Middlesbrough pulled off an FA Cup upset as they beat Premier League champions Manchester City 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium.Patrick Bamford’s goal in the early stages of the second half put Boro ahead and substitute *** doubled the lead in stoppage time to take the Championship side into the last 16.Although there were opportunities for Willy Caballero and Dedryck Boyata, City boss Manuel Pellegrini named a strong side that included the likes of Vincent Kompany, David Silva and Sergio Aguero so could hardly point to a weakened line-up.But in a game that pitted a former Real Madrid coach in Pellegrini against a former assistant manager at the Bernabeu in Boro boss Aitor Karanka, it was an ex-Real goalkeeper that stole the show.Tomas Mejias made just one La Liga appearance for the Spanish giants prior to joining Middlesbrough last year but showed plenty of class in a hugely impressive display to deny City.Mejias kept out Stevan Jovetic’s rasping shot from distance before pulling off a

Man City star David Silva wary of the threat of the Premier League's smaller clubs
Premier League round-up Manchester City wasted the chance to close within a point of Premier League leaders Chelsea as Burnley fought back to claim a famous 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium. City looked to be in cruise control when they led 2-0 at half-time, knowing Chelsea had already failed to win, with David Silva firing them into the lead on 23 and Fernandinho smashing home a second 10 minutes later. But they were undone by a superb second-half fightback by Sean Dyche's side, who got back into the game two minutes after the break when George Boyd glanced the ball home, seemingly from an offside position. The Clarets continued to press and could have equalised a couple of times before Ashley Barnes sensationally lashed the ball into the top corner nine minutes from time. Earlier, Chelsea’s winning run came to an end at St Mary’s where they were held to a 1-1 draw by an under-strength Southampton, who also had Morgan Schneiderlin sent off in the closing minutes. Sadio Mane put the Saints in front on 1 ...
EPL ROUND UP Chelsea maintained top spot on the Barclays Premier League table thanks to a 2-0 home win over West Ham United on Boxing Day. The Blues recorded their 14th victory of the campaign to stay three points clear of second-placed Manchester City thanks to goals from John Terry and Diego Costa either side of the break. Captain Terry netted his second goal in as many matches when he slotted home Costa’s knockdown header in the 32nd minute before the Spanish striker grabbed his 13th of the season in the 61st minute when finishing across goal with his left foot after a dazzling run. Reigning champions City kept up pace with Chelsea by putting in a commanding performance at West Bromwich Albion to win 3-1. First-half goals from Fernando (first for the club), Yaya Toure (penalty) and David Silva gave Manuel Pellegrini’s side the advantage before a first Premier League goal for record signing Brown Ideye pulled one back for the Baggies late. Manchester United stayed third on the table, 10 points behin ...
Yaya Toure shrugged off John Terry's claim the title-race pressure is all on Manchester City by leading Manuel Pellegrini's men to a 3-1 victory at West Brom. Chelsea captain Terry said "it's going to be tough" for his side's rivals to stay close to the pacesetters after the Blues took a temporary six-point Premier League lead with a 2-0 victory over West Ham. Terry also said Chelsea's early Boxing Day kick-off and ninth consecutive Premier League victory at Stamford Bridge heaped the pressure on second-placed City. Toure and company had other ideas however, the Ivorian netting a penalty to send City 2-0 up in just 13 minutes at The Hawthorns following Fernando's opener. David Silva added City's third goal in the first half, before the visitors shut up shop to coast home after the turnaround despite Brown Ideye netting for West Brom late on. The Etihad Stadium side stretched their winning run to nine games in all competitions, and seven in the Premier League. Terry's header and Diego Costa's 13th goal of ...

David Silva gives Manchester City win over Crystal Palace, Manchester United held by Aston Villa: David Silva sparkled for Manchester City with two goals in a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace that wiped out Chelsea's lead at the top of the Premier League table on Saturday and added festive spice to the title race. Manchester United's pursuit of the table-toppers stalled with a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa, their first dropped points in seven games, as local rivals City came through an encounter with Palace that threatened to turn into a frustrating occasion. Silva eased an increasingly tense atmosphere at the Etihad Stadium when he broke the deadlock shortly after halftime and then put an efficient victory to bed with his second goal soon after. Yaya Toure emphatically smashed home a late third. The victory for City, who are having to cope without all their main strikers through injury, moved them level on 39 points with Chelsea, who visit Stoke City on Monday, and ignited a title battle that had looked to be a one ...

Nasri writes his name into Manchester City folklore COMMENT: The Frenchman smashed an unstoppable shot from 25 yards beyond Morgan De Sanctis before setting up Pablo Zabaleta to seal a famous win for Manuel Pellegrini's men Dec 11, 2014 00:45:00By Liam Twomey As Manchester City took to the Stadio Olympico pitch for their date with destiny, Manuel Pellegrini knew he would need a new hero. Only twice since Sergio Aguero’s arrival from Atletico Madrid in July 2011 had City started a football match without any of Vincent Kompany, Yaya Toure, David Silva or their Argentine superstar. On both occasions – at the Etihad against West Brom in the Premier League in May last year and Blackburn in the FA Cup in January – they had won, but Rudi Garcia’s Roma on home turf were always going to present a starkly different challenge. Such are the resources available to Pellegrini that City still boasted arguably the stronger XI on paper but, as the Premier League champions have repeatedly found to their cost in Eur ...
Joe Hart due to sign new Manchester City contract Richard Jolly December 5, 2014 MANCHESTER -- Joe Hart is set to sign a new contract with Manchester City imminently. The goalkeeper, whose current deal expires in 2016, has been in talks with the Premier League champions for several months about an extension. And manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed he expects the 27-year-old to give the club a boost by putting pen to paper soon. "I always said it is important for this club to keep Joe with us," Pellegrini said in a news conference. "He is a very good goalkeeper and not only a very good goalkeeper, he is a very important player for the squad also, so maybe in the next days you will have good news." Hart will become the seventh City player to sign a contract extension this year after Aleksandar Kolarov, Samir Nasri, Vincent Kompany, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko. The former Birmingham loanee has made 275 appearances for City since his arrival from Shrewsbury in 2006. Pellegrini dropped Hart for a ...

