The Manchester City fans in the Transfer Tavern are becoming increasingly confident of securing a third Premier League title this season following victory over Arsenal on Sunday.
City welcomed Arsenal to the Etihad with a near-perfect record this season, and their unbeaten run never looked in danger as they ran out comfortable 3-1 winners in Manchester. Kevin de Bruyne broke the deadlock after just 19 minutes with a rasping effort that breached the fingertips of Peter Cech on its way into the bottom corner. City looked to be in cruise control when Aguero calmly dispatched a 50th-minute penalty after Sterling was brought down by Monreal. Lacazette came off the bench to briefly half the deficit before Jesus made sure of the points with a tap-in after 74 minutes.
Even at this early stage of the season, the title appears to be City’s to lose. The only circumstance that could halt their pursuit would be the loss of key players through injury or permanent departure from the club.
The blue contingent propping up the bar are concerned by previous reports in The Sun linking their beloved David Silva with a move to Liverpool.
The loss of Silva in the window would certainly leave City with the impossible task of replacing the imperious Spaniard.
While it was a rumour somewhat out of left field, the rumours had us thinking as to what kind of Liverpool players would fit in at City, with Silva quite clearly walking in easily to the Reds’ starting XI.
With that being said, here are two players that could be used as part of a swap-deal for Silva.
