Guardiola hails Bernardo Silva after Burnley winPortuguese midfielder named as man-of-the-match after opening scoring against the Clarets

Pep Guardiola hailed Bernardo Silva after another man-of-the-match performance from the Portuguese midfielder helped City to a 2-0 victory aganist Burnley.

Silva had been linked with a move away from the club in the summer transfer window, but a transfer never materialised and Guardiola believes the player is back to his best.

“He is in incredibly good form alongside Rodri and both played so well the last four or five games,” said Guardiola.

“He is at the level of the second season when we won with 98 points and he was out of this world.

“He is at the same level now. He is so intuitive; he always gives us the extra ball that we need.

“Today he scored a goal, that’s important for him. The performance of Bernardo has been extraordinary again.”

“We are so lucky to have him. He was an incredible signing for us.

“All I want is his happiness. He deserves the best. He is a joy to have as manager. When he doesn’t play he always tries to do his best.

“He is at his best level right now.”