Premier League round-up Southampton moved into second place in the Premier League with a 1-0 win over Stoke City at St Mary's on a bad day for champions Manchester City. Although unable to match their goal-scoring exploits from the 8-0 win over Sunderland last weekend, Ronald Koeman's side secured three points thanks to a goal from Sadio Mane. Graziano Pelle was denied a second goal by the crossbar but their stingy defence held on well and the points allowed them to leapfrog Manchester City - they are now sitting three points behind Chelsea who take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday. City were beaten 2-1 by West Ham in the lunchtime kick-off, with Diafra Sakho continuing his fine scoring run as Sam Allardyce's side retained fourth place. Morgan Amalfitano gave the Hammers a 21st minute lead and Sakho scored in his sixth consecutive game to add to their lead with 15 minutes to go. David Silva responded two minutes later but West Ham's defence held off a series of attacks to secure the points a ...
Sterling, who told Roy Hodgson he was too tired to play for England, has performed more sprints, over a greater distance and reached a higher top speed than Premier League rivals such as Manchester City's David Silva and Chelsea's Eden Hazard so far this season Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has denied he put pressure on Hodgson to leave Sterling out, saying: "I haven't said a single word." ---J!m0$k!---
Manchester City midfielder David Silva acknowledged his side cannot afford to lose against Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday. Chelsea have made a blistering start to the season with four wins from as many matches, scoring 15 goals in the process. New signing Diego Costa has already bagged seven league goals - four more than any other player - and they sit five points clear of champions City ahead of the Etihad Stadium clash. And despite the early nature of the season, Silva is fully aware of the importance of avoiding defeat against Jose Mourinho's in-form men. Question: Who has a brighter chance of winning, Manchester City or Chelsea?
Pardew sees positives in loss Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew admitted that a 2-0 defeat was tough to take after an encouraging performance against Manchester City. Goals from David Silva and Sergio Aguero secured victory for the Premier League champions at St James' Park, but it was an evenly contested encounter. While Newcastle did not carve out many good chances, they put City under pressure at times and there were good displays from summer signings Daryl Janmaat, Jack Colback, Remy Cabella and Emmanuel Riviere. Rolando Aarons and Ayoze Perez also impressed as substitutes and Pardew was disappointed not to take anything from the match, but had plenty of reasons to be positive. He told Sky Sports: "It was frustrating for us because in the second half we really pushed on up and put some younger players on, who were a bit naive at times but who threatened with their pace. We just couldn't get that equaliser. "I feel that if we could have got that then we could have gone on to win it because we looked li ...
PL PREVIEW FOR 17th August Newcastle - Man City 20:45 NST This is the reverse of last season's opening Barclays Premier League fixture when Newcastle United lost 0-4 at the Etihad Stadium. The Citizens have won four and lost none of their last five opening weekend league fixtures, keeping four clean sheets in the process. Newcastle have won just once in the last five seasons in their opening match (D2 L2). The Magpies have failed to score in their last three Barclays Premier League clashes with Manchester City. Man City full backs Aleksandar Kolarov (7) and Pablo Zabaleta (6) assisted more goals than any other defenders in the 2013-14 Premier League. Frank Lampard is the top scoring midfielder in Premier League history with 171 goals, as many as Aguero, Dzeko, Yaya Toure, David Silva and Vincent Kompany combined. Despite winning only two of their opening eight away games last season, City still ended the campaign with 34 road points. Only Liverpool and Arsenal (35) gained more (Man Utd & Chelsea also coll ...

Alan Pardew compared Newcastle United new boy Remy Cabella to Manchester City's stars following his team's 2-0 defeat to the champions. Cabella was superb in his Premier League debut at St James' Park on Sunday, as Newcastle competed well with City. The France international, who joined from Montpellier last month, posed a constant threat in a game the visitors won thanks to goals in each half from David Silva and Sergio Aguero. And Cabella's efforts did not go un-noticed, with Newcastle boss Pardew lauding him and fellow debutant Jack Colback.

Joe Hart believes Premier League champions Manchester City have now established themselves as one of English football's superpowers. Sheikh Mansour's takeover in 2008 heralded a new era at the club, with global stars such as Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and David Silva being brought to the Etihad Stadium. And City's haul of two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup in the last three years is evidence for Hart that they are now among the country's footballing elite.
Confirmed Spain 23man Squad for Brazil. Surprise, surprise... Nando makes the cut. Vincent Del Bosque has whittled his initial 30 man Spain World Cup squad down to the final 23, cutting seven players from his initial squad. Injury robbed the Spain boss of Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara, but an embarrassment of riches across the park means that the squad contains some notable omissions. Manchester City pair Jesus Navas and Alvaro Negredo both miss out, with the latter being omitted in favour of Chelsea forward Fernando Torres. At the back, Del Bosque has kept all four of his initial centre backs, but has cut two of his full backs. Liverpool target Alberto Moreno and Real Madrid full back Daniel Carvajal have both been dropped from the initial squad, with Cesar Azpilicueta staying in as cover for both full back positions. In midfield, Navas and Thiago are joined on the plane home by Bilbao’s Ander Iturraspe, while Premier League trio David Silva, Juan Mata and Santi Cazorla have all made the cu ...

Eden Hazard is probably as gifted a player as any in the Premier League, but what he does not have is the support that the likes of Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho, Daniel Sturridge, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Samir Nasri enjoy when they take to the field. It is not because Chelsea don’t have a talented supporting cast; far from it, they have some fantastic players. It’s just that, well, as Hazard himself said, they aren’t set up to play football are they?
Crystal Palace vs Manchester City . Premier League. Venue : Selhurst Park. Live Coverage : 27 April, 2014. 20:40 IST live on SS4 and HD2. TEAM NEWS Crystal Palace: Marouane Chamakh missed last weekend’s victory at West Ham United and is touch-and-go to make the Palace 18 against Manchester City. Other than that, Tony Pulis has no new injury concerns as he bids to mastermind another Selhurst Park upset. Manchester City: Playmaker David Silva is likely to miss Sunday’s game after an ankle injury forced him off on a stretcher in Monday night’s victory over West Brom. The Spaniard had a scan on the injury earlier this week. Top scorer Yaya Toure has missed the last fortnight through injury, but he is in contention to provide a real boost to the Citizens’ ranks by returning this weekend. Jesus Navas and Matija Nastasic are both ruled out though through ankle and knee injuries receptively.

