Manchester City is right behind Liverpool in the title hunt and they've got youngster Phil Foden to thank for that. On Monday, MCFC fell behind to Brentford thanks to a Neal Maupay goal, which had plenty of people nervous.

However, late in the first half, Foden was able to even things up with a great goal. Then in the second half, he scored twice to not only give City the victory, but he also posted a hat-trick in style. This is a game Foden will cherish for a while.

As of this writing, Liverpool is in first place with 51 points, but Man City is right behind them with 49. Keep in mind that MCFC also has a game in hand. Pep Guardiola's men are the favorites to win yet another league title.
