden should be playing the 10 role behind Saka and [Raheem] Sterling for England,” they added.

However, the thread got Manchester City and Arsenal fans arguing over who the better player is.