PELLEGRINI SWEATS OVER DAVID SILVA FITNESS Manchester City MIDFIELDER JOINS Yaya Toure ON INJURY TABLE Manchester City midfielder David Silva was stretchered off in Tuesday night’s Premier League game against West Bromwich Albion and there are fears he could miss the remainder of the season. City triumphed over the Baggies 3-1 to keep the pressure on Liverpool at the top of the table, but a recurring ankle problem could force Silva unable to participate in the club’s final four games. The exit brings a sour note to a well earned victory, but the Citizens cannot slip up anymore if they are to make up the six points the Red have over them. “We will see tomorrow (Tuesday) what has happened,” Pellegrini told Sky Sports. “David played the last three games with pain in his ankle and that is why it wasn’t possible for him to play against Sunderland (last week). “He got a kick some weeks ago and every week he has played the game with pain. It is hard to tell without the doctors giving their assessme ...
so the 6 nominees for the Premier League player of the year are: Wayne Rooney, Luis Suarez, Stephen Gerrard, Daniel Sturridge, Edin Hazard and David Silva? how is Yaya Toure not there? how is it that half the list are Liverpool players? as much as i hate Toure, he has been the best midfielder in the league this year. something is a little bit off in the selection process.
TOP TEN EPL PERFORMER THIS SEASON 10. David Silva (Man City) The usual level of brilliance from the pint sized Spaniard, assists aplenty and plenty more besides. Always capable of a defence splitting pass and if Man City win the title then Silva will have played a pivotal role. 9. Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal) It's no coincidence that Arsenal's Premier League title push has faded since the Welshman suffered a thigh injury that has kept him out of action since Boxing Day. The fact that he features on this list despite that length of time out says just the level of form he displayed before injury. 8. Seamus Coleman (Everton) Republic of Ireland wing-back has been in inspired form this season and his attacking forays have greatly aided Everton's efforts in the final third and he's been calm and assured at the back to boot. 7. Steven Gerrard (Liverpool) The Anfield veteran is displaying his best form in years. Goals galore, regular assists have been a feature of a season that has seen Gerrard adopt a more withdrawn ...
Arsenal and Manchester City manager reaction Arsene Wenger and Manuel Pellegrini give thoughts after 1-1 draw Arsenal and Manchester City played out a 1-1 draw at the Emirates Stadium this evening which gives Liverpool the slightest of edges in this season's Premier League title race. After seeing Chelsea lose to Crystal Palace, City knew that if they could beat Arsenal, they would jump above Jose Mourinho's men and onto top-spot and after David Silva gave them a 16th minute lead, it looked like number-one spot was going to go to Pellegrini's men. However, a second-half strike from Mathieu Flamini denied City the chance and gave The Gunners a much-needed confidence boost. The game ended 1-1 and after the game, the two managers spoke to the press, and here is what they had to say. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "In the second half we controlled the game but we could not score a second goal. It was a good game with two quality teams and very tight. "I was confident we could win it but, after what we have go ...

Edin Dzeko scored twice as Manchester City heaped more misery on Manchester United with a 3-0 victory on Tuesday to move to within three points of Premier League leaders Chelsea with two games in hand. Dzeko needed just 43 seconds to give City the lead in a Manchester Derby at United's Old Trafford ground. Rafael's last-ditch tackle blocked David Silva's run into the box but Samir Nasri hit the post and Dzeko followed up to sidefoot in the rebound. The Bosnian striker was on target again in the 56th minute when he dropped marker Rio Ferdinand to volley in Nasri's corner, Yaya Toure rubbed salt into United's wounds with a third goal in the 90th minute as Manuel Pellegrini's men, now second in the table, completed a derby double following a 4-1 win over United at Eastlands in September.

Chelsea's Premier League title hopes were dented by a shock 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa which saw them reduced to nine men. Delph scored the winner for Aston Villa as they beat Chelsea. ENDWorrall: Blues see red • Delaney: Three Things The second-half dismissal of Willian for two yellow cards left them vulnerable before Fabian Delph met a Marc Albrighton cross with a backheel finish in the 82nd minute to secure all three points. Delph had the chance to score a second for Villa in the dying moments, but struck the crossbar before Ramires and Jose Mourinho were also given their marching orders, Ramires for a lunging challenge on the ankle of Karim El Ahmadi and Mourinho for dissent. That leaves Chelsea in danger of being overtaken by Manchester City, who shrugged off a 10th-minute red card for captain Vincent Kompany as they secured a 2-0 win at Hull to go second in the Premier League, six points behind Chelsea with three games in hand. David Silva struck a superb long-range opener just four minutes after K ...
Maybe it won't be a procession to the Premier League trophy for Chelsea, after all. The title race in England was thrown wide open by Chelsea's stormy 1-0 loss to Aston Villa, while Bayern closed in on championship in Germany with another win and Real Madrid extended its lead in Spain. Here is a look at the action from the leading leagues in Europe on Saturday: ___ ENGLAND Chelsea threw the Premier League title race wide open by losing 1-0 at Aston Villa, ensuring Manchester City trimmed the gap to the leaders to six points with a battling 2-0 win at Hull. Chelsea saw Willian and Ramires sent off, and manager Jose Mourinho sent to the stands, in a wild end to a match settled by Fabian Delph's impudent 82nd-minute goal at Villa Park. City leapfrogged Arsenal and Liverpool into second place by overcoming the 10th-minute sending-off of captain Vincent Kompany to win at Hull thanks to goals by David Silva and Edin Dzeko.

