The former Real Madrid is starting a long distance. His final shot into the top corner.

Danilo volleyed his first effort from close range past the goalkeeper before sending his final goal. He finished with a respectable five points.

Foden was the third and final man to step up. He has scored in both of his last two appearances under Pep Guardiola.

The 18-year-old rolled into the back of the net, with the second and a delightful chip over the goalkeeper, leaving Sterling and Danilo applauding on the sideline.

Things took a turn when he ran inside the box though. Foden tried to finish the first part in the box with an outrageous flick but got his timing wrong and sent it back the way it came.

On eight points with just one left, Foden had to make it to level with Sterling.

He sprinkled the ball with his hands on his head and Sterling exclaiming 'Oh my good god'.

With Sterling and Foden both on nine points, Russell insisted they take part in a sudden death free-kick playoff.

Fuden stepped up and sensationally whipped back across goal and into the top corner, meaning he was the winner.

Guardiola will be able to maintain their pinpoint accuracy when they resume their Premier League title defense against Wolves on Monday night.
