Phil Foden slammed a hat-trick against Manchester United on Monday at the Etihad Stadium which helped him to brake one of Lionel Messi's records.

With his second of the game, a stunning counterattack goal, Foden brought up his 50th goal in all competitions for Manchester City and became the youngest player to score 50 goals under Pep Guardiola, reports GOAL.

At just 22 years and 127 days old, Foden has become the youngest player under Pep Guardiola to reach the milestone of 50 goals. He surpasses Lionel Messi (22y 162d) as the quickest to the feat.

Foden grabbed himself a hat-trick to take him onto 51 goals for Manchester City in the second half of the Manchester derby. His third made it 6-1, with Erling Haaland also grabbing himself a hat-trick.

Foden will hope he can continue to contribute goals and assists to Manchester City for many more years to come, but in the short-term, he will look to help them any way he can in their Premier League title defence.
