Bernardo Silva has welcomed the pressure as title-chasing Manchester City prepare for a critical derby at this week.

Wednesday's trip to Old Trafford appears to be the biggest hurdle left facing City as they chase another Premier League crown following Saturday's tense 1-0 win over Tottenham.

Much has been made over whether United fans might actually prefer loathed neighbours City to win the title rather than arch-rivals Liverpool, but Silva does not expect that to affect players' thinking.

The Portuguese midfielder said: 'We are so happy with the win (on Saturday) and now it's on to another tough one against which I think will be crucial for the title.

'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.
