Bernardo Silva has discussed the challenges Man City are facing in the Premier League title race, with Arsenal being 5 points clear at the top of the table.
For starters, Mikel Arteta’s side have been unreal throughout the campaign, which has made it a challenge for City to keep pace with them.
However, Bernardo Silva and Co. have dropped needless points as well.
Draws against Aston Villa and Everton instantly spring to mind.
Against Brentford and Liverpool as well, Man City were fancied to take the all-important 3 points.
But Pep Guardiola’s side suffered upsets in both games, losing by a 1-goal margins on those two occasions in the Premier League.
While Arsenal also dropped two points against Newcastle United after their 0-0 draw, a 5-point gap remains a sizable lead at the top of the table.
Bernardo Silva and his teammates in sky blue will certainly be miffed about being the chasers in the title race, despite adding the incredible Erling Haaland within their ranks.
And the silky midfielder has made no attempt to hide this very reality.
Bernardo Silva discusses Premier League title race as Arsenal boast 5-point lead
Speaking to the official Man City website, Bernardo Silva has expressed his unhappiness at chasing Arsenal in the Premier League title race.
“We [Man City] haven’t reached the halfway point of the Premier League, but it is getting difficult because if you keep slipping, the gap will keep getting bigger.”
“You see the way Arsenal are, their energy and hunger, they are a very dangerous team because you feel these things.”
“The way they play, they are connected to the game and they are always alive. That is very dangerous when your rival is playing that way.”
“We know that we have got a long way to go and we are not at the top, so we are not happy with that.”
“We just need to keep working, keeping winning games, 3 points after 3 points, we will try to get there.”
Ultimately, the desire shown by Bernardo Silva shows that he is a serial winner and his aim remains to leapfrog Arsenal, and win his 5th Premier League title.
While Bernardo has admitted that he wishes to join a new club imminently, his appetite for silverware in a Man City shirt remains unquestionable.
