Bernardo Silva may be going great guns in his second season with Manchester City, but he’s warned his teammates that their away clash with Wolverhampton Wanders at the Molineux Stadium on Saturday won’t be easy.
“I feel a lot better and adjusted to the team.I think in your second season, it’s normal to feel more at home and that definitely applies to me,” Bernardo told the club website.
City have hit the ground sprinting in their quest to defending the Premier League title, beating Arsenal 2-0 away on the opening weekend before following it up with 6-1 mauling of Huddersfield Town.
“We all know there is plenty of hard work ahead in the coming months, but it is great to start the way we have.”
Bernardo struggled to adapt to the demands of the Premier League last season after his switch from Monaco in the summer of 2017, but he’s made great strides so far and looks set to take over David Silva’s mantle.
“We need to continue the way we have begun. We played really well against Chelsea for the Community Shield, we played a great match against Arsenal and obviously it’s always amazing to start our home game campaign with a win and to do so by winning 6-1 was perfect.”
After playing in a central role against the Gunners, Bernardo was shifted out wide in Pep Guardiola’s new 3-5-2 system, but the versatile Portuguese played a key role from an unfamiliar position as the Sky Blues ran riot.

“We’re very happy and while we know it’s only the start, but we are happy with the way we have begun and now we must continue against Wolves on Saturday, even though we know what a difficult game this will be – they have many quality players.”
