Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola hailed Bernardo Silva after his winner secured a 1-0 victory at Leicester. The midfielder’s second-half goal gave City a deserved three points at the King Power Stadium.
The champions made it three straight Premier League wins, but it was not a classic performance, with the visitors often wasteful after hitting 10 goals in their previous two games.
Silva was linked with a move away from the Etihad in the summer, but Guardiola expects big things from him this season.
He said: “I always have done, it’s an incredible situation. It’s not just the quality he played or the incredible runs or work ethic he has.
“We are happy he is here and in the future we will see what happens. He played really well in the last two games and today again. The connection with Jack (Grealish) and Joao (Cancelo) was brilliant.”