Messi’s neat strike saves the day 13 March By Tim Hanlon Barcelona - Lionel Messi struck to end Manchester City's dreams of a famous comeback as Barcelona beat the English club 2-1 at the Nou Camp on Wednesday to reach the Champions League quarter-finals 4-1 on aggregate. Barca looked far from the classic team who lifted the trophy in 2009 and 2011 but a stuttering version under Gerardo Martino that had lost two of their last three games was still far too strong for the Premier League club. City, who lost the first leg of the last-16 tie 2-0 at home, were a constant threat to the Spanish champions, but they were left to rue missed chances by David Silva, Samir Nasri and Pablo Zabaleta. Captain Vincent Kompany levelled for the visitors on the night with a tap-in in the 89th minute, but Dani Alves responded by sweeping home the winner in the first minute of stoppage time. City had been reduced to 10 men by then after Zabaleta was shown a second yellow card for dissent in the 78th minute. The Argentine def ...
What struck me about the past two nights in Barcelona's 2-0 win at Manchester City and Bayern Munich's 2-0 stroll against Arsenal is that the Premier League can't buy the best players. They can buy most players, but not the very best. Barcelona and Bayern Munich tend to hold onto their best players. They don't need or want to sell. And their best players don't want to leave. Spanish clubs didn't go for some of City's best players such as David Silva, Alvaro Negredo and Jesus Navas. There was only two Spanish clubs that could have bought them in Barcelona and Real Madrid , but they opted against signing them. They thought to themselves: 'We've probably got better players at our club. And have probably got better players in our system.' It is similar with Bayern Munich. Why weren't they looking to bring in a player like Mesut Ozil last summer? We saw why last night. Bayern were better than Arsenal in everything they did, but mainly in work-rate and attitude. They're going to look at a guy like Ozil and thin ...

HAPPY New Year TO EVERYONE. We hope 2014 will bring you a great year of football which ever team you support. So, let us take a look at the games to be played on the fist day of the year. Swansea City v Manchester City (Kick-Off 12:45 UK / 1:45 p.m. Nigeria) Swansea remain without Michu, Michel Vorm and Nathan Dyer, all of whom are recovering from injury. Angel Rangel and Wayne Routledge could return to the starting line-up after beginning on the bench at Aston Villa. Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart is available despite requiring five stitches in a gash under his left eye. David Silva is suspended after amassing five yellow cards, while Sergio Aguero, Martin Demichelis, Stevan Jovetic and Micah Richards remain injured. MATCH PREVIEW It's generally agreed that the rest of this Premier League season is going to be fascinating, at both ends of the table. Manchester City are a point behind leaders Arsenal, and know that victory in the early New Year's Day fixture will see them reclaim top spot, even if on ...
Manchester City 6 – 3 Arsenal Manchester City boosted their hopes of regaining the Premier League title and dealt Arsenal’s ambiitons a major blow with a 6-3 win today. The 2011-12 champions went into the game six points adrift of Arsene Wenger’s league leaders but moved within striking distance of the Londoners by claiming the spoils in an enthralling encounter. Sergio Aguero opened the scoring for City, volleying home from a corner, only for the returning Theo Walcott to level midway through the first half. Alvaro Negredo turned home Pablo Zabaleta’s cross to put the hosts back in front and City looked to have made the game safe when Fernandinho scored his first goal for the club early in the second half. England winger Walcott curled home a delightful second as Arsenal rallied, yet David Silva converted Jesus Navas’s cross to make it 4-2 and Fernandinho struck again in the 88th minute. An injury-time header from Per Mertesacker provided little consolation for the visitors, particularly as the ...
Manuel Pellegrini: Did not appear to know a 4-2 win would have won the group Manuel Pellegrini appeared to be unaware that Manchester City needed only one more goal against Bayern Munich to top their UEFA Champions League group. City were 2-0 down at the Allianz Arena inside the opening 12 minutes, but drew level through goals from David Silva and Aleksandar Kolarov before James Milner put the Premier League side ahead on 62 minutes. A fourth goal would have seen City top Group D by virtue of a better head-to-head record against Bayern, who won 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium earlier in the competition. However, with two minutes to go, Pellegrini replaced striker Edin Dzeko with midfielder Jack Rodwell and appeared to suggest he thought City required a 5-2 win in order to finish first. "It is very important to be first in the group but not the most important thing. It was difficult to score two goals and I think that Silva couldn't play more than 70 minutes." The City boss told Sky Sports when asked if he was t ...
OFF-COLOUR MUNICH LOSE BUT WIN GROUP Bayern’s imperious winning run came to a temporary halt on Tuesday night as Pep Guardiola’s side fell 3-2 at home to Manchester City in their final Champions League Group D fixture, but a one-goal advantage in the head-to-head comparison was enough to ensure the Bavarians finished top of the section ahead of the Premier League outfit. The 68,000 full house at the Allianz Arena saw the home team dominate from the off and make a dream start with goals from Thomas Müller and Mario Götze in the first 12 minutes, but the Bundesliga side shifted down a gear and David Silva pulled one back after half an hour. The pace dropped through to half-time, but City were a different proposition after the break and captain Aleksandar Kolarov levelled from the spot on the hour. England international James Milner then handed the Premier League side a 62nd-minute lead, and for all their efforts, FCB were ultimately unable to prise apart the visitors’ packed defence and stave off th ...
TONIGHT'S TREBLE! UEFA Champions League: GROUP D Bayern Munich VS Manchester City KICK OFF AT 19.45 GMT FACTS Bayern Munich Bayern are all but guaranteed top spot in Group D, but won't take any risks and should field a strong team for the visit of Manchester City. Philipp Lahm could return to the side after missing Saturday's 7-0 thrashing of Werder Bremen. Arjen Robben is amongst those to miss out through injury. Manchester City David Silva could return for City, but they are unlikely to risk him in a match that is almost a dead rubber, particularly given that they face Premier League leaders Arsenal this weekend. Yaya Toure is suspended after picking up a third yellow card in the Champions League last time out. Joe Hart will again play in goal. STATISTICS Bayern have won their last 10 matches in the Champions League (including qualifiers). There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Man City's last 5 games in the Champions League (including qualifiers). Bayern have scored at least 2 goals in 9 of their las ...

