David Silva eyes third win at Old Trafford

David Silva has set his sights on securing a hat trick of derby wins at Old Trafford when Manchester City visit their local rivals on Tuesday.

David Silva and Manchester City have beaten their rivals at Old Trafford the past two seasons.

Mooney: Look to the future

The Spain international starred in City's 6-1 victory at Old Trafford in October 2011 and their 2-1 win in April 2013.

City, who are 12 points ahead of Manchester United, beat their neighbours 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium in September and will be going for a double this season and a third successive victory on enemy territory.

And Silva, speaking at an event to promote the Anfi Group, said: "We have won the last two years, and hopefully this will be the third one. It's a very important game obviously because it's a derby."

City's prowess this season and United's decline has prompted suggestions that the balance of power has swung to the blue half of Manchester.

But Silva added: "It's a derby but the powers don't shift in derbies. At the moment we are better but in any derby anything can happen. So we just have to go out and win the matches."

City are Capital One Cup winners and are in fourth place in the title race but were knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship club Wigan and were eliminated from the Champions League by Barcelona.

World Cup winner Silva feels that if City are champions, it would be an excellent season.

He said: "I hope we win the Premier League. Two trophies for Manuel Pellegrini in his first year would be a good year. I thought we were slightly unlucky in the Champions League against Barcelona. Yes, the FA Cup was a big disappointment for us."

City endured a difficult February and suffered back-to-back defeats before Saturday's win at Hull, when Silva opened the scoring.

And the 28-year-old said: "After the last game, the team have the confidence back we had four weeks ago."
