Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden was delighted with victory at Brighton.

Foden struck twice in the 4-1 win.

He later said: "We enjoyed the first half more than the second half. We were really good in the first half and a bit poor in the second.

"In the end we got the result.

"I had to tell him [Gabriel Jesus] that it nicked off me [for Foden's second goal], he hadn't realised. A goal is a goal. Sometimes if you're in the right place you get that bit of luck.

"We're not a team who usually sit back but they put us on the back foot in the second half. We got the result. That's the main thing.

"I don't know where my best position is. I'm enjoying wherever I play, learning new posiitions.

"We're on a good run of form. We're working so hard in training to get things right."

On his new role in the side, Foden added: "I'm enjoying it, I can drop deep and get the ball and pick the passes off. It's a new role for me and I can say I'm really enjoying it. It changes it game to game. Sometimes I stay higher than normal, but this game they went man-to-man so I dropped a bit deeper and I thought we used the extra man well.

"We are on a good run of form, but we just want to keep going now for the next games and keep that level.

"On another day I could have scored three, but the main thing is the result and I'm just happy we got it today."
