Last season, Manchester City ran rampant in the league and finished on the top of the table with a clear advantage over rivals Manchester United, who finished second.

Now substitute has been reinvented as starter, Silva's latest sparkling display coming in Saturday's 3-0 win over Fulham.

Speaking to reporters, Guardiola has revealed that he intends to keep the player at the club for as long as he stays in charge of the Manchester club.

"He is the most loved guy in the locker room and he played 90 minutes", his manager said.

Both players had very different struggles despite City's success last season. Saturday's meeting with City sees them match up against the side that sits second in the Premier League with 2,726 completed passes through four matches, 497 more than Fulham.

Silva had a unusual status in his debut season as a Manchester City footballer, as the constant who was often confined to cameos, the most-used player but a perennial replacement.

"I don't know how many days he will be out", said the Spaniard, whose side play Lyon in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Asked about his feelings in the moments before the goal, he said: "Angry - quite angry, to be honest". Bale has scored three goals and provided two assists in four La Liga games thus far.

The ball fell kindly for David Silva who controlled it high on his chest - prompting Fulham claims for handball - before burying it in the roof of the net from close range.

On the commencement of the second stanza, City netted again threaten with Sane bursting down the left flank before cutting the ball back for Bernardo, but the Portuguese effort from the edge of the box was blocked. "It depends how I feel physically and mentally", Silva said in an interview for the Premier League Show.

The reigning Premier League champions are unbeaten in the league this season and will be looking to continue their good form against their newly-promoted opponents.

"Lose the dribbling, it doesn't matter, but control the ball and pass the ball simple... miss that, there was lots of that". I don't forget the behaviour he had last season when he played a lot but didn't start.

After the third goal it became a back-to-back affair with City failed to add more despite creating several scoring chances.

There could have been many more goals, but while they opened up Fulham with some ease, City were unable to fully punish them. "All the time they play with the smile and for himself and the team".
