Bernardo Silva convinced to change Premier League title prediction by Sky Sports reporter

Bernardo Silva convinced to change Premier League title prediction by Sky Sports reporter

Bernardo Silva did his maths wrong and changed his mind

Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva changed his mind during his post-match interview after the draw against Arsenal.

Both sides struggled to create real chances at the Etihad Stadium, playing out a 0-0 draw that allowed Liverpool to move two points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

Earlier in the day, Jurgen Klopp’s side came from behind to beat Brighton at Anfield thanks to goals from Luis DIaz and Mohamed Salah.

All three teams have some tough fixtures remaining with Liverpool still yet to travel to Manchester United and Everton as they seek to end Klopp’s final season at the club with a 2nd Premier League crown.

Following a frustrating draw against Mikel Arteta’s men, Silva admitted City face an uphill battle to win their fourth title in a row as they depend on other team’s results going their way.

However, it appears the Portugal international misread the table, thinking City only had seven games remaining to turn it around.

“A lot can happen now, because [there are] seven games right?,” before Sky Sports Patrick Davison told him there are nine games left.

Silva replied: “Oh nine? That’s better for us. I thought it was like seven or eight but nine is better because a lot can happen.”

When asked whether that meant City were back in it, Silva added: “Yeah, we’re back in it.

“Now we don’t depend on ourselves. We depend on Liverpool and Arsenal now because we don’t play against them again, so we need them to drop points as well as do our job and win our own games.”

His manager Pep Guardiola added after the game that Liverpool were now favourites to end up as champions due to their new position in the table.

“Always who is first is favourite,” he said. “The second favourite is Arsenal and we are third…It’s not in our hands.

“All we can do is think of Aston Villa (at home on Wednesday).

“Always when we were top of the league, we were favourites. It was in our hands. Now it’s not. It’s simple.”
