Manchester City midfielder David Silva was delighted with his brace in victory over Fulham.

Silva had scored only one goal previously this season and his recent return to form has given City a lift after losing Yaya Toure for the African Nations Cup.

The Spaniard said: "It was great to get two goals and I had the opportunity for a third, for the hat-trick, but I didn't make contact as good as I wanted. But it is the points for the team that really matter.

"It was a good game, the important thing was to get three points and put some pressure on United."
