David Sees A Silver Lining

Manchester City star David Silva says the Premier League title race is far from over.

The Spanish international midfielder thinks that if defending champions City keep up the pressure on frontrunners Manchester United, the Red Devils “will falter.”

But Silva acknowledges that United’s current seven-point cushion at the top of the table has the potential to get out of hand, and he has warned that City can hardly afford to lose even one more game in their pursuit of their city rivals.

"If we lose, then suddenly the gap is 10 points and that is when it gets really difficult," Silva said.

"But if we keep fighting, we hope that they will falter.”

27-year-old Silva is a bona-fide winner, both with Spain and City last season. And his taste for silverware is compelling him to see the Premier League title race as there to be won.

"All we can do, whatever the gap is, is keep going, every game, and put them under the pressure of knowing that if they lose a game or drop any points, we will get closer to them," Silva said.

"That works the other way, of course, too, because if we lose we will get further away, but we cannot think about that. We just have to continue as we are. The league is still there to be won."
