Silva labels Man City's clash with Villarreal as must-win

Manchester City star David Silva says the club MUST win tomorrow night's Champions League meeting with Villarreal.

City, with a draw and a loss, host the Spaniards at Etihad Stadium in Group A and need three points so they can remain in the mix with group leaders Bayern Munich and second-placed Napoli.

"This is a very important game for us - we need to get the three points or we will start to lose touch with the leading teams. It's a tough group but we are good enough to progress to the knock-out stages," he told the club's official website.

"In the Premier League we have got a lot of games under our belt and are playing really well - maybe we need to play more Champions League games before we adapt to the competition.

"Villarreal are a great side that pass the ball around and break very quickly - we will need to be on our guard or they will punish us."
