Manchester City star Phil Foden included two Manchester United legends in his all-time Premier League XI.

Foden, 23, picked five of his former or current teammates at Manchester City in the team, but could not resist including two of the best from rivals United.

Asked by MailOnline, his team started with Ederson between the sticks and Kyle Walker at right-back over Gary Neville. “I’m serious, though; I don’t see a better right-back,” he claimed.

The rest of the defence was filled by former City centre-back Vincent Kompany, Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk and Ashley Cole, who starred for both Arsenal and Chelsea.

Patrice Viera and David Silva filled the central midfield positions, with Foden snubbing his current teammate Kevin de Bruyne, as well as multiple Premier League legends.

Foden chose his first United legend on the wing, placing Cristiano Ronaldo on one wing and Theirry Henry on the other.

His first choice for the two striker positions was former teammate Sergio Aguero, and he finished off his team with United’s all-time leading goalscorer, Wayne Rooney.

“I’d have to give it Rooney for the longevity,” he said.

Many supporters have questioned Foden’s team, with the obvious bias coming from his Manchester City picks.

“I know hes a blue but no prem all time team with 2 united players is correct,” one fan wrote.

Another responded: “Will never understand how United have the most titles in the history of the Prem yet almost none of them feature in these so called Ultimate XIs.”
