Squawka is bringing you a Stat of the Day, every day, for 45 days as part of MANarama’s fundraising campaign for Prostate Cancer UK.

David Silva is a magician.

The Manchester City midfielder can do things with a ball at his feet that millions dream of, but only a handful master.

He’s also picked up a pretty handy winning habit since he joined the Citizens from Valencia back in 2010.

City’s 3-1 victory over Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday saw the Spaniard become the fastest player to clock up 200 Premier League victories in the competition’s history.

Silva needed just 289 appearances to achieve the feat, putting him well clear of Chelsea legends John Terry and Petr Cech, who both required more than 300 games to reach their respective double centuries.

The 33-year-old is entering the twilight years of his career, and would love nothing more than to sign off on a remarkable career with a fifth Premier League title.

However, Pep Guardiola’s side currently trail pacesetters Liverpool by five points and Silva will need to continue his impressive record of three-point hauls if he is to be successful.
