Silva goals aid Manchester City cause

David Silva earned Manchester City FC their sixth win in seven league games, Loïc Rémy scored a debut goal for Queens Park Rangers FC and Liverpool FC put five past Norwich City FC.

Manchester City FC moved to within four points of the Premier League summit after a 2-0 home victory against Fulham FC, on a day when Loïc Rémy struck on his debut for Queens Park Rangers FC.

Roberto Mancini's team recorded their sixth win in seven top-flight games thanks to David Silva, who scored the first of his two goals after just 95 seconds. Leaders Manchester United FC can restore their seven-point cushion on Sunday, when Arsenal FC face Chelsea FC, at Tottenham Hotspur FC. 

Rémy, a €9.5m signing from Olympique de Marseille earlier in the week, took 14 minutes to open his QPR account, only for Joe Cole to earn hosts West Ham United FC a point in the east-west London derby.

Harry Redknapp's bottom-placed side are four points behind three clubs, one of whom, Wigan Athletic FC, lost 3-2 at home to Sunderland AFC. Another, Reading FC, came from behind to prevail 2-1 at Newcastle United FC, who are nervously looking over their shoulders in 16th position.

Elsewhere, Swansea City AFC (3-1) and Liverpool FC (5-0) recorded home victories against Stoke City FC and Norwich City FC respectively. West Bromwich Albion FC fought back from two goals down to deny relegation-threatened Aston Villa FC a vital win in the late fixture.
