According to the Citizens’ Bernardo Silva, the league title will be decided on Wednesday as Manchester City and Manchester United face off.

Wednesday will be a very special day in the English Premier League, the Manchester Derby might decide the future champion of the competition, as Manchester United hosts Manchester City at Old Trafford.

Or at least that’s what Citizens’ Bernardo Silva believes.

“We are so happy with the win [on Saturday] and now it’s on to another tough one against Manchester United which I think will be crucial for the title,” the midfielder told Sky Sports.

“It’s a big game for us, a big game for them. They need points to be in the top four and we need them to fight for the title.”

“So we expect a very difficult game against one of the best sides in England,” he added.

“They will be motivated to beat us and we look forward to it. We know we need the win, and the pressure is on – but that’s a good thing.”

He continued: “It was a massive win, very important for us, especially after the defeat in the Champions League.”

“We wanted to give a response with our fans here at home and I think we did it in the best way possible in difficult conditions. It was very warm outside and we played a very tough team with less than 72 hours to recover. It was three big points.”
