Three facts about Manchester City:
- City won the Premier League title for the very first time last season - becoming only the fifth club to achieve the feat after Manchester United, Blackburn, Arsenal and Chelsea
- They were in the third tier of English football as recently as 1998, however, before returning to the Premier League with back-to-back promotions
- They were purchased by the Abu Dhabi Group in August 2008 and are now one of the richest football clubs in the world
The talented playmaker was one of City's key men behind last season's Premier League title success. Silva, a Spain international, was instrumental in an attacking midfield role and Arsenal will be well aware of his abilities on the ball.
