Micah Richards has offered Premier League defenders advice on how to handle Manchester City teammate David Silva.

Silva was outstanding in victory at West Ham United.

"I don't give him any room - I just smash him," said the full back. "He doesn't come near me! We have an agreement - you don't come near me, I won't hurt you. You know what I mean? That is the only way you can stop him."
