Silva insists Man City can haul in Man Utd lead

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.”
