Manchester City star Phil Foden has compared clubmate Erling Haaland and international teammate Harry Kane, citing their movement as the biggest difference between them.

Haaland and Kane are currently the two highest scorers in the Premier League with the Norwegian getting 18 goals in the first chunk of the season and the Englishman getting 12.

They are widely considered to be the two best strikers in England and two of the best in the world, and Foden has played alongside both of them.

When asked about the similarities and differences between the two, the Man City man picked out their movement as the biggest way in which they differ, with the Tottenham player dropping deeper.

“Well, they both can score goals, can’t they," he answered.

“Harry likes to drop, he can pick that pass off, whereas Erling is more, ‘I want to be in front of the goal and stay there and everything that comes my way I’m going to score.’

"It’s a pleasure to play with both.”

As he was in 2018 and at Euro 2020, Kane will be England's key man at the World Cup in Qatar, wearing the captain's armband and leading the line.

Foden says the team can't rely on him though and that the other attackers in the squad need to step up as well.

“We can’t always rely on Harry because teams are going to try to cut him off, because of how good he is," he stated. “It is going to take not just Harry to step up this tournament. Us attacking players are going to have to step up as well at times."
