Guardiola heaps praise on Silva
"The goals, I am happy for David today, he has scored a lot of goals this season and the minutes he played," said Pep after the game.
"He controlled the tempo perfectly. Normally people talk about his skills and technical ability and after that he cannot be an aggressive competitor. And he has both.
"There are no doubts about his skills, but after that, in the bad moments he is always there, he controlled the game, the tempo and to help us have more control.
"And I think the mix, with especially David, and Ilkay Gundogan, they are more aggressive and attacking with more runs in behind, and that also helps us a lot to control the games."
Silva took his tally of goals to eight for the season, and he has put City within touching distance of the Premier League trophy.
