Manchester City winger Bernardo Silva hits back at suggestions by Burnley manager Sean Dyche that he cheated to win a penalty in his side's 3-0 win.

Manchester City winger Bernardo Silva has hit back at suggestions that he cheated to win a penalty during Saturday's Premier League clash with Burnley.

Bernardo went over theatrically inside the box under minimal contact from Nick Pope, but referee Roger East pointed to the spot and Sergio Aguero duly dispatched the penalty.

After the match, Burnley boss Sean Dyche suggested that Bernardo had made the most of the incident, but the Portuguese attacker has rejected accusations of diving.

"He clearly touched me, I felt it. I haven't seen the replay yet but I think it was a penalty," he told reporters.

City went on to win the match 3-0, claiming a club record-equalling 11th consecutive victory to move five points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
