David Silva kept up his stellar form by bagging a brace as Manchester City plowed over another opponent, disposing of Swansea City, 0-4.
The Citizens can smell the title as we have yet to hit the halfway point of the season. Silva got today's scoring started in the 27th minute, when he flicked in a cross sent by Bernardo Silva. Seven minutes later, Raheem Sterling drew a foul that allowed Kevin de Bruyne to score a distance free kick. Silva put the game to bed early in the second half with his second goal, chipping the ball in after playing a lovely 1-2 with Sterling. Sergio Aguero, who came close to scoring many times over the course of the match, finally got his reward with the final goal, scoring from a tight angle after a pass from Yaya Toure. Spurs are up next, but even if City were to just draw at home in that one, they will be on pace to finish on 100 points in the table. Dec 13 - 4:47 PM

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that midfielder David Silva is fully fit for Sunday's showdown.

Earlier in the week, Guardiola said the midfielder would be a doubt for the weekend derby match with Manchester United before Silva was kept out of the club's Champions League match with Shakhtar Donetsk due to the knock. But in his pre-match press conference, the manager said Silva has been cleared for the club's biggest game of the season: "He’s going to play. The doctor told me in the beginning of the week there was a doubt about him playing but today he arrived and said he felt really good, so he’s going to play."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said that midfielder David Silva remains a doubt for the upcoming derby match with Manchester United.

Guardiola confirmed that Silva wouldn't be available to face Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday in a meaningless Champions League game for the group winners, but also said Silva, who leads the league in assists along with Kevin De Bruyne, could be missing at the weekend due to a knock: "David had a little bit of problems in the last minutes. We made a test after the game and I don't know if he is able to play on Sunday, so that's why he stayed there, to recover in Manchester. It's something, something uncomfortable he felt in the last minutes, before the goal he felt something. Hopefully he can be fit for Sunday but it was too risky to play him [Wednesday]." United manager Jose Mourinho has already written off Guardiola's claim as mind games ahead of the weekend.

Pep Guardiola won’t be taking any risks ahead of this weekends’ Manchester derby having already secured a place in the knockout phase of the Champions League.

City can relax knowing they have already won Group F on the back of five straight victories while their opponents – Shakhtar Donetsk – will progress if they avoid defeat against the Premier league leaders or if Napoli fail to beat Feyenoord. David Silva has been omitted from the travelling party due to an ongoing niggling injury while Kevin De Bruyne will also miss out as he is suspended for the game. Other notable absentees include John Stones [hamstring] who is said to be targeting a return around Christmas and Benjamin Mendy [ACL knee]. Youngsters Phil Foden, Brahim Diaz, Tosin Adarabioyo and Daniel Grimshaw have been drafted into the squad by Guardiola. Fringe players Bernardo Silva, Yaya Toure, Eliaquim Mangala, Danilo and Ilkay Gundogan could all start in the Ukraine while Gabriel Jesus is hoping to be named in the XI following his introduction from the bench on Sunday.

It was another struggle for Manchester City but it was their captain David Silva who scored late in the 2-1 win over West Ha m.

Manchester City haven't been at their rampant best over the past week but they have managed to pull out results anyway. Their first goal had a hint of controversy as Fabian Delph dove to win a free kick that led, eventually, to an equalizer. There was nothing wrong with the winner as Silva scored from a Kevin De Bruyne assist.

David Silva is expected to miss the International Champions Cup game against city rivals United in Texas on Friday.

City take on Jose Mourinho's men at the NRG Stadium in the early hours [3:05am BST] but the Spanish playmaker is expected to sit this one out after picking up a groin injury in training. Pep Guardiola is not prepared to take any risks with the start of the new Premier League season a little over 3 weeks away and Silva will be rested as a precaution. However, new signings Kyle Walker and goalkeeper Ederson could be in line to make their debuts while Gabriel Jesus has recovered from the fractured eye socket he sustained playing for Brazil. Leroy Sane is also back following nose surgery but Ilkay Gundogan is still missing due to a serious knee ligament injury [ruptured ACL].

Manchester City will be sweating on the fitness of midfielder David Silva ahead of Thursday's showdown with Manchester United.

It's a massive match for both sides as the Sky Blues sit just one point ahead of their rivals in the fourth and final Champions League spot with only six games left in the season. But while Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus for the match, Silva appears to be a major doubt after leaving the club's extra-time loss to Arsenal in the FA Cup semifinals on Sunday in the 23rd minute with an injury after taking a heavy challenge from Gabriel Paulista. Said Guardiola: "David Silva real, real doubt - I don’t know if he will be ready to play after what happened in the first minutes in the semi-final."

