Bernardo Silva has hailed Manchester City’s current run of form.
“It is important to have these kind of runs if you want to be champions,” he explained. “The team is really solid, doing well.
“The beginning of the season was not easy for us but then after a few months I think everyone showed our focus to win again because last season was quite frustrating for us.
“There is still a long way to go but we are happy with the performances from the team in these past few months especially.
“When you have a good momentum it always feels good. It always builds your confidence and strength of the team.
“It feels a little bit like the 2017/18 season and the end of the 2018/19 season when we won plenty of games in a row to win the Premier League.
“We are feeling strong at the moment, but we have got very, very tough games ahead of us right now.”
“Two seasons ago we had a very tough game there,” added the playmaker.
“I think they are doing very well in the Championship. It is the FA Cup so anything can happen. It is a tough game away, but we want to qualify and we want to do well.
“We always have eyes on all four trophies every season. We know it is always tough.
“We are in the final of the Carabao Cup, now we are playing Swansea in the FA Cup, in the Premier League we are in a good position and we are in the last 16 of the Champions League.
“We are going to do our best to win them all, knowing it is a very tough task.”
