David Silva was one of several Manchester City players in top form on Monday night.

As it was, City added just two more goals in a pedestrian second half (although it should have had a fifth when Alvaro Negredo was denied a debut goal by an erroneous linesman's flag). First Toure bent in a lovely free-kick, the Samir Nasri, on for Aguero as Silva went into the middle, pounced on a loose ball after another mistake from Debuchy to score the goal that ensured City topped the table.