Which midfielder is the best finisher in the Premier League?. 1-Aaron Ramsey . 2-Charlie Adam. 3-Oscar. 4-David Silva
Both sides are coming into this game to show they have Champion or Champions League class after suffering disappointing defeats to North East opposition on their last Premier League outing. Manchester City will feel they need to keep up their 100% record, though they sit in eighth place they still remain favourites with the bookmakers to regain the Premier League title given how tight the table is. Spurs on the other hand are a very difficult side to break time, yet have found goals hard to come by this season as they sit fractionally above City in the league table. On the injury front, it may be a week too early for City’s captain Vincent Kompany to come back into the side as he continues his recovery from a thigh injury whilst David Silva isn’t expected to be available for selection for at least another ten days as he has a calf injury. For Spurs left-back Danny Rose could be fit enough for a return to the squad but their boss, Andre Villas-Boas, may persist with Jan Vertonghen at left-back so he do ...

DEADLIEST PASSERS IN THE FINAL THIRD The players from the English top tier with the sharpest eye in and around the opponent's box. Creativity of course makes goals and as the old football cliche goes, 'the best form of defence is possession' so completing passes in the final third is a great asset. Here are the five best passers from the Premier League so far in 2013/14. 5.= David Silva, Manchester City Passes: 54. It's been another great season for the Spaniard at City and Silva has been linking up well with the ever impressive Sergio Aguero. However, the 27-year-old needs to try and make this count more on the road for the Citizens, with.four losses away from home already this term. 5.= Seamus Coleman, Everton Passes: 54. Coleman has developed into a first team talent at.Goodison Park this season under Roberto Martinez and has arguably been one of the finest full-backs in the division. With Leighton Baines on the other flank and Sylvain Distin and capain Phil Jagielka in the middle, the Toffees have an ...
Goal have published their Premier League team of the week. I must admit that I was surprised to see Enrique in there. In my opinion, he has been at fault for our last two goals conceded. I do not knock Liverpool players, but his marking in the penalty area was poor. On the other hand, he did provide two assists for our goals! Have a look at the team below. I think they have left out one very important player! Match day seven provided extremely fierce competition for places in Goal's Premier League Team of the Week, with 10 players who will feel disappointed to miss out. Ron Vlaar, Mark Noble, Oscar, David Silva, Ahmed El Mohamady, Sergio Aguero, Saido Berahino, Yaya Toure, Pablo Zabaleta and Daniel Sturridge all narrowly missed out, which goes to show the fine performances on display in England this week. Artur Boruc (4), however, is the standout candidate to don the gloves after providing a number of saves to help Southampton record victory against Swansea. His distribution left something to be desired a ...

Manchester City are on the brink if agreeing a £23 million deal with Sevilla to sign Spanish hitman Alvaro Negredo. The 2 clubs have been in talks for over a fortnight and it looks like the transfer of the 27 year old could be announced before the weekend. Sevilla wanted almost £30 million for their top goal scorer who has netted 70 goals in 139 La Liga appearances for the Andalusian club over the past 4 seasons. But City have been able to get him for slightly less, with additional clauses potentially taking the total outlay to nearer £25 million if Negredo helps win back the Premier League title and tastes success in the Champions League. Negredo's arrival bolsters City's strikeforce which has lost Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez in the last 2 transfer windows and he will become the 3rd Spanish international on the club's books, joining ex team mate Jesus Navas and David Silva. City hae tracked Negredo for a while with scout Rob Newman having watched almost every Sevilla home game last season.
The Brazilian website have compiled a list of the 50 most valuable talents taking part in the Confederations Cup in Brazil, and new Barca signing Neymar tops the lot, with an estimated value of €67.4 million. Spanish club team-mate Andres Iniesta is in 2nd place with a worth of €61.6 million, while Cesc Fabregas is valued at €56.2 million to put him in 4th place behind Chelsea target and Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani (€56.4m). Manchester City's David Silva is the highest-placed Premier League player on the list with a value of just over €45 million placed on his head - enough to put him in 5th place ahead of Chelsea ace Juan Mata (44.7m) in 6th. Other Premier League players on the list include Liverpool's Luis Suarez (38.7m,9th), Chelsea youngster Oscar (€32.6m, 15th) The Confederations Cup gets underway tomorrow when Brazil take on Japan, with the champions crowned on June 30. 20 most valuable players at the Confederations Cup (€): Neymar - 67.4 Iniesta - 61.6 Cavani - 56.4 Fabregas - 56.2 ...
Manchester United could be in line for a remarkable double swoop on Barcelona's midfield this summer with Cesc Fabregas and Thiago Alcantara in their sights. Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany was allowed to play for an hour with a broken nose for Belgium last week - a decision that could have cost him dearly according to one doctor. Manchester City new boy Jesus Navas cannot wait to get flying in the Premier League alongside his Spain team-mate David Silva. Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is linked with Napoli move as Reds prepared to listen to offers for him. Liverpool's Luis Suarez says he would love to play with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid. Everton will start next season with a "Rolls Royce" of a pitch once they have finished a major renovation at Goodison Park. - Jay
TRANSFER; latest SKY BLUE TO SKY BLUE? ... Edinson Cavani IT’S getting towards that time again — flashbulbs at Press conferences, freshly-printed names on shirts and smiling managers — transfer season is here. July 1 sees the official opening of the transfer window for the first time since January — and do not expect Europe’s richest clubs to scrimp. Marquee signings Neymar, Falcao and Wilfried Zaha are already on the move, but what of those who haven't? At SunSport, we have put together a list of the 10 hottest transfer targets this summer. Isco (Malaga and Spain) HE is likely to follow Manuel Pellegrini to the Etihad Stadium after two seasons in southern Spain. Isco, an attacking midfielder, would slot into the mould with other similar players such as Samir Nasri and David Silva. His close control and ability to beat players is the envy of Spain’s La Liga — but whether he will survive in the more physical Premier League remains to be seen. He will surely aid City’s bid to fare better in ...
Ever wondered how much the top Premier League players earn? Well now you can find out. We can compare their pay to the worlds top earners, Messi, Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic and Eto'o. The Cameroon international earns enough to buy a Mars bar every second. 10. Frank Lampard: £140,000 Per Week Frank Lampards contract runs out soon, and speculation is mounting as to what he will do next, will he stay? will he leave? who knows, but what we do know is that despite the lack of time on his contract, he certainly doesn't lack money. Frank earns £140,000 a week. 9. Samir Nasri: £150,000 Per Week Being an Arsenal fan, im obviously not the biggest fan of Nasri, and personally I believe he was better playing for Arsenal than for Manchester City. The Frenchman earns £150,000 a week. 8. David Silva: £160,000 Per Week Another highly paid city player, bit this time one that I admire. David Silva moved to Manchester City from Valencia in 2010 earning £160,000 a week. The city star is a popular choice for the Spanish nati ...

