Pep talks about KDB injury and Silva stunner

Manchester City beat Aston Villa 2-0 last night.

Bernardo Silva scored a peach but Pep was however, left with worries as Kyle Walker and Kevin De Bruyne limped off.

“I haven’t spoken to the doctor,” the City boss said at his post-match press conference.

“If Kyle asks to be out, it is because something happened. Hopefully it is just a kick.

“Kevin put his hand on his leg, so I have the feeling it will be something muscular.

“It is normal, these things happen with this amount of games.”

He also praised Bernardo Silva for scoring a peach.

“Bernardo, I said many times, is one of the most intelligent players I have ever seen,” said Guardiola.

“He can do everything in every position and he has the quality to score goals, too.

“He has to convince himself to be more important in the final third.

“When you want to be a top player you have to be important in making goals and assists.

“It’s really good for him and us. A fantastic goal.”

The goal however, appeared dubious but Pep had a different take on it.

He added: “I didn’t watch the image on TV.

“I know they complained on the touchline but VAR is there.

“There are many times when there are long balls and the player is offside and you go backwards with the centre-half and use the counter-attack.

“I don’t know the rule. If it was offside I am sure VAR wouldn’t have allowed it. In general the way we played was outstanding.
