Bernardo Silva insists Manchester City are hungry for more success

Manchester City's "Centurions" became associated with smashing Premier League and other records last season as they collected a league and cup double in a campaign like no other.

Bernardo Silva has warned that Manchester City are in no mood to let up in their pursuit of further glory.

City are back in action on Tuesday as they face Shakhtar Donetsk in Kharkiv in the Champions League.

While Hart remains a popular figure on the blue side of Manchester, the Burnley goalkeeper would have anticipated a busy 90 minutes when the Clarets travelled to Manchester City this weekend. "We need to keep it this way".

He called it an "awful" result after one of their better performances of a chequered season and when City later destroyed Burnley with four second-half goals, it meant United, now ninth, are nine points behind their neighbours.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Guardiola said: "Normally the player thinks of himself, himself, himself - it's not easy - but he put himself a little bit in my position and said he understood perfectly". At that moment I thought it was a penalty and most of the players stopped.

City is top of the Premier League but is yet to show its best form in Europe, losing at home to Lyon and requiring a late victor from David Silva to complete a comeback away to Hoffenheim. "To be honest when I scored I didn't know if it would be allowed or not but it was a goal and we move on".

If Guardiola wants to make changes then he can look to his bench, where options available include Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus. "Anfield it was nearly one, today [Saturday] we didn't concede a shot on target".

"And if you look at the fact we didn't concede and say, 'How good is the defence?' that's a mistake too".

David Silva ran the show, assisting Sergio Aguero for the first goal of the game and before subsequently assisting Bernardo Silva for the second.

The Egypt worldwide came into Saturday's match against Huddersfield with just one goal for Liverpool in his past eight matches but a trademark clinical finish gave him his fourth Premier League goal of the season.

City's procession towards the three points was briefly held up by Burnley's goalkeeper Joe Hart, who was making his first return to Etihad Stadium after ending his 12-year stay in the summer.

He was also convinced City players Vincent Kompany and Sane should have been sent off for bad challenges. Fernandinho added a third just moments later killing off the game, whilst Riyad Mahrez and Leroy Sane heaped more misery onto Burnley with goals in the latter stages of the game.

"I think to be fair, if you take away the noise I don't think there's ever been any real problem with him, the manager or the club", said Dyche.
