Bernardo Silva has scored an incredible volley to give Manchester City a 2-0 lead over Aston Villa.

The Portugal midfielder is in the form of his life right now as City look to win their second consecutive Premier League title.

City travelled to Villa Park looking for their sixth consecutive win in all competitions and took the lead through Ruben Dias.

Just before half-time, City countered to devastating effect and Gabriel Jesus' cross found Silva, who let rip with a thumbing effort.

The ball from Jesus floated just long enough for Silva to wrap it round his left foot and smash past a helpless Emi Martinez.

Silva came close to leaving City in the summer and Pep Guardiola wasn't going to stand in his way.

He'll be glad the 27-year-old stuck around and fans have joked he's now the best Portuguese player in the world, ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes.

Villa have managed to pull a goal back early in the second half through Ollie Watkins.

Despite Silva's form, teammate Ilkay Gundogan believes the former Monaco man is still underrated by many.

He told ESPN: "I think he's very underrated.

"He puts so much effort into everything he does, on the pitch to make it easier for us, not just for himself.

"There might be a danger that sometimes he is not appreciated enough, but we know in the club how important he is for us, how appreciated he is in the team and we are very happy that he's here and having such an incredible season."
