- Manchester City were held to a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace on Monday
- City are now just four points clear of title rivals Liverpool in the Premier League
- Bernardo Silva still feels City are in a better position than the Reds in the race
- The two sides will meet at the Etihad Stadium next month in a critical clash
Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva has insisted his side are ‘still in a better position than Liverpool’ despite a goalless draw with Crystal Palace on Monday.
The result means Liverpool will cut City’s lead to one point if they beat Arsenal away from home on Wednesday.
The Reds could even go top before Pep Guardiola’s City next play in the league as they are in the early kick-off in three weeks’ time, with City facing Burnley at 3pm.

Silva remains confident and knows next month’s showdown at the Etihad will be critical
But the Portuguese international remains confident and insisted next month’s showdown between City and Liverpool at the Etihad will be critical in the title race.
‘We couldn’t score and we should’ve scored,’ Silva told Sky Sports.
‘Nine games to go, but it’s still better to be in our position than in Liverpool’s and they have to play in our stadium so it’s going to be exciting.’
City have played one game more than Liverpool and despite the goalless draw at Selhurst Park being a frustrating one, he was keen to pick out the positives.

Silva added: ‘It’s never easy to play at any team away in the Premier League. It’s always better to win than draw and we wanted to have an advantage of six points over Liverpool.
‘It was a tough game, we played well. I thought we actually controlled well the game apart from one or two times we lost possession and they counter-attacked.
‘They didn’t create much. We controlled possession, our counter-attacking.
‘Unfortunately we couldn’t score. We should have scored, we didn’t. A very frustrating game.’
