Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says Bernardo Silva will do his best again this season.
Silva scored against Sweden in the Nations League for Portugal on Wednesday and was supported by Guardiola before the City and Arsenal clash.
While the playmaker was directly involved in 13 goals in the last Premier League season – compared to 14 in 2018-19 – he had fewer chances.
Silva had 71 chances, including assists, in 2018/19 and that number fell to 51 last season when he played 824 minutes less.
Guardiola said the 26-year-old was exhausted last season after helping City win four national trophies and Portugal winning the Nations League the previous season.
“He was injured in a few moments and hasn’t reached the level of last season, but it happens. I think that if there is a player, I have absolutely no doubt who he is as a football player, it’s Bernardo, “the city manager told reporters.
“He played absolutely amazing all season when we won four national titles. Unbelievable, then he was the best player with Portugal in the UEFA Nations League Final. ”
“He didn’t have time to freshen up, he was exhausted and his mind was exhausted and he was struggling with it. It’s not because he didn’t want it, but because we challenge a lot of players and sometimes we don’t. ”Possible.
“In the NBA – the best league in basketball and we can say the Premier League is one of the best in football – they have three or four months off, they play a lot of games – 70 or 80 – but they have three or four months Break. ”
Guardiola added: “It was like that with Bernardo – he couldn’t refresh himself mentally and started the season mentally tired.
“But I have a feeling that he will have a very good season this season because in many ways he is going back to what we have seen in the past.”
Before hosting Arsenal on Saturday, City are in 14th place in the table after scoring just four points in their first three games.
