Silva enjoyed the most prolific goalscoring season of his Manchester City career, as he netted 12 times in all competitions and added eight assists for good measure.

The Spaniard is perennially among the top playmakers in England, but took it to another level this season as only Eden Hazard scored more goals among non-strikers. Silva has no plans to leave City and will be back to terrorize Premier League defenses again next season.

However, X-rays on his cheekbone came back negative, which prompted him to essentially be cleared. He was not wearing a protective mask during training this week, and while it is unclear if he was tested for a concussion, he's been cleared by the medical staff to play.
