Silva credits 'fantastic human' Guardiola for help after son's premature birth

Silva struck on the stroke of half-time following a mazing run on the edge of the penalty area and City youngster Lukas Nmecha equalised in the 51st minute before the Portugal global sealed the win 19 minutes later at Hard Rock Stadium.

Sadio Mane later scored a penalty in stoppage time to give Liverpool the win.

"For the last 15 minutes, we were so exhausted".

Having joined Manchester City from Valencia in 2010, the midfielder has arguably been one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, let alone for City.

"He didn't arrive good", Guardiola said midway through September when he followed up that impressive performance against the Baggies with a man-of-the-match performance in the victory of Crystal Palace a week later.

The two teams provided their far share of excitement last season, with thrilling domestic wins for either sides and a memorable Champions League Quarter-Final encounter.

"I'm so proud and happy to be manager of these guys for that reason".

The English champions had 16 players playing in Russian Federation with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Vincent Kompany, John Stones, Kyle Walker, Fabian Delph, Raheem Sterling not due back until next weekend.

Spanish midfielder David Silva has thanked Pep Guardiola and Manchester City for their "love" during the most hard time of his life - the premature birth of his son. ". We have to enjoy our football, otherwise it makes no sense".

"That is not the easiest situation for any manager, not just for me", Guardiola told Sky Sports News.

"It was a great experience for them to be here and to have minutes and pkay against some of the best teams in the world".

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola spoke to reporters last night, and responded when asked what his views are on Liverpool's big spending this summer, as quoted by Goal.

"First we have to try and be successful and after that I have to accomplish quite a lot to even be considered near Pep Guardiola". "Now he's in flawless condition, he trains with us but we didn't want to take a risk with him on this pitch because we need players for the beginning of the season".
