       Eddie Howe says Bournemouth's poor record against Manchester City 'inspires' his side

Pep Guardiola has lavished praise on David Silva - but admits he is surprised the Manchester City legend has been such a success in the Premier League. "He had cramp. It was a demanding game against Tottenham and hard against Liverpool (Community Shield), so he was exhausted", Guardiola said.

"He's a tiny little player".

"He's not box-to-box and my image of English football before I came here was that maybe he was going to suffer, but I'm happy that my first impression has been proved wrong". 'These kind of records, or numbers, to do 400 games means many years, many bad and good moments and being there week-by-week. You can make a good season, but he's done it for nearly 10.

"He's ready. I think he's understanding training".

Silva had to overcome his lack of size to succeed but did so through his guile and close control.

"He's one of the most intelligent players I've ever seen", he said.

"After I spoke to managers he had in Spain and everybody said what I realised here afterwards".

"People believe he has quality with the ball, but it's more than that". How he reacts to the bad moments.

"With his specific qualities, surviving in the Premier League is not easy for a long time. He should be so proud".

Silva is in line to make his 400th appearance for City in their Premier League game at Bournemouth on Sunday. "He has a lot of experience, knows exactly what the team needs, what he has to do".

"They have the same points as us after two games and they won away (against Aston Villa) when it is hard to go to a newly promoted team in the first game of the season".
