Man City midfielder, Bernardo Silva has credited a greater confidence and a chance to settle, for having a better start to this season.
The Portugal international joined City from Monaco last season for a reported fee of £44 million.
Bernardo only started 15 of the 35 games he played last season, but has been instrumental to four of their five wins so far.
“The second season is always easier than the first one. When you change it’s always more difficult. You have to adapt to the way your team plays, you have to adapt to your team-mates, to the league, to the referees,” he said.
“Obviously I have more confidence, I feel better with the team and I hope I can do better than last season.
“I’m happy because I’m helping the team and that I’m feeling well, I just hope that I can continue this way.
“I can play either in the centre or wide, I can do whatever the manager thinks is best for the team. It depends on the games, I feel comfortable both ways.
“It was a great start for them [Chelsea and Liverpool], for us as well even though we drew one game.
“It’s still the beginning, a lot of games to play, we’ll see what happens but we want to try and win the Premier League.”
