Bernardo Silva delivers Erling Haaland assessment that will worry Arsenal as Man City chase historic treble
Bernardo Silva has fired a warning to Arsenal as Man City chase down a historic treble.
City cruised their way to the Champions League semi-final with a 4-1 aggregate win over Bayern Munich.
City have won 12 of their last 15 games and look in devastating form in the final stages of the season.
They remain four points off table toppers Arsenal, but have a game in hand, and the two sides face off in a seismic Premier League clash next week.
“We struggled until February because we couldn’t get in that usual run we had before of winning 10-15 games in a row but now we are very consistent,” Silva told BT Sport.
“We feel we have a chance in every competition and we are going for them.”
Real Madrid stand in City’s way in the Champions League semi-final, and if they get through would face one of the Milan clubs in the final.
On the semi-final clash against Real Madrid, Silva added: “We always go for it but we feel the team is very, very confident at the minute. I think we are going through.”
The key weapon in Man City’s armoury is Erling Haaland – who scored his 48th goal of the season against Bayern on Wednesday night.
The striker make the difference for the Manchester club as they fight for the treble.
When asked if having a striker of Haaland’s reliability helps the team, Silva continued: “Maybe yes, because we never had that kind of player, we always played even when Kun [Sergio Aguero] was here, he’s more of a striker that drops to play with us, and Erling is a special player, a different player to what we had in the past and is someone who doesn’t have to touch the ball many times to score.
“He’s like a shadow for 85 minutes and then he touches one and it’s a goal. Because we have that special player now maybe sometimes we feel a bit more comfortable defending a bit more back because when they give us the space in behind we know we have that animal running in the back.
“And Kevin as well when he runs through on the counter-attack that special connection between them is very dangerous. So maybe, yeah.”
