Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva has said winning the Premier League title for the fourth year in a row is the aim of the team this season.

The Portugal international admitted that achieving such feat will be difficult as rival clubs are tougher this season.

City will host Liverpool on Saturday at the Etihad as both Clubs battle for the Premier League top seat, this afternoon.

Speaking ahead of the game, Silva said: “We know that no one has ever won four Premier League titles in a row, and we are fighting for the fourth, knowing that the teams we are playing against this season have improved a lot from last season.

“Liverpool is back, Tottenham has started the season really well and Arsenal again.

“It is going to be a very tough job, but we definitely want to create history and win four in a row.

“We are a team that has won five Premier Leagues in six years, and we want to keep winning, with the goal of creating a legacy of people in 10 to 20 years looking back and looking at us and thinking that this was one of the best teams in the history of English football and maybe the best.

“That idea of people looking back at us and knowing that we created a bit of history in this game is a nice view.

“We had a conversation at the beginning of the season because we wanted to try and start the season well, because last season we put Ourselves in a difficult situation where we were seven or eight points behind Arsenal, and it is not a nice feeling because you have to go after them.

“We needed to start the season well, put ourselves in a good position to win the league and not go after Arsenal, Liverpool, or Tottenham.

“We are trying to work on that and win as many as games as possible.”
