Bernardo Silva embarrassed three players with mesmerising skill in Man City 2-2 Spurs

Bernardo Silva showed off brilliant skill against Spurs.

Bernardo Silva enjoyed a breakout season last campaign.

That's not to say that he wasn't already held in high regard, but the Portuguese went from being a very good option for Manchester City to arguably their best player.

He was vital in winning all three domestic trophies last season and then went on to lift the inaugural Nations League with Portugal in the summer.

Silva is now an integral member of the City team, making the right flank his own.

And in David Silva's final season at City, his namesake looks the perfect player to take over the mantle as the resident tricky playmaker.

Silva (Bernardo that is) showed off just how tricky he can be, too, with a mesmerizing display of ball control against Tottenham Hotspur.

City were leading 2-1 with under a minute to go before half-time when Silva found himself isolated on the right, surrounded by three Spurs players.

But no worry - none of them stood a chance of getting the ball off him.

Silva and Harry Winks in the 2-2 draw.

A couple of drag backs, some unbelievable close control, a few stepovers - whatever it took to keep that ball, Silva pulled it off.

It's truly fantastic and the only way Spurs could find to stop Silva was to bulldoze him over once the ball was in the air.

In the end, a goal from Lucas Moura won a point for Spurs - although, not without drama at the end.

With the score at 2-2, Gabriel Jesus smashed the ball into the net to spark wild celebrations, only for VAR to rule it out for handball.

It had inadvertently bounced of Ayermic Laporte's arm, it turns out.

And so City - and Silva - had to settle for a single point.
