Bernardo Silva: Good to see Man City again leading Prem

Bernardo Silva admits Manchester City are happy to be top of the table with victory at Watford.

The Portuguese midfielder grabbed a brace in a dominant display from Pep Guardiola's men with an early Raheem Sterling header setting us on the way inside four minutes.

Combined with Chelsea's 3-2 defeat to West Ham United in Saturday's early kick-off, the win saw City reach the Premier League summit for the first time this season.

Bernardo reflected: “It's always better to be top than second! But it's still the beginning, we're not even halfway through, there's a lot of work to do.

“We're happy to be top of the league but Liverpool are just one point behind, Chelsea if I'm not mistaken are two, and there are lots of games to play and win.

“But of course, it's better to be in our position than not to be top.

“It's been tough for us, it'll be tough for Liverpool, Chelsea and for us to compete with each other, we know the level and the standards are very high.

“We have to do our job, we know how tough it is to win the most competitive league in the world. We're going to try and do our best as we always do."
