David Silva becomes the quickest player in Premier League history to reach 200 wins


Manchester City brushed Everton aside on Saturday evening. 

After going into half-time level at 1-1, Pep Guardiola's side made their quality count in the second 45 minutes and came away from Goodison Park with a 3-1 win. 

Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling got the goals, but it was also a very special day for midfielder David Silva because the win at Everton was his 200th in the Premier League.

Amassing that many victories in England's top flight is impressive enough alone, but doing it as quickly as the Spaniard has done is even better. 

He's the fastest player in the competition's history to reach 200 wins, doing so in 289 appearances.

What a brilliant accomplishment. Silva is also the first Premier League star to reach that number in less than 300 games. 

John Terry previously held the record, winning 200 times in his first 305 appearances. Just behind him was former Chelsea teammate Petr Cech, who did it in 310 games.

Manchester United's Ryan Giggs achieved the feat in 315 games, while Arsenal and Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole needed 318 matches to win 200. 

John Terry has just lost his win record to David Silva

City's back-to-back Premier League titles in the last two seasons have helped their captain break the record. 

And interestingly, before Guardiola arrived at the Etihad, Silva was only on course to reach 200 wins in 310 games.

Talk about the Pep effect. 

Pep Guardiola has had a big effect on Man City since arriving

Not only has the legendary manager guided City to unmatched silverware, but he's helping his players break records too.

Silva and Guardiola will no doubt rack up even more Premier League wins before the 2019/20 season concludes, yet they may be finishing without the title this year. 

Liverpool are currently top of the league, five points clear of City. If the Reds keep winning, it won't matter how many more games Silva and his side win. 

The title race is hotting up

But, it does seem the Spaniard will hold his own Premier League record for quite some time.
