David Silva is convinced Manchester City can get back in the title race.

Silva has ticked off most of the major prizes with club and country - but believes pegging back Manchester United again would be among the best.

The former Valencia ace, 26, said: "If we could do it again now, it would be right up there with all the other big competitions that I have won.

"Winning the Premier League is seen as a big thing. It would be a great achievement to retain it.

"There is still a long way to go and the disappointment we felt on Sunday is over with.

"Six points is a big gap - but last year they were in front by quite a lot of points and we won the league. It can be done.

"Retaining the title is a difficult thing to achieve, but certainly there is still a long way to go and we will keep at it to win it again.

"I have been lucky. I've won a lot of medals but I'd still like to win more. The players do have the hunger to win it again so we'll go for it."
