Visible signs of improvement

The former Valencia midfielder wasn't the only player on top of his game, with other City players also delivering the much-needed quality.

"I think we are playing better every game. We need to improve a little bit more but we are in a good way. If we play like this, we will get more points, Silva told ManCity.com.

"We could have scored a lot of goals. We scored three and we had a lot of chances, so we are happy with three points."

The 32-year-old also added that the Champions League is a "difficult and tough place", praising his teammates for doing "very well" against the Ukrainian side.
