Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has hailed Bernardo Silva’s performance in their dramatic 2-1 win over Liverpool at the Etihad as “incredible”.
The 24-year-old Portugal international has emerged as a key player for City this season and was outstanding alongside Fernandinho in central midfield.
Silva has started all but three of City’s Premier League games this season, highlighting his importance to the side and Guardiola was effusive in his praise of him post-match.
“Bernardo is incredible. I’ve not seen a performance like that, in all terms, in a long time.
“He’s clean, he’s clever, he fought against Van Dijk. He was incredible,” Guardiola told Sky Sports.
Silva made a decisive impact on the game, with an assist for Sergio Aguero’s opening goal towards the end of the first half.
