Manchester City winger David Silva was delighted with the response from Villarreal fans last night.

City's 3-0 win was Silva's first appearance in Spain since leaving Valencia last year.

"I'm grateful to the fans of Villarreal. Everytime I come here the people of Spain show their love to me," said Silva.

"Can we win the Champions League? It'll be tricky. We have to go step by step."
