Bernardo Silva

has talked about their situation in the title race, insisting that they are in good form, but it is too soon to decide about the Premier League’s potential winner considering





"It was definitely a very good job in the first half,"

Silva said to Sky Sports.

"The team started very well, creating chances and not allowing them to counter-attack. We scored two in the first half but should have scored more.

"It's always better to be top of the league than second, third or fourth, but it's still early. It's so close – Liverpool are just one point behind us, Chelsea are two points behind us.

"Liverpool and Chelsea are having an amazing season. It's tough for us to compete with each other. We know the level and standards are very high. We know how tough it is to win the most competitive league in the world. We're going to try our best, like we always do."

The Portugal international has been the Citizens’ best scorer this term with seven goals, and he insists that in the absence of central strikers, everybody should create opportunities and use them.

"This season I've been scoring a lot and I'll try to keep it that way,"

Silva continued

. "What matters is that we're top of the league now and the team are doing very well at the moment. At the end of the season we want to celebrate some titles.

"My first four goals this season were all tap-ins. My last few goals have been quite good, but it doesn't matter – what matters is putting the ball in the back of the net. I'm happy to help the team.

"We know we don't have a striker. We have a lot of players who try to get in the box and finish. We try to put numbers in the box. If we arrive in the box, we're going to score goals.

"We're happy with the moment and happy with our form. We have to keep working because this season is going to be very tough."