A Carlos Tevez-inspired City are back at Wembley after ruthlessly casting aside Barnsley in a one-sided FA Cup quarter-final at the Etihad Stadium. The brilliant Tevez scored a hat-trick and set up goals for Aleks Kolarov and David Silva in the 5-0 win as the Blues booked their place in the semi-final in emphatic style. On this evidence, nobody will want to draw the Premier League champions - who are still yet to concede a goal in the competition so far - in tomorrow’s draw. Roberto Mancini took the opportunity to rest a number of key personnel for the visit of the Tykes. With Vincent Kompany, Jack Rodwell and Sergio Aguero still side-lined with injury, Javi Garcia, Gael Clichy, Matija Nastasic, Joe Hart and James Milner were all relegated to the bench.
Did you know that Shinji Kagawa has scored more goals (in Premier League) that David Silva, Jack Wilshere and Oscar.

City v Chelsea: Top five connections. We take a look at the links between the two clubs ahead of this weekend's Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium. Can you name any 5 connections ahead of the super Sunday? Lets Juggle your mind a little bit. Shaun Wright-Phillips Famously let go by Nottingham Forest for being “too small”, Shaun Wright-Phillips certainly proved that size doesn’t matter after breaking through City’s Academy to make more than 150 appearances for the Blues between 1999 and 2005. He broke City hearts by joining Chelsea in 2005 but after three years in the capital found he made a hero's return under Mark Hughes in 2008. SWP made a further 64 appearances for City in his second spell before the signings of Adam Johnson and David Silva saw him fall down the pecking order prompting his transfer to QPR. Daniel Sturridge City Academy product Daniel Sturridge won the FA Youth Cup in 2008 and made 16 appearances for the first-team before joining Chelsea on a tribunal in 2009. Despite fl ...
Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino believes his side will have to be at their best in order to get anything from their upcoming clash with Manchester City. The 40-year-old, who replaced Nigel Adkins as Saints boss in January, has led his new club to two draws and a defeat in his first three matches. And he accepts that earning a maiden win on Saturday will be a big ask, with St Mary's hosting the reigning Premier League champions. Pochettino told the club's official website: "All of our matches are difficult in this division, but we know that Manchester City were the champions last season so we will need to be at our best to beat them. "For me, Manchester City are a great team with great individual players and they can decide a match on their own." The Argentine believes his compatriots Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero are amongst City's biggest threats, but also highlighted the qualities of David Silva. He continued: "I can be proud of them because they are Argentinian, and I enjoy seeing them play bo ...
ENGLISH FA CUP- MATCH REPORT: Stoke 0-1 Manchester City: Late Zabaleta strike sends Mancini’s men through to fifth round A late goal from Pablo Zabaleta ensured that Manchester City progressed to the FA Cup fifth round after a hard-fought tie with fellow Premier League outfit Stoke City. Despite the Premier League champions enjoying the best of the action for the majority of the game, they were unable to break Stoke down for the most part, with David Silva coming closest in the first half with a curling effort that rattled the woodwork. However, an unlikely hero emerged in right-back Pablo Zabaleta as the Argentinian marauded forward with five minutes remaining, diverting the ball home adeptly and putting City through to the next round of the FA Cup. Tony Pulis decided to ring the changes from the side that lost 3-1 against Swansea, with Ryan Shotton, Andy Wilkinson, Michael Kightly and Kenwyne Jones replacing Dean Whitehead, Geoff Cameron, Charlie Adam and Peter Crouch. Roberto Mancini, meanwhile, chos ...
World Sports News City trim United lead, Liverpool hit five Manchester City cut Manchester United's Premier League lead to four points by beating Fulham 2-0 on Saturday thanks to a brace of goals from Spanish midfielder David Silva. United are not in action until Sunday when they visit Tottenham Hotspur and defending champions City took advantage to breathe fresh impetus into their title defence. Silva broke the deadlock after just 96 seconds at the Etihad Stadium, slamming home from six yards after Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer parried a long-range shot from Edin Dzeko. Steve Sidwell hit the post for the visitors in the 31st minute and City lost Pablo Zabaleta to injury before Silva added a second with 21 minutes left, gathering a Carlos Tevez flick and beating Schwarzer with a dinked finish. "All we can do is win our games," said City assistant manager David Platt. "We have got 15 left and Man United have got 16 left and I am sure both teams will drop points between now and the end of the season. "We ...

