Fernandinho delighted to mark Manchester City return with win at Stoke City

Pep Guardiola hailed Silva for his fighting spirit after his double in the Stoke City victory

Pep Guardiola said after the 2-0 Premier League victory over Stoke City that there would be no let up in Manchester City's imperious charge to the Premier League title - where they sit 16 points clear of nearest challengers Manchester United - as well as their pursuit of a first Uefa Champions League trophy.

And the Catalan explained how Silva is keeping himself fit during a hard time in the influential player's personal life. "But now that the boy is improving, I have to make the most of the remaining games we have, which are very important for me and for the team".

"So we are going to go there and do the training we should be doing here". The target is the next game against Everton, and try to play good and try to win the game.

"He trains alone in Valencia when he goes there". "We are happy for that and one more step to the title".

"Hopefully he can solve [the situation] as soon as possible, his lovely kid can grow and grow back at home and he can stay with us all days".

The Spain global ran the show from start to finish in the Potteries on Monday Night Football, with his two goals either side of half-time putting City within touching distance of a third Premier League title.

"Everybody is always asking this question", said Guardiola.

Man City have now scored 85 Premier League goals this season - only 11 teams have ever scored more in a completed Premier League campaign.

Stoke made just one adjustment from the side that drew with Southampton last time out as Jese replaced the injured Mame Biram Diouf in attack.

Even when City goalkeeper Ederson was forced into his first serious action of the evening, it was from his own player, as Kyle Walker intercepted Butland's long clearance with a deflection the Brazilian was forced to tip over his crossbar. We were so happy to have him extend his contract and to spend the next seasons with him.

"He is a huge competitor, one of the hugest competitors I've had as a football player". It means a lot.

"He is a guy, especially in the bad conditions, who never hides".
