"He's got a special instinct in front of goal, with the left and right foot," Pep Guardiola, the City manager, said.

Lewis Dunk was scrambling back but Phil Foden had already spotted an opening low to Robert Sanchez's right and brushed a superb finish with his wrong foot into the bottom corner, beyond the reach of the Brighton goalkeeper.

"I don't score too many with my right foot so I enjoyed it," Foden said.

The goal was the Manchester City and England midfielder's 10th in 25 matches for club and country already this season and makes him his club's outright top scorer this term.

The first touch from Kevin De Bruyne's pass to take him past Adam Webster was sublime and followed by that familiar turn of acceleration as he glided across the 18-yard line.

It was a good job Foden impacted this game as he did, too, because with City unable to get that second goal despite having good chances, Brighton remained within touch of a point, even after Raheem Sterling had skied a penalty over in stoppage time after Sanchez fouled De Bruyne, who Guardiola said was too "exhausted" to take the spot-kick himself.

He's some player, that kid.
