Bernardo Silva has targeted a clean sweep as Manchester City continue their relentless march towards glory in four competitions.

The Portuguese scored one and set up another as City chalked up their 19th successive win in all competitions by beating Borussia Monchengladbach 2-0 in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday.

Overall, City, who are 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League, through to the Carabao Cup final and involved in the FA Cup quarter-finals, are now unbeaten in 26 matches stretching back to November.

City became the first club to win the English domestic treble two years ago and Silva hopes they can surpass even that achievement this year and add the Champions League for a quadruple.

"Of course, we are going to try (to win the Champions League)," said Silva.

"We know we have good momentum, but this is just the last 16. We are going to try and do well in the second leg to go through to the quarter-finals.

"Then we have the Premier League, the FA Cup, the Carabao Cup. It is going to be a tough season but we are going to try to win them all."

City dominated against the Bundesliga side with Silva heading home a cross from the impressive Joao Cancelo for the opener and then nodding down another fine delivery from his countryman for Gabriel Jesus to add the second.

Monchengladbach offered little but, despite the convincing nature of the performance, Silva is aware the job is not done yet.

"It is a very good result but nothing is done yet," said the 26-year-old.