"CHELSEA MUST LEARN TO WIN WITHOUT TALISMAN MATA" The Spaniard's sublime early season form conjures memories of David Silva's virtuoso displays last term, but he needs rest to avoid tailing off as his countryman did 12 Jan 2013 07:44:00 COMMENT By Liam Twomey A year ago, what would prove to be one of the most exciting seasons in Premier League history had just reached its halfway point, still swooning under the spell of a sublime little Spaniard. Having sparkled intermittently in his first season England before enjoying a rare summer rest, David Silva embarked upon his second healthy, physically and mentally refreshed, and prepared to show exactly what had persuaded Manchester City to pay Valencia around £26 million to procure his services in June 2010. He wasted no time, scoring in each of his first two Premier League games against Swansea and Bolton, before providing the inspiration for City’s astonishing 5-1 destruction of Tottenham at White Hart Lane at the end of August. The virtuoso performances ...
It's quite extraordinary on how the Spanish players have had an effect on the Premier League. From Mikel Arterta to Santi Cazorla for the Gunners, Fernando Torres & Juan Mata for the Blues, David Silva for Man City to Michu & Pablo Hernandez for Swansea, the EPL is laced with playmakers from Espana. Rounding it off are the goalkeepers Pepe Reina for the Reds & David De Gea for ManU.
English Premier League Manchester City 3 (Zabaleta 43, Dzeko 56, Aguero pen 74) Stoke City 0 -By Tom Adams {EUROSPORT} 01-01-2013 Manchester City remain seven points behind leaders Manchester United after a comfortable 3-0 victory over Stoke City at the Etihad Stadium. Close-range finishes from Pablo Zabaleta and Edin Dzeko put City in firm control before Sergio Aguero completed the scoring with a penalty that was awarded despite Steven Nzonzi fouling David Silva outside the box after 73 minutes. However, Roberto Mancini's side lost the game's outstanding attacker, Aguero, to what appeared to be a hamstring injury, taking the shine off a fourth win in five games that keeps them in touch with their local rivals. Ryan Shawcross returned from suspension to strengthen the Premier League's meanest defence. For Manchester City, meanwhile, Samir Nasri started a three-game ban and was replaced by James Milner, with Joleon Lescott also in for Matija Nastasic. Dzeko retained his place after scoring twice against No ...
In a weekend in which 41 goals were scored across the 10 Premier League games, there is also a place for Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko, whose double helped the champions to a 4-3 win over Norwich. Team-mate David Silva features as well, while Canaries defender Russell Martin makes the cut after scoring twice in the defeat at Carrow Road. Frank Lampard makes his debut in our side this season following his double which secured a 2-1 comeback victory for Chelsea at Everton, and he is joined in central midfield by Wigan's James McCarthy, who helped the Latics beat relegation rivals Aston Villa 3-0. Liverpool striker Luis Suarez makes his fifth appearance in our TOTW, with his early double guiding the Reds to a 3-0 win at QPR. He is joined in our XI by defender Martin Skrtel. Reading pair Adam Federici and Alex Pearce make the cut after helping the Royals earn just their second win of the season against West Ham, while Tottenham wideman Aaron Lennon rounds off our side after bagging the winner against Sun ...

Man City Outwits Norwich Premier League, Carrow Road - Norwich City 3 (Pilkington 15, Martin 63, 75) Manchester City 4 (Dzeko 2, 5, Aguero 50, Bunn 67 o.g.) Edin Dzeko scored twice and Samir Nasri was sent off as Manchester City clung on for a thrilling 4-3 victory over Norwich City at Carrow Road. Dzeko found the back of the net twice within the opening five minutes as the visitors raced out of the blocks before Anthony Pilkington halved the deficit for Norwich. Nasri was then shown a straight red a minute before half-time, while Sergio Aguero made it 3-1 to the champions after the break. Russell Martin pulled a goal back for Norwich but a Mark Bunn own-goal saw Manchester City restore their two-goal advantage once again, only for Martin to score his second to setup a nervy finish. Dzeko went into the game with just one goal from five Premier League starts this season but the Bosnian needed only 80 seconds to get off the mark. Aguero’s chipped cross found David Silva, who in turn knocked the ball into ...

Mancini concerned by late finishes Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has urged his side to take more advantage of their chances in front of goal after Gareth Barry's injury time header rescued a 1-0 win over Reading on Saturday. The Royals looked set for an upset with scores locked at 0-0 in the 90th minute, but David Silva's cross found Barry at the far post to keep City in touch with league leaders Manchester United. It was the fourth time this season that City have scored the winning goal in the 87th minute or later and while he was relieved with the three points, Mancini believes the Premier League champions are lacking a killer instinct in the first half of matches. "It's more important to score early on in games - my heart is not strong for these late goals," he said. "I think that we deserved to win but when you are in the last two or three minutes it can be difficult if you don't score in the first half when you have lots of chances. "You have to be strong because they defended really well with ...
Downing shines; Barry rescues City * Stewart Downing was the star for Liverpool as they ran out 4-0 winners against Fulham while a last-gasp strike from Gareth Barry gave City a point against Reading. Barry's late goal spared Manchester City's blushes as they edged out bottom side Reading 1-0 at a relieved Etihad Stadium. Roberto Mancini's side trailed local rivals and current league leaders Manchester United by six points in the title race heading into this weekend, and they appeared to be at risk of losing more ground thanks to a dogged defensive effort from the Royals. But Barry rose to head home in stoppage time from David Silva's cross to trim United's lead to three points before their clash with Swansea on Sunday. In the early game, Mikel Arteta's penalty proved enough for Arsenal to defeat Wigan 1-0 and make it three Premier League victories in a row for the first time since March. There was very little between the sides and it was the hosts who had the best chance of the first half but it was wast ...
Juan Mata, David Silva and Santi Carzola all lined up for Premier League player of the year,,, afta they'd say spaniards cnt play football
This news comes in the same week that David Silva and Yaya Toure were named on the FIFPro midfielders shortlist, Vincent Kompany was recognised with a place on the defenders list and Joe Hart was one of only five goalkeepers put forward for the accolade. Mario´s is the only new name from 2011´s forwards list and has been rewarded for an inspired Euro 2012 showing for Italy where he tied with Fernando Torres for the Golden Boot with three goals, including two in the semi-final against Germany. As we told you last week, Sergio is officially one of the deadliest strikers in Premier League history, despite only landing on these shores 18 months ago. He became City´s first 30 goal striker in a decade last season and has started this season in similarly prolific style, with 11 goals for club and country so far. Considering that the forwards list contains the names of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who are joined by Andres Iniesta in the three-man shortlist for the Ballon d´Or itself, perhaps there will ...
Preview: City vs United, Fight Position Peak Game titled Manchester Derby between Manchester City and Manchester United will be presented on the weekend of the 16 Premier League in order to fight the top position. After crashing out of the European tournament, practical concentration City will be concentrated in the domestic league. In the match on Sunday, The Citizens will be featured heavily in the fight that took place at Etihad Stadium in order to eliminate the difference in points between the two teams. However, the City's intention was a little bothered by the injury storm. Micah Richards (knee) and James Milner (hamstring) likely will miss this important match. David Silva is another player who likely will also miss this match. However, coach Roberto Mancini could be replaced by Javi Garcia to play more defensively. Good news came from Gael Clichy, Aleksandar Kolarov, and Jack Rodwell who gradually recovered and was able to play in this match. Kubu United, not without problems. Anderson hamstring a ...
Deputy Football Editor Alex Byrom from Signal Iduna Park UEFA Champions League- Borussia Dortmund vs Manchester City "Manchester City make three changes from the side that were held at home by Everton in the Premier League on Saturday. Matija Nastasic comes into their defence, while Javi Garcia and Scott Sinclair come into midfield for the injured David Silva and suspended Yaya Toure. Sinclair makes his Champions League debut in only his third start since joining City from Swansea in the summer. Borussia Dortmund are without defender Neven Subotic and attacking midfielder Mario Gotze, who are both injured, while prolific Polish striker Robert Lewandowski- reportedly a summer target for City's neighbours Manchester United- is on the bench. Julian Schieber starts up front instead."

