Everton's Bernard believes he and fellow Brazilian Richarlison could be at the start of something special for the club.
The duo joined the Toffees in the summer, with Bernard a free transfer, a move that was in stark contrast to his compatriot, who came in as the Merseysiders' record signing.
After scoring twice on his debut at Wolves, Richarlison's form has seen him called up for Brazil, netting a brace in September against El Salvador.
Marco Silva has moved him into a more central role in recent weeks, allowing him to team up with Bernard, while also accommodating Theo Walcott and Gylfi Sigurdsson.
After winning 2-1 at Leicester before the international break, Everton sit 11th in the Premier League table.
Sunday sees the Toffees take on Crystal Palace and they are 4/5 to win the game, with the draw 5/2 and the Eagles 7/2.
Bernard will again be hoping to get the nod alongside the former Watford man and is clearly encouraged by what they have produced so far.
The 26-year-old says Richarlison deserves the current plaudits coming his way and is confident their understanding will prove increasingly fruitful as they continue to build their bond.
"Richarlison has been doing brilliantly and is a great player to have with us," Bernard told evertontv.
"He deserves everything he has been getting. It feels good to play together.
"For his goal [against Leicester], it felt good for me to help the team and with it being a Brazilian player scoring, it was even more special. Now we want to keep going and achieve more."
Everton are 8/1 to finish in the top six this season.
