David Silva double takes Man City one step closer to title

David Silva double takes Man City one step closer to title

Stoke City defender Kurt Zouma believes everyone at the club must fight for all the available points if they are to stay in the Premier League.

The Citizens beat Stoke City 2-0 on Monday night and moved 16 points clear at the top, thanks to a double from David Silva.

"I think when I play football I forget everything, it's good for me to play", he said.

"We can not deny we are close to winning the league but we have to keep working and keep focused, as we did since the first day, (going) game by game, step by step", said City midfielder Fernandinho.

He added: "I'm sure it won't be handed to us".

It took just nine minutes for City to carve open a Stoke side that is looking increasingly certain to suffer relegation this season with every passing week.As has been then case so many times this season, the goal came with devastating pace and precision on the counter-attack after striker Gabriel Jesus had dropped deep and become involved in build-up play.

Goldman Sachs names David Solomon as CEO Lloyd Blankfein's replacement
David Solomon taking over as the next CEO of the company is likely to happen due to the upcoming resignation of Harvey Schwartz. What's more, Blankfein and JPMorgan's Jamie Dimon are the only two remaining big bank CEOs from the 2008 financial crisis.

"The manager said it before the game, we'll look to keep this standard until the end of the season and hopefully into next season as well".

By the time Silva claimed his, and City's, second goal from the first attack of the second half, it was hard to see a route back for the home side.This effort was as pleasing on the eye as the first, after Fernandinho won the ball and played in Silva who exchanged ideal passes with Jesus.

We tried to press at the start of the game but their first goal really killed us - it's not easy playing against Manchester City. It's a lot of points. "But on Saturday we have a final against Everton, a game that we have to win at all costs".

"To be champions is tough, it's complicated". Our legacy behind us is not big in terms of a lot of titles.

"As soon as possible will be better but it doesn't matter where we win it".

The Potters are just a point off safety as things stand but also have the worst goal difference of -28 which could come into play in an increasingly congested battle for survival. We want to be champions. At the beginning it was okay but it's a long time without training - you can not play good.
