​Man City star Bernardo Silva: We're still in better position than Liverpool

Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva believes they are still in a stronger position than Liverpool to win the Premier League.

The two clubs are going head to head for the title, and if Liverpool win their game in hand against Arsenal in midweek, they would move to within a point of City.

However, Silva believes that one point lead is valuable, given the two sides have to play each other at the Etihad Stadium before the season ends.

After their 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday, Silva spoke to Sky Sports and said: "It was a tough game, we actually played well, we controlled the game apart from one or two times.

"We couldn't score and we should've scored. Nine games to go, but it's still better to be in our position than in Liverpool's and they have to play in our stadium so it's going to be exciting.

"It's never easy to play at any team away in the Premier League. It's always better to win than draw and we wanted to have an advantage of six points over Liverpool."
