Portugal international Bernardo Silva insists that Pep Guardiola’s side want to keep the winning momentum going. Manchester City beat Marseille on Wednesday night as they finished their Champions League group in flying colours. The Cityzens ran riot over the French side as goals from Ferran Torres and Sergio Aguero as well as an own goal from Alvaro Gonzalez in the 90th minute led to a 3-0 victory at the Etihad.

Following the tie last night, midfielder Bernardo Silva revealed their “goal is to do better than we did in the last three seasons” in Europe’s elite competition. The Portuguese told BT Sport: "It was a good game we knew we have already got first spot in group and we are already qualified but it's always very good to finish the group stage with a good win, 3-0 at home. Onto the next one. "It's a good start for us - we know it's not enough but it's a very good start. We're into the last 16 and our goal is to do better than we did in the last three seasons and that's what we will try to do."

When asked what it felt like to have Argentine striker Sergio Aguero back to the team, Silva replied: "Very happy, everyone knows how important he is for us. He is one of the best players to ever play for this club, he's a goalscorer and a fantastic guy to have in the dressing room as well. Good to have him back."

City now head to Old Trafford this weekend to take on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils, who were knocked out of the Champions League on Tuesday night, however, Silva is optimistic that they can register a win in the Manchester derby. "It's been a few games that we've been winning, when you win its easier to go into the next game and win again and win again,” he said. “So to have these games in a row winning of course it's very nice and we just want to keep the momentum going we know we have a tough game against Manchester United at the weekend and we want to just keep winning."
