Midfielder Fernandinho is in the form of his life for Manchester City, scoring three goals in his last five appearances, including one in the Sky Blues 3-2 New Year’s Day win over Swansea.
Fernandinho says that he is happy to find the back of the net, but the most important thing is the team and its continued success.
City’s win on New Year’s Day sees them in second place on the table with 44 points from 20 league games, one point behind leaders Arsenal.
Reflecting on the win and his goal against Swansea, Fernandinho admits it was a good wayto the start the year and City will look to continue in that trend.
“This was a good way to start the year, to score a goal and the team to win,” said Fernandinho.
“I hope I can keep playing like this and the team can keep winning,
“If I have success with City and Brazil this year that would be the best year of my life, of my career.
“But for now I must concentrate on the games and see what happens afterwards.
“We just have to prepare well for each game, and be ready.
“I hope we can keep challenging for all four trophies.
“It is always good when you score goals, you help your team.
“But the most important thing is the team and we showed we are a good strong team and we want to win the Premier League.
“I don't know why I am scoring more at the moment, for my three goals I was near the edge of the box and it means there is more chance to score.”
