SILVA BULLET: Bernardo celebrates at the Emirates

Bernardo Silva feels confident that he is approaching his best form for City.

The Portuguese play-maker had an impressive first campaign for the Blues, but felt he was still finding his feet in a new league and a new country.

After returning from his World Cup break early, the former Monaco star has hit the ground running and has been in sparkling form in the champions’ first three games this term.

He also opened his account for the season with a stunning goal against Arsenal and has promised there is plenty more to come.

“I feel a lot better and adjusted to the team,” said Bernardo.

“I think in your second season, it’s normal to feel more at home and that definitely applies to me.

“We all know there is plenty of hard work ahead in the coming months, but it is great to start the way we have.”

 

BOOM! Bernardo off the mark against the Gunners

 

City travel to face Nuno Espírito Santo’s Wolves at the weekend – and Bernardo will see many familiar faces such as former Benfica team-mates Ivan Cavaleiro, Helder Costa, plus Ruben Vinagre (Monaco) and international team-mates Ruben Neves, Rui Patricio, Joao Moutinho

“We need to continue the way we have begun,” he said.

“We played really well against Chelsea for the Community Shield, we played a great match against Arsenal and obviously it’s always amazing to start our home game campaign with a win and to do so by winning 6-1 was perfect.

“We’re very happy and while we know it’s only the start, but we are happy with the way we have begun and now we must continue against Wolves on Saturday, even though we know what a difficult game this will be – they have many quality players.”

The 22-year-old German has come on as a substitute in both City's top-flight games so far this season, forcing the sixth goal against Huddersfield in last week's Etihad Stadium rout.
