The tricky winger has been the shining star at Manchester City this season and forced his way into Sven Goran Eriksson's plans - scoring a memorable goal on his full debut against Ukraine in August.
Now we prepare to face him at the City of Manchester Stadium on Saturday.
"He's getting better and better - I hope he's not so good this weekend," said coach Chris.
"If you look at the young players who have made progress in the game here then he's as good as anyone over the last year.
"If there is a young player knocking on the door to become an Englans regular he will be top of that list at the moment."
Chris Hughton is convinced Shaun Wright-Phillips will be the next bright young thing to cement his place in the England squad.
