Man City star Bernardo Silva: We must improve away form before the 2020-21 campaign.

  • Man City star Silva: We cannot continue dropping points regularly away from the Etihad.

  • It has become the norm for Guardiola’s City side to drop points on the road this season.

City ran riot over title-winners Liverpool 4-0 at the Etihad Stadium last week but weren’t able to secure three points against the Saints.

Bernardo Silva insists Manchester City cannot continue their below-par displays away from home.

The Citizens, who ran riot over title-winners Liverpool last week, were beaten 1-0 at Southampton on Sunday evening, thanks to a beautiful Che Adams goal in the 16th minute.

The defeat at the St. Mary's Stadium was City's third away defeat on the bounce, however, midfield maestro Silva says Pep Guardiola's side must improve on that front if they are to battle for the Premier League title next term.

"I don't know. I don't have the answer to that," the Portugal international said as football365 quoted. "Of course, it's always better to play at home, a place where we're used to being.

"But there's no excuse for that. We need to improve next season if we want to win again the Premier League."

"We created plenty of chances but couldn't score them."

The 25-year-old added: "I honestly think we played well today.

"We created plenty of chances but couldn't score them. Then little mistakes cost us the game.

"Overall, I think 88 minutes of the 90 of this game were spent in the Southampton half of the match. But congratulations to them.

"We didn't play a bad game. I thought we started well in the second half especially - we put a lot of pressure onto them - but we couldn't finish our chances.

"I think we need to improve. We need to check the mistakes that we made today, the little mistakes that, for example, cost us the goal and the few chances they had.

"But overall, the way we played, I honestly thought it was good."

Manchester City are currently second in the Premier League table, 23 points behind champions Liverpool with five games left to play.
