‘A creative threat’ – Journalists say ‘classy’ Man City man was ‘devastating’ v Wolves


Manchester City put Wolverhampton Wanderers to the sword on Wednesday night, thrashing the Old Gold 5-1 at Molineux. Kevin De Bruyne stole the headlines with four goals scored over the 90 minutes, but he wasn’t the only player who shone for the visitors.

Bernardo Silva also shone and made a beautiful assist for City’s opening goal, playing a through ball for De Bruyne who fired a low shot into the bottom corner. The 27-year-old seldom relinquished possession, turned over the ball multiple times and created chances at the other end.

Nathan Allen of City Xtra gave Silva a player rating of 7/10 and said he was typically ‘industrious’ in Wolverhampton. Max Parson of 90min gave the Portuguese international a player rating of 7/10 and said he was ‘a creative threat’ and ‘classy’ against the Old Gold.

Stuart Brennan of the Manchester Evening News gave him a player rating of 9/10 and said he was ‘devastating’ on the counter attack when Wolves added pressure. Against Wolves, Silva had 75 touches, created two chances, made two tackles, had one interception and completed 93.3% of his 60 passes.

The 27-year-old has scored 13 goals with seven assists in 48 games this season.
