Silva lining for City

David Silva and Jo performed an unlikely double act as Manchester City got their Europa League campaign off to a flying start with a 2-0 win against Salzburg.Silva has endured a stop-start first few weeks since his arrival from Valencia and has even been linked with a swift move back to Spain.But the World Cup star provided City with their early lead when he took advantage of Jo's seventh-minute lay-off to stroke home.Silva might have had another just before the interval too, only for home keeper Gerhard Tremmel to make a fine save after the former Valencia man had checked inside Dusan Svento. Jo, who staggeringly was the longest-serving outfield player in the City starting line-up despite spending the past 18 months away on loan, drilled home the second from an acute angle late on to seal the victory.
