“He is far better than Arsenal degaard, let’s put sentiment aside,” Pep Guardiola said after Manchester United’s triumph.
After Manchester City’s victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, manager Pep Guardiola was eager to applaud midfielder Bernardo Silva.
On Sunday afternoon, the triple winners defeated Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford, thanks to an Erling Haaland brace and a late score from Phil Foden. Haaland put the Sky Blues ahead with a penalty midway through the first half, before increasing Manchester City’s lead with a rising header early in the second half.
After Andre Onana parried Rodri’s shot, the Norwegian, who has now scored five goals against Manchester United, turned provider in the 80th minute, setting up Phil Foden for a tap-in. Manchester City’s 3-0 victory brings them back to within two points of Premier League leaders Tottenham, with Pep Guardiola’s side also recording their first clean sheet since September.
Guardiola was quick to compliment midfielder Bernardo Silva after Manchester City’s rout of Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon. He doesn’t drive flashy cars, he doesn’t dress flashy, yet everyone in the locker room adores him. We were afraid of losing him [during the summer]. He cannot be replaced.” “I could spend ten minutes discussing what Bernardo Silva means to me and this squad. He is an extremely talented player. We’re madly in love with him!” Silva, who had been linked with a move away from Manchester City throughout the summer transfer window, signed a new contract with the club in August, putting an end to months of speculation. The 29-year-old has made nine appearances for Manchester City this season, including his 14th Manchester Derby appearance on Sunday.
