Fulham defender Aaron Hughes admits David Silva was different class for Manchester City on Saturday.

Hughes rates the tricky Spaniard the best he's faced.

He told fulhamfc.com: "I have to say David Silva is arguably as good a player as I've ever come across. He was superb on Saturday, and really made City tick. He's a World Cup and European Championship winner with Spain and you can see why - but that's the quality that we were up against."
