Manchester City

The 22-year-old German had struggled for minutes in City's first four Premier League matches and speculation all may not be right with last season's young player of the year had been growing.

After joining from Monaco last season, Bernardo Silva initially appeared to struggle at City, generally having to settle for cameos off the bench. It's Tuesday, Wednesday Champions League games, show me the money, guys.

The German global claimed an early opening goal before further efforts from David Silva and Raheem Sterling maintained City's unbeaten start to the campaign in effortless fashion. "His natural position is outside but it's important for us to have players who can play in several positions". Both [parties] were agreed with what we wanted and it was done in a day. But we'll see how things go in two years and take it all from there. "That is what I want and after the sentence, on the pitch, on the grass, that is the real judge".

'It was a great start for them [Chelsea and Liverpool], for us as well even though we drew one game, ' said Silva.
