Two well-taken goals from David Silva brought Manchester City another step towards the title as they won 2-0 at struggling Stoke City on Monday (Mar 12).
David Silva struck twice as Manchester City took another stride towards their seemingly inevitable coronation as Premier League champions with a 2-0 victory at Stoke. Silva found the net early in each half as Pep Guardiola's men enjoyed a comfortable night at the bet365 Stadium to re-establish a 16-point lead at the top of the table.
The result leaves Man City needing only a maximum of three wins from eight remaining games to take the title, but two would suffice if one of them comes against second-placed Manchester United.
That means there is a possibility City could complete the job in the derby against rivals United on Apr 7, if they beat Everton in their next game on Mar 31.
