Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva’s comments about their team.

Silva has praised Liverpool for the way they are performing in the Premier League this season, and believe that the Reds are one of the best sides in the world.

The 25-year-old Portugal international has also suggested that little details have gone in favour of Jurgen Klopp’s side, who are as many as 22 points clear of defending champions and second-placed City.

Silva told Sky Sports: “Liverpool haven't surprised me, they're one of the best sides in the world and we knew they were going to be strong this season. It’s not just luck, they have a lot of merit but with the little details, everything went their way.

"In my first season here when we broke all the records and finished with 100 points, I remember winning three or four games in the 93rd or 94th minute and sometimes things go your way. Sometimes the ball that goes to the post and goes wide sometimes goes to the post and goes in.

"Last season, when we played Liverpool at home, John Stones cleared the ball off the line by a millimetre so these things sometimes make a difference."

Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the comments from Silva, who joined City from AS Monaco in the summer of 2017 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £43 million.

Set for Premier League title triumph

Liverpool have drawn just one game and have not lost any in the Premier League so far this season, and it is hard to see them slipping up in the coming weeks and months.

It is only a matter of time before the Merseyside outfit clinch the league title this season.