Even without the suspended Sergio Aguero, Manchester City didn't need much to work past Watford in a 2-0 win Wednesday.

But possibly even more than the attack moving along without its star forward, manager Pep Guardiola will surely be pleased with the clean sheet—only the club's third of the entire Premier League season following the return of Nicolas Otamendi from suspension. Pablo Zabaleta started the scoring in the 33rd minute when he connected with a cross from Kevin de Bruyne to give the club a 1-0 lead. Then it was David Silva's turn as the midfielder scored the club's second in the 86th minute of his 200th appearance for the side. However, the news wasn't all positive as Ilkay Gundogan went off with what appeared to be a serious knee injury.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed David Silva is unlikely to recover from a knock in time for Saturday's match against Bournemouth.

The Spanish midfielder missed the club's Champions League win over Borussia Monchengladbach, which was pushed back to Wednesday due to a flooded pitch, and still needs time to recover. Ilkay Gundogan filled in and is expected to see his Premier League debut this weekend. Said Guardiola: "I don’t think tomorrow will be enough. I didn’t see the doctor or David. I don’t think it’s a big, big problem but it happened two days ago so I don’t think he’ll be able to play. We had for the weather one more day regeneration, now we have one less but it is what it is. We have to use the players every few days."

The long-rumored move that will see Ilkay Gundogan move from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City has finally been announced.

The midfield creator has been linked to a move to the Etihad since around the time Pep Guardiola was announced as manager in February. A recent injury to his patellar tendon cast minor doubt over the move but it has now been confirmed. City needed to get younger in midfield with Yaya Toure and David Silva aging rapidly and this move will help significantly once Gundogan recovers from his injury and is at full strength. One side benefit of his injury is that he will not be featuring for Germany this summer in Euro 2016 but can instead focus on getting healthy and being ready for pre-season training at City.

Manchester City will once again have to do without midfield maestro David Silva, possibly for the remainder of the season, due to a hamstring injury.

The midfielder was taken off in the 40th minute against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg after feeling his hamstring and signaling to be taken off immediately. The injury came just after manager Manuel Pellegrini professed his hope that Silva had overcome a persistent ankle injury that he struggled with throughout the season. But now Pellegrini said he will miss the next two to three weeks and may not even return this season unless the club advances to the Champions League final at the end of next month.

Manchester City midfielder David Silva will be assessed this week after being taken off with a hamstring injury on Tuesday night.

Silva lasted only 40 minutes before coming away with yet another injury after missing parts of the season with a mixture of ankle and calf injuries. Silva only just returned from an ankle injury over the weekend against Stoke City after missing the last three Premier League matches. But the Spaniard knee he was crocked and immediately called to the bench in the first leg of the Champions League semifinal against Real Madrid, a 0-0 draw. Now the midfielder is in doubt to return for next week's second leg at the Bernabeu, let alone this weekend as the club will hope to have Yaya Toure back as well.

Manchester City fans will be relieved to see David Silva back in action after the midfielder was cleared for the weekend.

The Spanish maestro has missed the last three Premier League games, although he did face Paris Saint-Germain in between that run of games, due to an ankle injury that has beleaguered him throughout the season. But Manuel Pellegrini confirmed that Silva is fit to face Stoke City, which will be a welcome addition to the team ahead of Tuesday's Champions League semifinal showdown with Real Madrid. Silva is likely to replace Samir Nasri, who is not on the club's Champions League roster, as the Frenchman recovers from a muscle injury with the hope of being available to face Southampton next weekend.

David Silva has been ruled out for another match as the Manchester City maestro struggles to overcome an ankle injury.

The midfielder has been subbed off in five of his last seven matches for the club in all competitions due to an ankle injury that has affected him throughout the season. Silva sat out last weekend's win against West Bromwich Albion in order to be fit to face Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals this week. But Manuel Pellegrini confirmed that Silva will miss the weekend run-in with Chelsea with a double gameweek ahead. As he did against West Brom, Samir Nasri will likely get the start against the reigning Premier League champions.

Manchester City will be the closest its been in 2016 to full strength in the club's biggest game against the season on Tuesday against PSG.

Manuel Pellegrini confirmed David Silva and Yaya Toure will be fit to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League quarterfinal second leg following a 2-2 draw last week at the Parc des Princes. Silva missed the weekend win against West Bromwich Albion after sustaining a knock to his injury-prone ankle in the first leg but was cleared by Manuel Pellegrini to return. Meanwhile, Toure returned against West Brom and played 30 minutes, coming on as a second-half substitute, after missing Week 32 against Bournemouth.
