Portugal international, Bernardo Silva has said he is hoping for Manchester United to do their city rivals a favor by ensuring they take points off Liverpool when the two heavyweights clash in the English Premier League very soon.
He also said, despite this wish, it was vital for Manchester City to not lose sight of their own performances too.
His words, “Of course it is better if [Liverpool] 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. If we don’t win our games, it doesn’t matter what they do so that is the most important thing now.”
On the thrashing they gave Chelsea, he said, “This one was one of the best [performances] probably because we played against one of the best sides in the world, we beat them 6-0,” he said.
“But I think, even this season against Liverpool at home, even though we just won 2-1, it was a fantastic performance.”
