Fernandiho is confident in the team’s character. Speaking after the win at Villa Park, the Brazilian star spoke about City’s resilience and Phil Foden’s impact.

Let’s dive in-

“We recovered possession and controlled the game and turned it around in the first half and the second half was tough.

“But at the end it was a good game and we’re happy for another victory.

“We have five games left to play but with the character of our players we are sure we can do it.”

“I’m pleased for the team, the players and everyone at the club because we have fought a lot to reach this point.

“We are so close we just need to focus and concentrate. We have five games left and we’ll see what happens.”

“I’ve known him about five years (Foden), since he was a little boy and he’s showed his quality, no doubt about that.

“He’s matured and is taking the actions better, again he scored today and he’s been awesome.

“I’m so pleased and happy for him because he’s a nice boy and deserves the best.”

Good to see his confidence and the team’s not waver. The final stretch is here and all players will need to be in great shape physically and mentally.
