David Silva reminded onlookers of just what Manchester City will be missing next season as he starred in a 5-0 demolition job over Newcastle.
Silva provided the assist for Gabriel Jesus’ opener (10) before Riyad Mahrez (21) and an unfortunate Federico Fernandez own goal (58) put City firmly in control.
Silva then provided the moment of the match with a sublime free-kick (65) as he scored and assisted in a Premier League game for the first time since January 2016. City wrapped up the points courtesy of another Silva assist – his 92th in the Premier League – when Raheem Sterling tapped home (90).
The midfield maestro has already revealed that this season will be his last with City, which will bring the curtain down on an extraordinary period of domestic domination. An all-time great is bowing out on a high.
Despite the loss in the previous match against Southampton, Man City has shown on most occasions how ruthless they can be.
