Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has identified David Silva as the danger man ahead of Manchester City clash. The Spaniard hasn't enjoyed a good start in England since his £24 million move from Valencia, but his goal against Salzburg in the Europa League on Thursday has prompted Martinez to warn his players that the goal could turn around his compatriot's season.

“David Silva , when he understands the Premier League, can become a massive player because he plays between the lines like nobody else.” Martinez told the Daily Mail.

“He is just a great footballer with a great brain and he will be a special player for [Manchester] City. It will take a while for him to adapt and understand the differences before he can thrive in the Premier League.

“But he looked happy against Salzburg and his body language as fantastic. His confidence is up and that is a big thing because it helps you to make the right decisions on the pitch.”
