Man City's David Silva deserving of, overdue individual Premier League accolades

Man City's David Silva deserving of, overdue individual Premier League accolades

City will be crowned as Premier League champions at home to close rivals Manchester United on April 7 if they win that game, and away to Everton the weekend before.

The influential defender told Sky Sports: "Everybody in the blue side of Manchester knows it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity".

"We knew important it was to win that game, to be there, to be close".

"I've met him before and he was complimentary to ourselves with the spirit that we have shown".

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.

City, meanwhile, can look forward to a memorable finale to the season given its current form and dominance over the Premier League, although its demanding manager is clearly not in the mood to permit his players to take it easy.

The rankings say Wake County is the healthiest in North Carolina, followed by Orange, Camden, Union and Mecklenburg counties. This graphic from the RWJF report shows how racial differences exceed county differences in low birth weights nationwide.

"You can not deny that we're close to winning the league but you have to keep working and keep focused and as we did since the first day, game by game step by step and working hard every day every week every game you're going to get there". "But the important thing is on March 12, we have 81 points, that is a lot of points".

"We have one game before then which will be hard and then we will see".

"To be champions is complicated". Our club does not have a history of a lot of titles. "We are happy for that and one more step to the title". "Last season we were there and it was good and that's why we're going to the airport now".

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 champion".

City's stunning exit from the FA Cup, at the hands of third-tier Wigan, leaves it without a game until the clash with Everton on the final day of the month. It is a massive boost and relief to be able to play this game like we do.
