NORWICH 1-6 MAN CITY
David Silva set up seven shots, the most by a Man City player in the Premier League this season, managing his first assist since 22nd January vs Tottenham.

Carlos Tévez has scored four goals from seven shots in his two starts since his “return”.

When Tévez and Sergio Agüero have both started PL games this season, City have averaged 4.3 goals per game. Agüero completed eight dribbles in this match – only one player this season has completed more in a PL game this season: Wigan's Victor Moses, on the opening day… against Norwich.

Chris Brunt made the most successful passes into the final third of all players on Saturday (24).

Since the Ulsterman took over they have averaged 10.8 shots per game (3.2 on target, 1.3 goals); under Steve Bruce earlier this season they averaged 13.5 shots per game this season (4.2 on target, 1.15 goals).

SWANSEA 3-0 BLACKBURN
Blackburn made only 139 successful passes, the lowest total in a Premier League match this season by any side apart from Stoke.

MAN UNITED 4-0 ASTON VILLA
