They are both young players and are very key and powerful as we take a brief look at their contributions to the success of their teams.
A debate has emerged online in the days after both Chelsea and Man City qualified for the Champions League final, overcoming Real Madrid and PSG respectively.
Many fans have taken advantage if this to voice their opinion on who is the better player between Chelsea’s Mason Mount and Man City’s Phil Foden. It is important to note that both have been instrumental to their team’s success this season.
In football, the numbers do not lie so we will take a look at statistics to decide who has been the better of the duo this season.
Chelsea star Mason Mount has been in inspired form for the blues this season, making a total of 49 appearances in all competitions, scoring nine goals. He has also added a further eight assists to his tally.
While Mount’s numbers are impressive, Man City’s Phil Foden has appeared a total of 46 times this season. He has netted 14 goals and 10 assists across all competitions. Going by this, Foden has been the better of the two stars this season.
Another important point as we compare the duo is that while Foden is used mostly as strikers by Pep, Mount is mostly used as a midfielder.
