Edin Dzeko claims Silva to be in top 3 Player List

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko claims that midfielder David Silva should be one of the top three place in the Premier League.

The Spaniard has been a vital part of the City team since his £ 24 million move from Valencia in 2010. He has already contributed numerous assists and often finds City underperforming when he is not on the pitch. The 30-year-old recently signed a new long-term contract to extend his stay at the Etihad stadium. Dzeko has Silva to thank for number of goals that he has scored in the Premier league. He says that the 28-year-old is easily one of the best players on several fronts.

Silva is not only about assisting and he often makes extremely intelligent runs that open up the opposition. It also provides space for the likes of Sergio Aguero and Yaya Touré to exploit. The midfielder is currently nursing a knee injury that kept him out of action for the last few weeks. He has missed high-profile matches against the likes of Manchester United. The midfielder is understood to be closer to return to first-team. He is targeting the match against Swansea during the weekend or the massive clash against Bayern Munich in the midweek Champions League round.

"For me, he's [one of the] top three players in the Premier League, and to have him around here is amazing, not just for me but for the club.What he can do is just unbelievable; not many players can do it, and when you see his goal against West Ham, you just say 'wow.' David Silva is a great player, and also off the pitch, he's a great lad," said Dzeko. This season, Silva has contributed four goals – two directly as goals and two as assists – in nine Premier League appearances. He is yet to score in the Champions League this campaign.
