Sunday marked a special occasion for David Silva as he brought up 400 appearances for Manchester City during their 3-1 win over Bournemouth.
The Spaniard won the official Man of the Match award as he left many City fans impressed with his overall display.
Silva could have earned his team a penalty too at one point when he was brought down by Jefferson Lerma but VAR deemed that there was no foul.
The 33-year-old was deemed legendary by one adoring supporter as another described the midfielder as a magician.
A further individual said he was class, failing to remember a time where he ever had a bad game for City. One fan went as far as saying he could be the greatest ever player to put on their colours.
Pep Guardiola’s side took all three points courtesy of a Sergio Aguero double and a strike from Raheem Sterling.
Here’s what supporters have been saying about him.
Legendary David Silva well deserved, true servant of the club???#CTWD

People doubt David Silva… But how can you ever doubt arguably the greatest ever player to play for our club?
He truly is one of a kind. A premier league great without a doubt. He will be sorely missed when he’s gone.
