It was a frustrating night for the Manchester City fans in the Transfer Tavern last night, who saw their side struggle to break down Everton.
Though a point at home to the Toffees can be seen as a good result, it means Pep Guardiola’s men have already lost ground on Manchester United, much to the annoyance of our City-mad locals.
Still, there was one major bright point last night at the Etihad.
Summer signing Bernardo Silva hugely impressed when brought on late in the second-half, giving fans a taster of what’s to come from the big money arrival.
Indeed, the former Monaco man looks a real threat going forward, a joy to watch for our resident Sky Blues.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how Man City fans reacted on Twitter to Bernando Silva’s home debut.
Gut feeling says Bernardo Silva starts the next game.

Players rarely come in the complete package that Bernardo Silva offers. It's amazing how that man can hold up play, twist & turn.
