Owen Hargreaves has compared Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva to Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante.

According to Hargreaves, Bernardo Silva presses the ball like Kante.

“If Mo Salah wasn’t playing almost Michael Jordan-esque then that just tells you how great Bernardo Silva has been,” Hargreaves responded when quizzed on whether Bernardo is the best player in the league. “He can probably can play five positions as good as each other.

“I just think he’s the perfect Pep player; in possession he’s great but he’s the modern number ten because number tens back in the day – Mesut Ozil and Coutinho – took a lot of time off out of possession.

“Bernardo Silva presses the ball like Kante, that’s how good he is. His finishing has been off the charts.”