David Silva used to be the best player in the Premier League...It's now Juan Mata
Guys like Juan Mata and Mikel Arteta are missing from the La Rojas ( Spanish national Football Team). According to statics Arteta is the most accurate passer of the ball in the Premier League. People are complaining in the blogs that I've read saying that Dela Bosque has got his tactics wrong. No he is the most successful manager of all time. He has won domestic league and Champions League with Real Madrid and also World Cup and Euro with Spain. Besides this he has also won the Toyota Cup. The Spanish midfield is too crowded with talent with the likes of Xavi, Inesta,David Silva,Fabregas etc. They can even afford to play with false striker and win like they did in Euros because the midfielders are also proven scorers. They now face France on the 16 of this month. Deshamps the French manager has packed his central midfield and centre half with big African French guys the replica of Marcel Dessaily who provide steel to counter the Spanish artist. It will be interesting to see if their physical ability can ...

All the action from this afternoon's second and concluding featured Premier League encounter at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City to tie David Silva to new deal & ward off Real Madrid interest: The Premier League champions are ...
Thought on Eden Hazard at Chelsea: Eden Hazard has made some big first impressions, he's managed to pick up 3 assists (5 if you include drawing the penalties) in his first 2 games for Chelsea in the Premier League 12/13 season. Hazard's quick turn of pace and immense ball control is the reason he draws these penalties and makes himself a handful when dribbling in and around the box. • Here are some quick stats about the Chelsea man : - Hazard creates a chance every 22 minutes. - In 2 games he has created a total of 7 chances. - As far as assists goes, he's gotten off to a better start then Mata & David Silva did last season. It took them a little while to settle in. - Obviously it's still early days and it's silly to judge a players ability based on his first 2 games but if Hazard keeps this up he'll be a fantastic signing for Chelsea.

Manchester City won the Premier League title for the first time, staging a stoppage time comeback on Sunday to beat Queens Park Rangers.
Manchester City have taken a huge step towards winning the Premier League title with a 2-0 victory at Newcastle United. - Palmer: Spurs fail to seize chance - Arsenal 3-3 Norwich City Yaya Toure's brace saw City defeat Champions League-chasing Newcastle - a result that, in the opinion of both Roberto Mancini and Sir Alex Ferguson ahead of the match, would be decisive in the title race. After a goalless first-half, Mancini brought on Nigel de Jong on for Samir Nasri, allowing Toure to move into a more advanced role. It proved to be a masterstroke, as the Ivorian played a one-two with Sergio Aguero before curling a first-time strike past a diving Krul. Sergio Aguero missed a gilt-edged opportunity to put the result beyond Newcastle after being released by David Silva, and Toure then missed two chances to double his goal tally - his glancing header flashing wide before slipping when one-on-one with Tim Krul. However, he sealed the win two minutes from time with a cool finish. The result saw City move three p ...
Manchester City moved to within touching distance of their first title for 44 years, as Yaya Toure scored twice to secure a crucial victory over Newcastle United. The Ivory Coast midfielder beat Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul with a low curling shot with 20 minutes left. He then added a second from close range with time running out. City now know that victory over QPR in their final match of the season will secure the Premier League title. This was a dominant display by City, inspired by Vincent Kompany's defensive generalship, David Silva's prodigious work in midfield, stellar finishing by Toure and a workrate and ambition that glowed throughout the team. The omens must have given Roberto Mancini's men cause for hope and optimism before kick-off. It was at this ground on 11 May 1968 that City won to clinch their last league title. Some 44 years on, history repeated itself as City moved to within three points of the prize that has eluded them for so long. While it was understandable that much of the attent ...

English Premier League 2011/2012 With the dust settled on a frantic midweek Manchester Derby that handed the title initiative to City with just 180 minutes left of a fascinating Premier League season, the mind games remain in full swing between Sir Alex Ferguson and Roberto Mancini. A 1-0 win at home to their neighbours on Monday put the destiny of the silverware in City's hands as they seek to end a 44-year wait to be crowned champions of England.

Manchester City 1-0 Manchester United: Kompany header settles derby as Mancini's men leapfrog the champions.The defender converted David Silva's corner in first half added time in order to secure three points as the home side edge closer to their first ever Premier League title Vincent Kompany's header in first half added time earned Roberto Mancini's team the points and catapulted them above United and into top spot on goal difference. City now need only to match the results of their Manchester rivals in the final two games of the league campaign in order to pip Sir Alex Ferguson's men to the trophy. City had scored 12 goals in three matches prior to this fixture and as a result Roberto Mancini opted to stick with the side that had relegated Wolves eight days earlier. That meant that Carlos Tevez faced his former club alongside Sergio Aguero in attack, with David Silva and Samir Nasri in support. Antonio Valencia was surprisingly omitted from the United starting XI, with Park Ji-Sung and Ryan Giggs joini ...
The Manchester Derby: On one side we have Manchester United. The most successful team in English football, the name known around the world. Their attack is led by one of the most tenacious players in the world : Wayne Rooney. Along with Mexican sensation Chicharito Hernandez and one of the best midfielders of his time Paul Scholes, Manchester United look to seal up their 20th Premier League title in their cross-town rivals’ home. On the other side we have Manchester City, the 600 million euro experiment. Saying one player leads this attack may be hard to choose. City have the best striking duo right now with Tevez and Kun Aguero, but the real star of the show (for me at least) is David Silva. He is the reason this machine runs so well. If Silva plays to his full potential city should have no problem winning this. City takes this game 4-2
