In 25 matches, including 23 starts this season, he has registered eight goals and seven assists. The 23-year-old has taken 65 shots, including 27 on target. He scored a goal and added an assist in a 3-1 win over FC Copenhagen in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League on Feb. 13.

Another offensive weapon for the Citizens is midfielder Bernardo Silva. The native of Portugal has six goals and four assists in 21 appearances, including 18 starts. The 29-year-old scored a goal on three shots, including one on target, in the win over FC Copenhagen. Silva, in his seventh season with Manchester City, has 39 goals in 220 league appearances.
