Speaking after the match, Foden said: “Yeah it’s a very difficult place to come and they’re in form, Everton. They didn’t make it easy.
“But the manager says you don’t get the world champions badge for nothing. We had to pick ourselves up in the second half and I thought we were tremendous.”
Foden continued: “The way we dealt with the game and handled ourselves under pressure at times was tremendous, so we’re delighted with the result.
“When I shot and it went in, we were back into the game and it gave us that push that we needed to go and win the game.”
As a result of their win at Goodison Park, City climbed to fourth place in the Premier League table, five points behind current leaders Liverpool.
City will be back in action this weekend as they welcome Sheffield United to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
