Manchester City

City ace calls for focus

12th February 2019, 03:19 by Michael Holland

Manchester City have to ignore Liverpool's results and focus on winning their own games as the title race hots up, Bernardo Silva says.

City's 6-0 victory over Chelsea on Sunday moved them back above Jurgen Klopp's men to the summit on goal difference, but they have played a game more.

Liverpool play their game in hand when they face arch-rivals Manchester United on February 24, a match that will put City in the unusual position of wanting a favour from their neighbours.

However Silva says City are more focused on their own performances, not what Liverpool are doing.

"Of course it is better if they lose some points but I think all of us, not only the manager but all of the players, have been saying to focus on our job," he said.

"If we don't win our games, it doesn't matter what they do so that is the most important thing now."

Sergio Aguero did most of the damage against Chelsea, scoring a record-equalling 11th Premier League hat-trick and a 15th overall for the club.

"I think you don't need any more words to describe him," Silva added. "He just proves week after week how good he is, year after year.

"It is just fantastic for us to have a striker like him scoring so many goals for us. I just hope he continues."
