Rio Ferdinand labelled a ‘disgrace’ with the possibility of Phil Foden joining an elite group of players by winning the Premier League this season.
Manchester City are seriously hunting for a fifth Premier League title in six seasons under Guardiola, with Liverpool in 2019/20 the only side to break their stranglehold on the trophy.
City are currently one point ahead of second-placed Arsenal and have five top-flight matches left, with a game in hand over the Gunners.
If Pep Guardiola side win the league, Foden will have won his fifth top-flight title at the age of just 23.

Ferdinand was inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame earlier this week and has been reflecting on the modern day greats.
Asked on his FIVE YouTube channel which current players he thinks will receive the accolade one day he said: “Kevin De Bruyne is the first name everyone is mentioning.
‘Arsene Wenger mentioned him last night when he was asked [about current players joining the Hall of Fame] and I agree.
‘I think Mohamed Salah will end up in there. Erling Haaland… He can go in there after just one season! Haaland could jump in there right now and be comfortable.
‘Who’s a young player I think who will end up in there? Phil Foden.
‘Did you know that Foden, potentially at the end of this season, if Man City win the Premier League… he will have five titles.
‘He’s 23-years old! It’s a disgrace, an absolute disgrace.’
