David Silva celebrates being only the third player to score in the Premier League on St. David's Day

The BBC has reported that Manchester City's David Silva last night became only the third David to score on St. David's Day in the Premier League, when he netted during City's 3-0 hammering of Woolwich Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

The two previous Davids to achieve this astonishing feat were Blackburn's David Dunn (ironically, against Manchester City in 2003), and David Luiz, for Chelsea against Manchester United, in 2011.

The Sky Blues are now 16 points clear at the top of the PL, and could, feasibly, be crowned champions as early as 7 April, should results go their way.

If they don't, they won't.

City's next game is against Chelsea at the Etihad on Sunday (GMT 16:00).
In a bizarre twist of fate, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has a brother called David, and his cousin Angela's husband is also a David, albeit pronounced 'Dar-vid'.

To put the icing on the cake, so to speak, the daughter of City head groundsman Wally Arbucklesthwaite is married to a David - David Davidson, who was born in Davidstow on St. David's Day in 1982, the same day as former Manchester City favourite Mike Summerbee bought his future-Manchester City-player son, Nicky Summerbee, two pet white rabbits.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
