David Silva and Yaya Toure both made integral contributions to Manchester City and the Premier League. The pair were two players who were crucial in Manchester City’s rise to becoming the dominant force in English football we see today. With their contrasting styles of play, they were both crucial contributors in the City midfield at the beginning of City’s era of dominance.

During his time at Manchester City, David Silva made 309 Premier League appearances for the club. He scored 60 goals and added 93 assists during those games for City. The Spanish midfielder is regarded as one of the greatest players to ever play in the Premier League. With his ability to find space and dictate a game from midfield, he was almost unplayable on his day. The Spanish midfielder rightfully sits among the greatest players to ever grace the Premier League.

Yaya Toure was a powerhouse midfielder who lifted City with his power, skill, and his will to win. During his Premier League career with the world champions, he made 230 appearances, adding 59 goals and 32 assists. Toure was a player with a rare combination of power and elegance. His 2013/2014 season is one of the most dominant in Premier League history and was a key factor in Manchester City’s title triumph that season.

This season’s field of nominees for the Premier League Hall of Fame is an illustrious one. David Silva and Yaya Toure have earned their place among the contenders for this season’s honour. They would both be more than deserving inductees if they were to be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year.
