Manchester City fans react to David Silva's superb performance for Spain

Manchester City have congratulated David Silva on a brilliant performance for Spain last night.

Manchester City fans have congratulated David Silva on a good night's work after he shone in Spain's 5-1 win against Macedonia last night. 

The play-maker scored his nation's fourth goal of the match, but it was his movement and creativity which stole the show. 

Of course, Silva will face better opposition than Macedonia this season, but his performance was just further confirmation of his class - which has made him one of the stars of world football in recent seasons. 

It was a display which left City fans purring about seeing their man in action, and Twitter was awash with comments about his quality. 

City take on Arsenal at the weekend and they will need a similar performance from their Spanish creative fulcrum if they are to pick up a result. 

The defending champions have started their campaign reasonably, although their defeat to Stoke City before the international break has meant that they are already having to play catch-up on Chelsea.

If they can beat Arsenal it will lay down a marker, though, as that will be the second of the title contenders they have beaten in this early stage of the season. 

Manuel Pellegrini's men have already dominated Liverpool - winning 3-1 against the Reds - and if they can repeat that standard of performance against Arsenal then they are likely to be taking three points once again.

Central to that will be the quality of Silva's display, and after carrying so much momentum into the game it would a surprise if he does disappoint. 

Here are some of the best tweets from City fans on Silva's performance last night.
