Phil Foden backed into favourite for PFA Young Player of the Year

The City star is now 7/2 to pick up the award

After a scintillating start to the new season, Manchester City’s Phil Foden is the new favourite to be crowned this season’s PFA Young Player of the Year.

Having been as big as 10/1 before the season started, the 20-year-old star has been slashed into 7/2 following a brilliant start to the season. 

However, a standout 8/1 is available on the rising English playmaker. 

Oddschecker users are piling into Foden’s current odds, with 41% of bets in the market in the last week being placed on him. 

He has scored in both games he has played in so far this season. Firstly against Wolves, and on Thursday evening against Bournemouth in the EFL Cup.

The second most backed player is Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who has taken 25% of bets in the market in the last seven days. 

After a hat-trick last weekend against West Brom, the Everton striker has seen his odds tumble from as big as 40/1 into 10/1 after his brilliant goal scoring exploits. 

If the 23-year-old can keep up his performances, he has a fantastic chance at making a rumble in the market. 

However, both Foden and Calvert-Lewin have an array of talents they have to contest the award with. None more so than last year’s winner Trent Alexander-Arnold. The Liverpool right-back is second in the betting at around 5/1 and it would be no surprise to see him take the award for a second year in a row. 

Elsewhere in the market, Man United’s Mason Greenwod is an 8/1 shot, and Chelsea players Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz are 9/1 and 10/1 respectively.
