Bernardo Silva: 'Manchester derby defeat was a bad game for us.'

Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva says the Citizens will have to watch their match against Manchester United and listen to what Pep Guardiola has to say about the defeat that was "not acceptable".

The midfield maestro insists the Citizens 'need to check what’s not going right' for them after they were beaten 2-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Goals from Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay handed the Red Devils a vital win as they continued their pursuit to secure a Champions League spot.

The result means Liverpool will only need two wins to lift their first ever Premier League title.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the Portugal international said: "It was a bad game for us. Not acceptable. We didn’t start badly and were playing quite well until we conceded.

"We know how good the Manchester United players are on the counter-attack, very aggressive. So our performance was not acceptable.

"We will have to watch the game back and listen to what Pep has to say. But a team like ours cannot lose this many games. We need to check what’s not going right and try not to make so many mistakes."

Manchester City are now 25 points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool but are ahead of third-placed Leicester City by seven points.
