Silva disappointed City failed to complete comeback against Newcastle

Bernardo Silva says he is disappointed that Manchester City could not complete the comeback against Newcastle.

Manchester City

had to come from two goals down to salvage a point away to


in a six-goal Premier League thriller on Sunday.

"We scored the third goal in the 64th minute, so it was still very early in the game,"

Bernardo Silva

after the game told BBC Sport.

"I'm a bit disappointed we didn't score the fourth.

"But still, it's a good reaction from the team. It wasn't a perfect game but we will take the point. It is what it is. Seven points from three games aren't bad.”

City has now avoided defeat on each of the past three occasions they have fallen behind in the league. Guardiola’s side is the fourth side to avoid defeat in three straight Premier League games when two goals down.

"It was a very intense game,"

Silva added.

"We started very well. The first 15 minutes were ours. My perception on the pitch was that we started attacking too quick.

"When we start playing like this and it's too quick it's better for the opponents. The last 25 or 30 minutes of the first half were very tough.

"They could have scored more than twice in that time. Overall we played quite well but did not control their counter-attacks and runners.

"You'll suffer and that's what happened today. We knew how tough it is to come here. The atmosphere is great and they're a very physical team.

"They've been great over the last few months. They're in a great state of mind with very positive energy. We should have controlled the game better than we did today.”

Silva also about his future said:

"I'm happy. I'm doing my best to help the club. I'm very focused here."
