Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola praised Bernardo Silva for his outstanding work against Crystal Palace.
City were 2-0 down in the contest at half-time, but it was Silva who got them back in the game with an early second half goal.
Erling Haaland then netted a hat-trick to ensure City emerged as 4-2 winners in the Premier League fixture on Saturday.
“I am happy that today Bernardo became a winning player,” Guardiola said post-game, per the club website.
“Of course all the highlights will be for Erling but we cannot forget again what Bernardo has done today, scoring the goal and creating on the right side in the second half.
“What I am amazed about Bernardo is when the game is going wrong he always steps forward.
“He loves to play in the games when the situation is uncomfortable. Few players make a step backwards and he makes a step forward and that is why Bernardo is irreplaceable for many things for us.”
