This saw the Cityzens continue their remarkable run of wins this year. They have now won 17 consecutive matches in all competitions.
Man City are now head and shoulders ahead of everyone else in the race to win the Premier League title. They are 10 points clear of second placed Manchester United with 14 matches left in the season.
“What a player is all I can say,” Pep Guardiola said when asked about Bernado Silva’s influence.
The Portuguese international scored and provided an assist last night.
“Everything he does, he does incredibly well. The year we won a second Premier League title in a row, he was unstoppable and now he is back.
“He is a lovely person and as a manager you love to have players like Bernardo. His Mum and dad will be so proud.” Guardiola said.
The Spaniard didn’t want to dwell on their incredible run of victories. He claims that his side is firmly focussed on the challenge of facing Arsenal.
“Today, and tomorrow we enjoy but tomorrow afternoon we will think about Arsenal.
“This was a really tough game against a well organised Carlo team.
“It was difficult for wingers not easy to find space, so we were patient.
“We conceded one goal but not another. Goodison Park is always tough but incredibly satisfied with mentality.
“Lots of wins a row but still lots of desire, playing to get more, three points.
“Like Anfield we worked really hard and today was tough, they defended deep and are a really good team.
“We have a busy schedule and incredible few months ahead; we have Wolves and Southampton in one week as well so everyone will be involved.
“The schedule can get you depressed it’s too many games the guys need rest but it doesn’t matter.
“At the same time it is a beautiful challenge. Carabao Cup final back here for FA Cup and Everton show how tough it will be.
“We don’t look at the calendar just the next one, Arsenal after a few days we then travel to UCL, then West Ham, Wolves, United, non-stop.
“Recover well and try to win the next one. With the spirit we will continue to play this way, in every game we try to win with a good performance makes me feel grateful for these players.”
