Silva, who will end a 10-year association with City when his contract expires at the end of this season, sustained a thigh injury during December's 2-1 defeat to Manchester United and made brief substitute appearances against Everton and Port Vale at the start of this month.

Dimitar Berbatov is backing Manchester City to ease to a 4-1 win over Aston Villa in the Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon.

The Argentina global broke the hat-trick record in the Premier League with his 12th treble since arriving from Atletico Madrid in July 2011 - moving one ahead of Shearer.

When English players are included, Aguero is fifth in the all-time Premier League standings.

"These kind of things need to be our basics, I think it's a great dressing room I've been told".

Another Premier League victory under the belt for Manchester City, one that moved them into second place in the table, and aided their goal difference to the tune of plus five.

Aguero scored a hat-trick against Aston Villa to surpass Thierry Henry's record of 175 goals, and also go past Alan Shearer's hat-trick record with his 12th treble in the top flight.

In addition to scoring the most goals for the club, Aguero also scored arguably the most famous.

De Bruyne was coached by Henry at Belgium and, while he was delighted for Aguero, he said they will both be remembered as extraordinary players. 'Sergio has been here for nine years or so and to do that on a consistent basis for that long is... wow.

"He just plays football and for the rest he keeps himself to himself, so that's nice".

'It's so hard to compare but the records for both speak for themselves.
