Bernardo Silva sends warning to Man City’s Premier League title rivals after Watford win

Hat-trick hero Bernardo Silva says Manchester City have shown their title credentials after their 8-0 demolition of Watford in the Premier League.

City returned to winning ways in the league after last week’s disappointing defeat at Norwich, with the long midweek trip to Shakhtar Donetsk providing potential to tire the squad ahead of the visit of the Hornets.

But Pep Guardiola’s men were relentless from the first minute at the Etihad, opening the scoring after 53 seconds through David Silva and reaching the five goal mark after just 18 minutes.

Helped by Bernardo’s three goals – his first career hat-trick – City finished with eight goals on the afternoon to return to within two points of Liverpool ahead of their clash with Chelsea on Sunday.

 

And Bernardo said City’s reaction to last week’s defeat shows they are a team that are ready to fight to retain their Premier League title.

He told Sky Sports: “Great performance. 8-0 says everything. The way we started the game with a goal in the first or second minute. I think on the 25th minute we were already four or five nil.

“So great performance from the team. Very good to get the three points after the defeat in Norwich. I’m happy my first hat-trick in my career and first ball I will have at home. Happy with the three points, onto the next one.”

Asked specifically about City’s powerful response to the Norwich loss, Bernardo had a message for Liverpool and any other title rivals.

 

“That’s what we showed over the last two seasons,” he said.

“All the teams have good and bad moments but the way you react to the bad moments is the most important thing and the way you see how big the teams are and how strong they are mentally.

“Once again this team showed that we want to fight for the Premier League and fight for all the titles.

“Very good to get the three points and have a good performance in front of our fans, our crowd, and thanks to them because they were amazing once again.”
